The Tumor Genomics Research Group at the University of Helsinki’s Faculty of Medicine, is one of the largest biomedical research groups in Finland with a 30-member research team, including biologists, computer scientists and medical doctors. The group focuses on understanding the causes and mechanisms of tumorigenesis, particularly in uterine leiomyoma and colorectal cancer. Here, researchers are given the opportunity to work in an internationally acclaimed research environment and good working atmosphere. We are currently seeking outstanding candidates for a post-doctoral researcher and graduate student positions. The open positions are in the fields of cancer genetics, systems biology and bioinformatics research. Closing date for applications is 30.11.2017.

Two postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Dhvanit Shah Laboratory at the Division of Hematology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) & Harvard Medical School (HMS), Boston MA, United States. The position is open until filled and the deadline to apply is December 1, 2017.
