Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.

 
Roles & Responsibilities:
We are looking for highly motivated, detail-oriented individuals genuinely interested in research bridging medicine and genomics to join the newly established Tsankov lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. Our lab’s overall vision is to build data-driven, quantitative models that improve diagnosis, find new drug-able pathways, and personalize treatment of patients with lung cancer and respiratory diseases.

New lab members have the option of being cross-trained to apply and develop computational frameworks and experimental techniques for high-throughput, next generation sequencing (NGS) datasets (e.g. single-cell transcriptomic, epigenomic, and spatial data). The vibrant, multidisciplinary training environment will allow for learning the state-of-the-art in single cell genomics analysis/technologies and for close interactions with clinical scientists and our collaborators at Mount Sinai, the Broad Institute, and Harvard Medical school.   
  • Process and analyze NGS and other biomedical data using established pipelines.  
  • Develop and benchmark new tools for NGS and single cell data analysis. 
  • Collaborate with researchers in interpretation of data. 
  • Participate in the preparation of manuscripts, grants, and presentations. 
Requirements:
  • BS in computer science, comp bio, or other quantitative discipline. 
  • Team oriented with abilities to think creatively and work independently. 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills. 
  • Programming/scripting skills in R, Matlab, Python/Jupyter, Perl, Unix, and/or LSF.
