The lab of Martin Schaefer at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO) in Milan is now recruiting two early-career scientists with a strong computational background. We are looking for one PhD student and one PostDoc.
The aim of the open positions is to further the understanding of cancer evolution by developing methods that allow to identify cancer driver events beyond point mutations (such as epigenetic changes or chromosomal rearrangements) and to apply these methods to experimental and clinical data. More details on the research interests of the lab can be found at the lab homepage: www.schaeferlab.org.
Candidates should have expertise in statistics, programming (ideally R and Java or C++) and the analysis of omics data. In particular, we encourage researchers with interest in either population genetics or network biology to apply.
The IEO is one of Europe’s leading cancer research institutes in a central location of Milan and hosts a vibrant, international research community. It provides postgraduate education through the European School of Molecular Medicine (SEMM) with a PhD program in Systems Medicine.
