The National Cancer Institute is expanding its research program in computational and systems biology for elucidating the steps of oncogenesis, identification of key molecular targets and developing more effective treatments and diagnostics for patients with cancer. Rapid developments in whole genome characterization of tumors are providing important opportunities to gain insight into the molecular basis of cancer but translating data to biological knowledge requires increased utilization of biological systems modeling and computational and statistical methods. We are seeking exceptional applicants with training and experience in cancer biology, genomics, statistics for high dimensional data and computation. Candidates should be interested in a focused, team oriented research program to bridge the gap between basic research and clinical medicine and have an impact on cancer therapeutics. Multiple positions are available. Positions above the post-doctoral fellowship level require U.S. citizenship. Grade and salary are dependent upon experience. Successful candidates will be members of the section on computational and systems biology of the Biometric Research Branch with co-appointments in collaborating components. This is an exploratory announcement to gauge interest and the candidate pool.  If you provide us with your email address we will inform you when a Vacancy Announcement (VA) to fill the position is issued. Interested applicants should send curriculum vitae, statement of interest and contact information for three references to Dr. Richard Simon, rsimon AT
