WHO WE ARE
reSeARChOMA (research in SARCOMA) Group a multidisciplinary translational team composed by Clinicians and Researchers of Humanitas Research Hospital and Humanitas University devoted to research in Sarcoma. We address a broad set of questions related to predictive markers, pharmacogenomics, and therapy response. Humanitas grants access to state-of-the-art research and top-notch support core facilities and attracts talented international scientists from across the world.
We are committed to study sarcoma microenvironment (SME) and its interaction with tumor cells to develop – and to clinically validate – a predictive and prognostic score, combining artificial Intelligence and high throughput techniques. The project will require the application of state-of-the-art statistical and machine learning approaches, image analysis skills and their further development to address the unique complexities of the data.
The applicant is expected to:
- Have a PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or in related disciplines (such as Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, Mathematical biology);
- Have excellent communication, organizational and writing skills in English;
- Be motivated and independent, while being able to interact effectively with other members of the team.
- Statistical modeling and machine learning (Stan or PyMC3 or similar);
- Programming (R or Python).
- Digital image analysis;
- Causal Inference.
We offer you a financial support for at least 3 years. You will be assisted in applying for personal fellowships during this time (Marie-Curie, HFSP, EMBO, National funding organizations). You will access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and core computing and experimental facilities in a vibrant,
world-class research environment operating at an international level. Dedicated training programs available through Humanitas University to broaden your expertise and enhance your skill set. You will find a stimulating and international research environment, a strong and dynamic network of international collaborators and – as part of the reSeARChOMA Group – you will benefit from established collaborations and access to centralized facilities with expertise in genomics cell biology, proteomics, cutting-edge microscopy, structural biology, technology development, and bioinformatics.
