The laboratory of Professor Xiaole Shirley Liu (http://liulab.dfci.harvard.edu/) at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard T.H.Chan School of Public Health invites applicants for a computational biology postdoctoral position. The research in the laboratory focuses on designing bioinformatics algorithms and integrative genomics approaches to model gene regulation, find novel drug targets and combinations, and predict response to targeted and immunotherapies in cancer. Recently Dr. Liu became the PI of the NCI Cancer Immunologic Data Commons (CIDC) Center to develop the bioinformatics algorithms and infrastructure to integrate comprehensive profiling of all NCI-sponsored immunoncology trials, with the goal of predicting cancer immunotherapy outcomes.
A representative list of recent projects and publications (with Liu Lab as major contributors) include:
In the last decade, 16 trainees from the Liu Lab started tenure track faculty positions, including one Thousand Talents (青千China), two K99 (NIH) and three CPRIT (Texas) awardees.
