The mission of CMO Computational Sciences (CCS) is to innovate new computational science that accelerates discovery in, and the practice of, molecular-driven cancer medicine. This team of experienced computational biologists catalyze institution-wide collaborative science in translational genomics. Projects focus on immunogenomics, correlative genomics in early-phase clinical trials, evolutionary analysis of disease, mutant allele discovery and validation, disease-specific and pan-cancer studies, precision disease model genomics, novel methods development, the interface of inherited and somatic genetics, the development of complex genetic signatures, and new prognostic and therapeutic biomarkers.
Do you want to join an innovative team and contribute to cancer research? Are you creative and interested in solving meaningful problems? Then join us here at MSK, where we can provide you with the opportunity to make a difference with your career. We believe that this is an outstanding role for someone who has the background to be a part of our dynamic team and who wants to apply their skills to support our mission here.
