Postdoctoral Research Fellow

We are currently seeking an ambitious, enthusiastic, and motivated postdoctoral research fellow to join our team of bioinformaticians, molecular biologists, and pathology fellows addressing the challenges posed by intra-tumor genetic heterogeneity in cancers. Experience and track record in functional genomics and molecular and/or cell biology are required, as is the ability to work independently and to provide innovative solutions to complex problems. Past experience in molecular biology and models to address the identification of driver genetic aberrations and/or mechanisms of genetic heterogeneity in cancers would be desirable. Track record in the field, including publications as the first author, would be a bonus.

Our laboratory offers a collegial environment, with access to cutting-edge genomic technologies and our dedicated high-performance computing system.


A postdoctoral position is likely to be available in summer 2014 for a highly motivated candidate with a background in bioinformatics interested in investigating inter- and intratumor genetic heterogeneity in cancers. Projects include high-depth and single-cell sequencing analysis and high-throughput functional genomics approaches to identify drivers of rare types of breast and endometrial cancer. Applicants should hold a PhD degree in bioinformatics and have previous experience and track record in massively parallel sequencing data analysis.

For informal inquiries, please contact Britta Weigelt ( or Jorge Reis-Filho (

Application Requirements
