Research Operations Manager


Postdoc, Center for Cancer Evolution

Postdoctoral Fellows will assist the Associate Director for Scientific Operations to develop and fulfill the scientific mission of the Center for Cancer Evolution (CCE). The principal mission of the CCE is to develop and validate mathematical modeling strategies of tumor evolution and treatment response, and eventually utilize these strategies to identify best therapeutic intervention. We will investigate the treatment response of cancer cells and their microenvironment, develop novel mathematical frameworks describing the evolutionary dynamics of tumor progression and treatment response that are parameterized using the experimental systems, and predict and validate optimum intervention strategies that will ultimately be implemented as prospective clinical trials. The CCE is looking for highly motivated and qualified Postdoctoral Fellows to investigate tumor evolution using and creating mathematical models of tumor evolution and drug resistance in order to further the understanding of cancer evolution.  A more comprehensive list of responsibilities and required qualifications is available upon request.

Scientist I - Clinical Genomics
The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) seeks a Research Scientist, Clinical Genomics, to join our team and help us improve the interpretation and usage of genomic data in clinical practice. This is an essential role for extending precision medicine and improving the accessibility and utilization of clinical cancer sequencing.

  • Support the clinical application of cancer genomic testing through variant review, curation, and quality control.
  • Review scientific literature and public databases to interpret the functional impact of cancer variants and provide concise summaries.
  • Review patient-specific precision cancer medicine reports and summarize findings with support from disease experts.
  • Prioritize complex cases for discussion and lead an interdisciplinary meeting to review these complex reports.
  • Create and manage database(s) to tracking precision medicine reports and clinical outcomes (e.g. within a REDCap database), to ultimately track patient outcomes and measure impact of precision medicine reports.
  • Potential opportunity to write a manuscript based on this initiative.
  • Establish guidelines and workflows to integrate this initiative with other efforts at DFCI.
