Graduate positions

New students can join the lab via the Anatomy and Cell Biology graduate program.

Prospective students should send their C.V. along with 2-3 references to vanessadumeaux@gmail.com. Please ensure that you describe your previous training, research experience or other items you deem relevant to the position.

Possible research topics include:

  • Identifying signatures to predict treatment response in breast cancer
  • Single-cell genomics of immune responses to cancer
  • Microbial single-cell transcriptomics

Applicants with a background and/or prior experience in data science, microbiology or immunology will be preferred. Unfortunately we cannot respond to all emails.

Posgraduate positions

Postdoctoral position in cancer informatics and statistics

My collaborators and I have a posdoctoral position open related to a project in cancer genomics and informatics, specifically breast ductal in situ carcinoma (DCIS). The project is led by a multidisciplinary team comprised of Prof Michael Hallett, Dr E Rakovitch at Sunnybrook Hospital (Toronto), myself and collaborators at the OICR (Toronto), UBC (Vancouver) and MD Anderson (Texas), providing an excellent training environment. This is a CIHR funded project and involves the analysis of a large collection of profiles of DCIS tumors towards specific clinical end-points. Additionally, the PIs will work with the post-doc to develop a plan that meets the individual’s career goals.

Ideal candidates will have:

  • Ph.D. in biostatistics, computational biology, data science, epidemiology, or related disciplines
  • expertise in manipulation, analysis, and visualization of high-throughput genomics data
  • programming experience using R and/or Python. Duration: 1 year (but with potential for longer) Salary: 60K / year + benefits Location: Canada (London, Ontario or remotely within the country)

Please send your application to vanessadumeaux@gmail.com or hallett.mike.t@gmail.com. Applications will be reviewed continuously until the position is filled. Unfortunately we cannot respond to all emails.
