Postdoctoral Fellow – Mathematical oncology and cellular immunotherapy

The Evolutionary Dynamics group, headed by Dr. Philipp Altrock at the Department of Integrated Mathematical Oncology, is seeking to hire a postdoctoral fellow to complement an interdisciplinary research team at Moffitt Cancer Center. Our projects offer unique opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations at the forefront of finding new cancer cures. We currently work on single-cell methods to characterize and model cancer progression, on tumor ecology, and on models of cellular immunotherapy—all based on clinical data.

Position Highlights: • Perform basic and applied research, applying mathematical, statistical and computational methods to cancer biology and clinical data • Advance the toolbox of mathematical oncology, quantitative medicine and epidemiology • Establish and strengthen collaboration in a multidisciplinary research setting to improve predictive models for patient specific cancer detection and treatment.

The Ideal Candidate: • Experience in team science, work in interdisciplinary contexts • Proven ability of independent research (via publications) • Strong communication skills (national/international research presentations/posters) • Mastery of at least one high-level (scientific) programming language (C, R, Mathematica, matlab, Julia, python) • Ability and desitre to interact and collaborate with clinician scientists

Responsibilities: • Communicate clearly and openly, present research results on local and national platforms • Perform independent research • Meet with team leader and members frequently • Build relationships across research disciplines to promote a collaborative research environment

Credentials and Qualifications: • PhD degree PhD in mathematics, computer science or physics with an interest in biology and medicine, or in biology or bioengineering with a focus in quantitative modeling. • One first author paper • Experience with scientific programming, data analyses and data visualization • Experience in applying mathematical modeling applied to biological and/or clinical questions, or similarly applied scientific contexts Our Department of Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) consists of 8 internationally renowned cancer researchers and mathematical modelers. The focus of all IMO research groups is to apply physical, mathematical and computational principles to cancer biology, to decipher mechanisms of tumor growth, treatment and progression. Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, in Tampa, is Florida’s largest cancer center, located on the campus of the University of South Florida, near beautiful beaches in the Gulf of Mexico. How to Apply: Interested applicants should include a single PDF file that includes a cover letter summarizing their research training and accomplishments, a personal statement of scientific interests and goals, current CV with recent publications, and contact information for three references for Dr. Philipp Altrock to review, philipp.altrock@moffitt.org.
