We are seeking research scientists with strong bioinformatics experience.
The MacFeeter-Hamilton Neuro-oncology Program is a dedicated research laboratory at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. We have a comprehensive translational program in brain tumor research. I am a neurosurgeon and senior scientist with a dedicated clinical practice and research program in brain tumors. Our key research streams include genomics and molecular advances in brain tumors, tumor metabolism and tumor angiogenesis/microenvironment. We have a dedicated clinically annotated brain tumor bank, that serves as an invaluable resource for multi-omics research. We have a 15 member team of wet-bench and dry-lab scientists and graduate students together with support technicians and clinical coordinators.
We are seeking research associates at the level of postdoctoral fellows or scientific associates with strong bioinformatics experience, in particular expertise in analysis of bisulfide based methylation data, next generation sequencing (ChIPseq, RNAseq, CLIP etc.), single cell approaches and whole genome sequencing. The ability to conduct research independently is essential and to have experience in supervising students, preparing scientific reports and grants is necessary. The applicant must have a PhD in either of the following areas molecular genetics, computational biology, bioinformatics or a related disciplines. Outstanding communication and teamwork skills are essential.
The work will be conducted at the University Health Network and the University of Toronto, a major international centre of genomics, proteomics and systems biology research, in the heart of Toronto. The applicant will be co-supervised by principal investigators involved in experimental cancer research and computational biology/bioinformatics.
