Postdoc Positions at UCSF

Open Postdoctoral positions at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), in the laboratory of David Quigley. The Quigley laboratory is part of the Department of Urology at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine and the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. We are a member of the UCSF Prostate Cancer Program, a highly collaborative scientific environment with a strong record of translational research excellence. Our lab studies how genomic and epigenomic alterations affect tumor biology and patient outcomes. We have a particular interest in understanding how tumors develop resistance to targeted therapy.  Current research directions in the lab include: Recent projects used large-scale genome sequencing to identify non-coding DNA structural variants associated with therapy resistance in advanced prostate cancer (Quigley Cell 2018) and a novel prostate cancer epigenomic disease subtype (Zhao Nature Genetics 2020).  

Job Requirements: 

We are seeking an independent and highly motivated candidate with a Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g. Genetics, Cell Biology, Biostatistics, or Bioinformatics). Candidates should have a sound grasp of genetics and statistics. Proficiency in either R or Python and prior experience analyzing genome sequence data to extract biological insights are essential. Preference will be given to candidates who have published at least one original article as a first author and have excellent written and spoken English skills. Candidates trained primarily as experimental researchers who meet these criteria are highly encouraged to apply.
