Tenure-Earning Assistant/Associate Member Bioinformatics

Moffitt Cancer Center
Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics
United States FL Tampa


The Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at Moffitt Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, is seeking a faculty member in the tenure-earning rank of Assistant/Associate Member with preference for strong expertise in the analysis and methods development related to single-cell sequencing (e.g., scRNA-seq, scATAC-seq). Methodological research in bioinformatics is also expected.

The Department currently has 19 faculty and approximately 32 staff members engaged in a wide range of statistical and bioinformatics research and collaborations on clinical and biological studies in cancer including novel therapeutic and drug discoveries, prognostic and predictive biomarker developments, chemoprevention, high throughput genomics, proteomics & metabolomics, next-generation sequencing data-based investigations, epidemiological studies, comparative effectiveness research, clinical trial designs, and personalized medicine studies. Many of these projects draw upon Moffitt’s Total Cancer Care initiative, which provides access to a comprehensive set of clinical and molecular data on a large number of cancer patients.

Academic rank beyond Assistant Member will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. Appointment at the Associate Member rank requires a minimum of five years of experience at the Assistant Member/Assistant Professor level. Moffitt is affiliated with the University of South Florida and a University appointment is available in the rank of Assistant/Associate/Full Professor as applicable. Salary and start-up package (based on research track) is competitive with similar institutions.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until position is filled. Please be sure to attach your CV and cover letter. Questions about the opportunity may be directed to the search committee chair, Dr. Aik Choon Tan at AikChoon.Tan@Moffitt.org.

Located in Tampa, this position welcomes someone who appreciates the great beaches and easy living associated with the Gulf Coast of Florida. Tampa is a thriving city with culture, restaurants and a high quality of life.

• We seek candidates who can contribute to the many current clinical and basic science studies at Moffitt, as evidenced by a history of peer-reviewed publications and involvement in grant supported research projects.
• Preference will be given to applicants with an outstanding record of team science or collaborative bioinformatics, with an emphasis in single-cell sequencing and high-throughput sequencing.
• The candidate is expected to identify and resolve methodological issues that arise in collaborative research, as a major expectation is to identify areas of methodological research in which to engage that will benefit the candidate’s collaborative research.

• Conduct independent and collaborative genomics-based research in bioinformatics, particularly in the area of single cell sequencing.
• Team science collaboration to tackle a variety of cancer clinical and basic science research projects.
• Communicate clearly and openly.
• Build relationships to promote a collaborative environment.

Credentials and Qualifications: Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. in biomedical informatics, bioinformatics, computational immunology, computer science, biostatistics or related field and relevant research training and experience.
