Postdoctoral position - multi-omic bioinformatics to study inter-organ communication and cancer (...

Updated: 3 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 03 Aug 2022

We are looking for a collaborative and self-motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to work in the laboratory of Dr. Yoshiaki Tanaka in Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital Research Center at University of Montreal in Canada. The Tanaka lab aims to gain molecular insights of cancer progression and invasion using genomic and computational platforms. The successful candidates will be part of an exciting international collaborative and interdisciplinary convergence environment project “Modeling Human Multi-Organ Interaction in Disease - Cancer Cachexia (MORGI)” funded by the Univeristy of Oslo interdisciplinary strategic area – UiO:Life Science . The constellation includes the labs of Dr. Tor Erik Rusten (University of Oslo, Norway), DR. Gareth Sullivan (Oslo University Hospital, Norway) Dr. Yoshiaki Tanaka (bioinformatics, Montreal, Canada), Dr. Anne Kjersti Befring (law, Oslo), Dr. Teresa Zimmers (cancer cachexia, Uni. of Indiana, USA), Dr. Nikolaj Gadegaard (organ on chip, Uni of Glasgow, Scotland). Dr. Anne Hope Jahren (metabolomics), Dr. Anders Strand (ethics), Dr. Tuula Nyman (proteomics) and Dr. Åslaug Helland (cancer clinic) in Oslo.

Cancer Cachexia (CC) is a multi-organ disorder that leads to metabolic reprogramming, systemic inflammation, and organ degeneration, resulting in reduced quality of life, prevention of cancer treatment and death. 

The successful candidate will conduct large-scale bioinformatics analysis of multi-omics datasets (e.g. transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics) from CC models and development of mathematical models to integrate these multi-omics datasets. He/She will be also responsible for designing of analytic pipelines, data interpretation, data organization, and manuscript preparation.
