Montpellier Cancer Research Institute is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow

Postdoctoral Position in Computational Modeling of the Tumor Microenvironment

The Colinge Laboratory Cancer Bioinformatics and Systems Biology at IRCM (Cancer Research Institute of Montpellier) is looking for a talented postdoctoral fellow to work on the evolution of the tumor microenvironment (TME) in response to therapy. This computational work will build upon on-going developments conducted in the lab to infer cellular interactions taking place in the TME. Both single-cell and bulk transcriptomics configurations will be considered. A significant part of the research will relate to lung adenocarcinoma and involve a consortium of expert laboratories in lung cancer and mouse models thereof, animal computer tomography, and 3D imaging. The postdoc position is funded for three years; a 1-year contract will be offered first and extended for another two years based on performance.

Preferred qualifications are a bioinformatics Ph.D. with solid computational skills or a mathematics, physics, or computer science Ph.D. with strong interests in life science applications.

Interested applicants should e-mail their CV, a letter of motivation, and the names and e-mails of 2 references to Prof Jacques Colinge ( Applications will be studied immediately.
