The Position
Cancer is a complex, resilient disease. Cancer is also a genomic disease, and the key to understanding and defeating it is understanding the diverse genomic patterns that drive cancer. The first generation of cancer genomics delivered ‘things’ – mutations, amplifications, fusions, expression profiles etc. We’re looking for an ambitious postdoc to help us understand the next generation of cancer genomics – the patterns of genomic changes that will reveal the molecular strategies used by tumors, and reveal new therapeutic possibilities. We have access to profiling of over 100,000 tumors from public and private sources, a world-leading bioinformatics department embedded in probably the world’s most successful cancer therapy development organization. This is a unique opportunity to drive cancer genomics to the next level of understanding, and to enable this understanding to be deployed for real patient benefit.
The primary goal of postdocs is scientific discovery and publication (see ****and the program is geared towards developing future independent investigators. The Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at Genentech is one of the largest bioinformatics research groups with a remarkable breadth and depth of expertise, a strong team environment, deep links to our research colleagues, and a uniquely strong opportunity to help develop breakthrough new medicines.
