The European Molecular Biology Laboratory - European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the Gerstung research group, which works in the area of computational cancer biology.
Cancer is a disease driven by the life-long accumulation of mutations in our cell's genomes. The cancer data science group develops and applies statistical methods to large cancer data sets to gain insight into the origins of cancer and to implement models to predict cancer progression and outcomes. To achieve this, the group works with genomic, transcriptomic and imaging data sets from thousands to millions of cancer patients.
The Gerstung group has made several contributions to detect the first changes in cancer cells and predict the rates of developing cancer, based on these data. We have also developed genomic classification schemes that showed that the same cancers can often be subdivided into multiple genetically distinct groups and implemented personalised prognostic schemes that yield a detailed risk assessment based on each patient's individual genetic makeup.
As a Postdoctoral Fellow in the group you will contribute to our research portfolio, ranging from cancer evolution over imaging to large scale epidemiological data analysis projects. You will drive your own research project and collaborate closely with other members of the group as well as local and international collaboration partners.
