Postdoctoral in Cancer Genomics - Bioinformatics/ Computational Biology


Rozzano, IT, 20089


The research groups of Precision Medicine and Oncognomics led by Prof. Salvatore Piscuoglio ( and Prof. Charlotte Ng ( be based at the Humanitas University, Milan, Italy, from January 2024 are seeking two highly motivated postdoctoral fellows in Bioinformatics/ Computational Biology (100%) to join our team of molecular and cell biologists, lab technicians, pathologists, and clinical fellows. The laboratories aim to answer questions related to the contribution of important genetic alterations and their interactions to cancer development. We integrate multi-omics approaches, including single-cell and spatial omics, and in silico prediction (e.g. artificial intelligence) to identify and to characterize prognostic and/ or predictive biomarkers to address outstanding questions in precision oncology.



Your position

The candidates will further our understanding of cancer biology using multi-omics profiling and computational biology approaches. The candidates will have the opportunity to develop, optimize and apply cutting-edge bioinformatics methods to analyse and integrate diverse, state-of-the-art sequencing applications to define cancer-driving alterations and interactions. The candidates will have the flexibility to develop and lead their own projects within the areas of interest of the laboratories. The candidate will also assist in the supervision of Ph.D. students.


Your profile

  • Ph.D. in genetics, molecular biology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, computational biology or a related discipline
  • proven experience with next-generation sequencing analysis
  • strong computational and statistical skills (e.g. unix, python, R)
  • strong interest in cancer biology
  • experience with cancer genomics is a strong plus
  • ability to work independently, to be a team player, and to collaborate with researchers from various backgrounds
  • good organizational skills and ability to handle multiple projects in parallel
  • experience with manuscript writing
  • experience with grant writing is a plus
  • fluency in English is a must
