The Cancer Genomics and Evolution Laboratory has multiple positions open for postdoctoral fellows in computational biology. The fellows will spearhead projects in large-scale cancer genomics, with a focus on elucidating the evolutionary history of cancer metastases. Highly motivated individuals who have recently obtained a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. and have a strong background in computational biology, genomics or genetics or related fields, are encouraged to apply.
