We are seeking a postdoc with bioinformatics skills and a strong grasp of molecular biology. They will collaborate with us, Prof. Guang Yao, and colleagues in information science on a DARPA-funded project to mine the literature and discover the Big Mechanisms behind cancer. They will also have ample time to work on other related cancer bioinformatics projects that build upon their interests and strengths. For more information and instructions on how to apply, click here.

Our proposal for the DARPA "Big Mechanism" Program has been chosen for funding! We are collaborating with researchers in SISTA, who will build a system for computationally inferring casual models of cancer pathways from the cancer literature. Our role, together with Guang Yao's group, is to guide the development from a biological perspective and to apply the system to generate and test hypotheses about cancer biology.
