Research position in computational oncology: modeling bio-mechanics of tumor development and treatment
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) Program at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. Moffitt is shaping the future of cancer care through innovative research, clinical advances and leading-edge programs that bridge caregiver, family and hope. From pioneering programs like Total Cancer Care™ to providing mentoring and an environment that encourages excellence, Moffitt Cancer Center helps you work to be your best.
We are seeking a talented person interested in applying mathematical modeling and computational simulations to study various aspects of tumor initiation, progression and treatment. The appointed candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Katarzyna Rejniak within one of the nationwide NIH funded scientific initiatives: either the Integrative Cancer Biology Program (http://icbp.nci.nih.gov) or the Physical Sciences Oncology Program (http://physics.cancer.gov).
These projects will require implementation of various computational techniques for experimental data analysis and their integration with computational models, thus the potential candidate is expected to be highly motivated and scientifically curious. One of the project may involve use of the immersed boundary method, thus candidates familiar with CFD techniques are encouraged to apply.
To be considered, a PhD in applied mathematics, scientific computing, computer science or a similar field is required. The ideal candidate will have experience in modeling biological systems, strong working knowledge of computer programming languages (C/C++, Fortran, Java, Matlab or similar languages), demonstrated creativity, good communication skills and a desire to work closely with experimentalists. The ability to work both within a group and independently is critical.
Please apply online to REQ ID 5995 at www.moffitt.org/careers, (or click here) and submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae and the names and email addresses of three academic/professional references directly to Dr. Rejniak at Kasia.Rejniak@moffitt.org.
The position will remain open until filled.
