The Convergence Institute is recruiting postdoctoral fellows for The Convergence Fellows Program that will form a cohort of postdocs spanning scientific disciplines to lead this advance through team science challenge problems in cancer research. The goal of the Convergence Institute is to bring together the brightest minds in cancer biology, clinical oncology, engineering, and computational biology to make new discoveries and bring forward the next generation of cancer therapies. Trainees will work at the cutting-edge of technology-driven, team-science research in cancer biology under the mentorship of JHU School of Medicine Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center investigators.
PhD or equivalent with commitment to the application of emerging technologies, computational biology, and quantitative sciences to basic and translational cancer research. Candidates who are computationally trained (e.g., degree in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Biomedical Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, or Biostatistics) or from biology disciplines who are seeking training in computation and technology development will also be considered.
A complete application should include: Cover letter, Current CV, Three letters of recommendation. The program will begin accepting applications during the Fall of 2022, with a planned start date of September 2023. The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
