Postdoctoral Associates

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with training in molecular cancer epidemiology, data science, bioinformatics or computational biology. Our postdoctoral training will provide fellows with the specialized skills to incorporate novel high-throughput technologies into large-scale collaborative epidemiology/clinical studies and to become a cross-trained cancer researcher. Primary responsibilities include contributing to the study design, leading analyses of high dimensional data (e.g. RNA-seq, proteomics, microbiome, accelerometers) using state-of-art computational tools, and manuscript writing. The candidate will be working in a collaborative environment with leading faculty members in clinical medicine, epidemiology, bioinformatics, and computational biology. Interested applicants should send their CV and cover letter to yin.cao@wustl.edu.
