Post-doctoral opportunities in Systems Medicine and Bioinformatics at Stanford University

The laboratory of Dr. Atul Butte at Stanford Medical School is seeking highly motivated investigators to develop and study novel approaches in data-driven biomedical research to discover new biomarkers, therapeutics, and to revolutionize health and health-care. Post-doctoral fellowships are fully funded for at least 2 years.

Ideal candidates will have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. with a strong background in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, and genomics, excellent communication and programming skills, and a great publication record.

Strong problem-solving skills, creative thinking, and the ability to build new software tools as needed are required. A dual background in both computation and molecular biology or medicine or pharmacology will be a strong plus. Prior experience with genetic, microarray, drug, or clinical databases, text-mining, knowledge representation, or parallel computing platforms is a plus. Applicants must possess good communication skills and be fluent in both spoken and written English.

This exciting work will be guided by multidisciplinary collaborations with top scientists in stem-cell, immunology, diabetes, and cancer biology research at Stanford.
