Join Our Team!
We are actively seeking highly motivated, dynamic, and curious individuals to join our team. We are always interested in talented post-doctoral fellows, computational biologists,graduate students, technicians, and volunteers.
We value diversity, and applicants from gender, racial, ethnic, and other groups underrepresented in science, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, are highly encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should email Dr. Barbieri with a copy of their CV and their scientific interests. See below for specific opportunities.
The Department of Urology, Institute for Precision Medicine and Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College are seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher with a background in cancer biology or a related field to join our team. We are seeking a dynamic individual who will be responsible, as a member of a team, for designing and executing studies focused on defining the functional impact of novel molecular alterations in prostate cancer and other urologic diseases.
Our research is focused on definition of distinct molecular classes of prostate cancer using genomic data from human samples, studying the functional impact of novel genetic and epigenetic alterations in preclinical models, and investigating the potential to translate these findings to clinical relevance. The work will be performed under the supervision of Dr. Christopher Barbieri, Assistant Professor of Urology and Assistant Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology. Our group is heavily involved in next generation sequencing of human prostate cancers, including large-scale collaborative efforts such as TCGA and the SU2C/PCF Dream Team. The candidate will work within an integrated, multidisciplinary team composed of basic scientists, computational biologists, pathologists, medical oncologists, and urologists, with significant resources for bioinformatics support and studies in human tissues.
The candidate is expected to perform experiments exploring genetic and epigenetic alterations using a variety of preclinical model systems including cell lines, xenografts, and genetically engineered mouse models. A strong background in mouse models of human cancer and a desire to develop and implement new methodologies is highly advantageous. There will be numerous opportunities for training to complement current skills, and we envision numerous collaborations with other outstanding scientists.
Applicants should have completed a PhD in cell biology or a related field, together with a strong publication record, and strong previous research experience in signal transduction, transcriptional control, genomics and bioinformatics, or related fields. Experience with several of the following activities is desirable: characterization of genetically engineered mouse models, work with patient-derived xenografts and culture of primary cells. Initial salary is commensurate with experience. Applying for independent funding is not required, but is strongly encouraged for the career development of the candidate.
