A 3-year postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr V Anne Smith to
perform systems biology research aiming to improve predictive patient selection for
ovarian cancer.
The project is part of a collaborative effort with researchers at the Edinburgh Cancer
Research Centre under the auspices of Centre for Research in Informatics and Systems
Pathology (CRISP).
You will work with gene and protein data collected by our Edinburgh colleagues from
xenograft and clinical samples; you will apply Bayesian network inference algorithms to
identify biomarker pathways predicting patient response to therapy.

You should have a PhD in Systems or Computational Biology, a Computational
Science, or related field, strong computer programming skills, and a desire to perform
clinically relevant systems biology research.
