Division:  Pediatrics
Work Location:  Houston, TX
Requisition ID:  13899


An Assistant Professor position is available at Texas Children's Cancer Center, Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine for Bioinformatics focused on cancer biology and immunotherapy of pediatric central nervous system tumors. We offer outstanding state-of-the-art recently expanded facilities and a highly interactive basic and clinical research environment.


You will work alongside clinicians and research scientists with diverse backgrounds, including other bioinformaticians and computational biologists, molecular biologists, immunologists, pediatric neuro-oncologists, developmental biologists, pathologists, and neurosurgeons. You will be involved in bioinformatics research and its applications to cutting-edge novel therapeutics and immunotherapy approaches for pediatric brain tumors. This work is expected to include analysis of bulk and single-cell DNA, RNA, and protein expression data, including data processing, statistical analyses, network analyses, and data visualization. Projects include a wide spectrum from pure bioinformatics to pre-clinical projects and early phase clinical trials administered by our research programs in pediatric neuro-oncology, precision medicine and immune-oncology. 

Candidates must have a degree in a computational science with a minimum of 2 years of experience in analyzing biological data. Knowledge of R, a scripting language (e.g. Perl, Python), and a programming language (e.g. C, Java) are required. Experience with analyzing high-throughput and single-cell assays is preferred, as well as background in algorithm design for biological networks and computational analyses of biological data. Excellent communication skills and team-working skills are essential.
