Albert Einstein Cancer Center

Microbiome, Computational Biology and HPV Research

We have an opening for an individual with a desire to investigate the role of the microbiome/mycobiome in human health. The individual will join a translational laboratory studying various aspects of microbiome, HPV and cancer.  We seek an energetic and creative individual with strong analytic/computational skills interested in NGS datasets. We are using evolutionary biologic approaches to understand why some HPVs cause cancer and others do not.  We are translating analytic epidemiological studies into biochemical and genetic experiments to understand the molecular basis of these processes.  Previous training in studies of epigenetics/methylation, evolutionary biology, systems biology or other highly quantitative disciplines/bioinformatics required. Appointment at post-doctoral or research assistant level available based on experience and qualifications. Exceptional individuals, irrespective of degree, will be considered.
