Postdoc fellow in single cell cancer genomics

University of Pennsylvania
United States Pennsylvania Philadelphia


The Tan laboratory ( is seeking a self-motivated and enthusiastic candidate for a postdoctoral fellow position. The Tan research group ( is interdisciplinary and highly collaborative, utilizing both computational and experimental approaches to study gene regulation. We have pioneered multiple computational algorithms for regulatory genomics, epigenomics, and network biology.

We are seeking a self-motivated and enthusiastic candidate for a postdoctoral scholar position. The postdoc will participate in an exciting project that uses various single-cell technologies to understand tumor clonal evolution and cellular heterogeneity within the tumor microenvironment. The project is funded by a recent NCI center grant to establish the center for pediatric tumor cell atlas as part of the Moonshot initiative. The project provides an excellent training
opportunity in single cell biology and cancer biology.


The applicant should have a Ph.D. degree in biological sciences, such as genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology etc. The candidate should be proficient in modern molecular and cell biology protocols. An established track record (as evidenced by publications in peer-viewed journals) in relevant field is required. Experience with next-gen
sequencing, single-cell, and imaging technologies is a significant plus.
