The Cancer Evolution Lab (, PI: Christopher McFarland) at Case Western University is recruiting a postdoctoral scholar. 

Our group uses quantitative in silico and in vivo modeling to understand cancer progression and drug resistance. Ongoing projects include: (i) pharmacogenomic profiling of radiation and immunotherapy in lung adenocarcinoma, (ii) time series analysis of the ecological and evolutionary forces acting on cancer-causing mutations, (iii) use of fitness landscape theory to predict epistasis patterns in cancer, and (iv) characterization of dormant tumor genotypes and their effects on tissue homeostasis. The successful applicant will lead an allied project, or propose a project, that aligns with the lab’s strengths using integrative experimental and computational techniques. Collaborations with outside groups are welcome.
