The newly established Cancer Data Science Laboratory (CDSL), Center for Cancer Research (CCR), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), in Bethesda, Maryland is recruiting Tenure-eligible or Tenure Track Investigators to join the Intramural Research Program’s mission of high-impact, high reward science. These positions, which are supported with stable financial resources, are the equivalent of Assistant Professor/Associate Professor/Professor in an academic department. The CDSL was formed in early 2018 with the mission of developing and harnessing a broad spectrum of computational approaches for analyzing and integrating cancer omics laboratory and patient data. The CDSL (https://ccr.cancer.gov/cancer-data-science-laboratory) will develop new, cutting-edge computational approaches and algorithms to this end, addressing fundamental research questions concerning cancer origin, evolution, progression and treatment, serving the cancer community at large. The lab will work in a highly collaborative and integrative manner with other CCR research labs to provide an analysis counterpart to their experiments and generate further testable predictions whose experimental outcomes could further feedback to the computation. We encourage outstanding scientists, developing and applying computational approaches for analyzing large scale cancer data to apply. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, cancer genomics and multi-omics analysis, single-cell analysis, deconvolution methods, electronic medical records analysis, cancer evolution and heterogeneity, and the analysis of cancer immunotherapy data.
About NCI's Center for Cancer Research
The Center for Cancer Research (CCR) is an intramural research component of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). CCR’s enabling infrastructure facilitates clinical studies at the NIH Clinical Center, the world’s largest dedicated clinical research complex; provides extensive opportunities for collaboration; and allows scientists and clinicians to undertake high-impact laboratory- and clinic-based investigations. Investigators are supported by a wide array of intellectual and technological and research resources, including animal facilities and dedicated, high quality technology cores in areas such as imaging/microscopy, including cryo-electron microscopy, chemistry/purification, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, SAXS, genomics/DNA sequencing, genetically engineered mice, arrays/molecular profiling, and human genetics/bioinformatics, spanning both basic science and clinical data.
