The Faltas Lab at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City (https://faltaslab.weill.cornell.edu/) is seeking postdoctoral candidates with a bioinformatics background to lead a project investigating the role of germline and somatic variants as immunogenomic determinants of treatment response and bladder cancer evolution. This project is funded by a recent grant from the Polyethnic-1000 (P-1000) consortium
Our well-funded and diverse laboratory is a vibrant and stimulating environment for scientific growth and fostering the independent careers of postdoctoral trainees. The postdoctoral applicant will collaborate closely with the bioinformatics team at the Englander Institute for Precision Medicine ( https://eipm.weill.cornell.edu/)
