Join the new cBio Center @DFCI!

Research at the new interdisciplinary cBio Center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, focused on computational and systems biology, addresses important and challenging questions about basic biology and cancer. Our discoveries are based on computational and data science methods such as statistical physics and machine learning, as well as experimental biology and high throughput technologies. We serve the community by developing enterprise-grade software and information services, such as the open source cBioPortal for Cancer Genomics, which aim to build strong bridges between research and patients in the clinic.

Scientific Research Director (cBio Center)

Play a central part in building the new cBio center. Help develop an agile and innovative program to generate scientific discoveries, serve the cancer research community with information resources and drive the next generation of cancer care.

Your scientific and managerial role, working with faculty and staff, includes management of scientific projects and collaborations, recruitment, grant applications and reports, social media communication, overall budget planning, as well as planning the content of seminars and workshops.

You have a Ph.D. or equivalent and substantial experience in a leadership position at an academic institution, biotech, pharmaceutical company, or scientific publishing house. ( More information )

Postdoc (Sander Lab)

Research topics include: perturbation biology and network pharmacology; cancer genomics, proteomics & metabolomics; protein structure, function & evolution; and biological information resources (PathwayCommons, cBioPortal, EVfold).

Work on algorithms and computational analysis, and/or on combination therapy and evolution experiments in the wet lab. Collaborate with others and lead a project. Do imaginative basic science that bridges computational modeling and experiment, and help apply it to real life. ( More information )

Senior Lab Technician (Sander Lab)

Assist with and drive molecular and cellular biology research projects, help with the establishment of the experimental laboratory, collaborate with computational biologists, and work closely with leadership to coordinate daily lab operations.
