Postdoctoral position in Computational Oncology & Machine Learning

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
Biomedical Informatics
United States PA Pittsburgh


Two NIH-funded postdoctoral positions in Computational Oncology are available in the laboratory of Dr. Osmanbeyoglu at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and Department of Biomedical Informatics. Projects are in the areas of cancer genomics, epigenetics of drug response, and immunotherapy and are executed through multi-disciplinary collaborations. We have a particular interest in developing statistical methods for single cell multi-omics integration.

We are seeking competitive candidates who have recently completed (or are close to completing) a Ph.D. in an applied quantitative discipline, such as computational biology, bioinformatics, biostatistics or computer science with a strong interest in either basic or translational cancer research. A strong computational background is needed and experience in machine learning is desired, as is previous experience with functional analysis of omics data. Opportunities for wet lab biologists interested in data science are also available. We work closely with basic and clinical science collaborators, both at University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and other top tier institutions. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.


-PhD in Computational Biology, Mathematics, Computer Science, Statistics or a related technical discipline.
-Excellent programming ability
-Experience working with multiomic datasets
