Job tasks
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate to join our group in Computational Cancer Biology. 

Single-cell RNA/TCR-Seq is revolutionizing our understanding of immune cell types in clinically relevant situations such as tumors. The research project will focus on analyzing single-cell RNA and TCR sequencing data from tumor infiltrating T cells. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on both in house and publicly available data. He/she will be expected to use and develop computational tools for single-cell gene expression profile, TCR reconstruction and TCR sequence analyses.

Together with several experimental collaborators, we are located in the new Agora building, which crystallizes efforts in translational cancer research and is the main link between fundamental onco-immunology at UNIL and clinical immunotherapy at the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV). In addition, Lausanne offers one of the best translational research environments in the field of cancer immunotherapy with several world-renowned Institutes (Ludwig Institute for Cancer research at UNIL, ISREC at EPFL, Oncology Department at CHUV) and cutting-edge computational infrastructures (Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics).

Starting date is flexible.

Profile requirements
PhD in Computational Biology, Math, Physics or Computer science with demonstrated experience in Bioinformatics and at least one first-author research paper in a peer-reviewed journal. Experience with gene expression analysis and machine learning algorithms in computational immunology is a plus.
The candidate should have a strong interest in cancer and immunology-related research and excellent collaborative skills with experimental biologists. Good knowledge in algorithmic developments and programming, as well as the ability to work in English (oral + written) are required.
