Cancer Genomics of Lymphoproliferative or Gastrointestinal Cancers Postdoctoral Fellowship

Work with Drs. Alisa Goldstein and Mary L. McMaster

Alisa Goldstein, Ph.D.

Investigators in the Clinical Genetics Branch are seeking a postdoctoral fellow with an interest in conducting multi-omics analyses to identify major susceptibility genes and modifier factors for lymphoproliferative and gastrointestinal cancers. The potential fellow will be analyzing high-dimensional germline genomic data (e.g., whole-exome sequencing, SNP array, RNASeq, methylation array) derived primarily from multi-generational families with lymphoproliferative or gastrointestinal diseases, such as lymphoma, leukemia, Waldenström macroglobulinemia, and esophageal, gastric, or pancreatic cancer.

The candidate will have the opportunity of working closely with researchers with expertise in epidemiology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, genetics, and genomics and will have extensive career development training opportunities through the DCEG Office of Education. Learn more about the other advantages of being a DCEG fellow, including our distinctive research environment, mentorship, professional development, compensation and benefits, and commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Qualifications

Mary L. McMaster, M.D.

Applicants with a doctoral degree in genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics, bioinformatics, or biostatistics are preferred. Candidates with a doctoral degree in related fields with strong quantitative skills are also encouraged to apply. Experience in analyses of lymphoproliferative diseases, gastrointestinal cancer or omics data is a plus.

Application

Submit your CV/resume to the NCI application database. For more information about this position, please contact Alisa Goldstein, Ph.D., or Mary L. McMaster, M.D.
