Job Detail

Postdoctoral Research Associate - Paul Geeleher Lab
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

The Geeleher Lab is seeking outstanding candidates for a fully supported postdoctoral fellowship focused on developing innovative computational and statistical approaches to inform and improve therapies for pediatric cancer and other diseases. Research areas include: (1) Developing machine learning approaches for integration of pre-clinical, clinical genomics and electronic health record data for drug re-purposing and pharmacogenomics of anticancer agents, and (2) Developing statistical methods for integrating single cell and bulk tissue expression data to understand the relationship between common inherited genetic variation, gene expression, and drug response.


Candidates must hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent). Applicants with a Ph.D. in a quantitative field (computational biology, genetics/genomics, statistics, mathematics, computer science & related fields) are encouraged to apply. Strong candidates from a primarily wet-lab or clinical background who wish to develop sophisticated quantitative skills will also be considered. Successful candidates will have a track record of scientific productivity, e.g. a first author paper, or a demonstrable contribution to a large project. Experience working in pediatric cancer is an advantage but not necessary.
