CNIO – Spanish National Cancer Research Center, Madrid

A postdoctoral position is available for a project aimed at integrating omics and non-genetic
information, as well as clinical imaging data for pancreatic cancer within a European funded project.
The Group is seeking a recent and motivated Ph.D. with relevant publications and experience in
molecular/omics epidemiology.

The GMEG is interested in the genetic&molecular epidemiology of pancreatic, bladder and breast
cancers through integrative approaches. We apply innovative methodology to both hypothesisdriven
and agnostic/exploratory analyses to integrate several levels of information, including omicsand
image-derived data.

The position involves work on the studies related to a European funded project including genomics,
radiomics, and pathomics. In collaboration with other investigators, the postholder will take
responsibilities in the project management, conducting statistical analysis of complex data, reporting
results in scientific meetings and manuscripts, preparing grant applications, and supervising PhD
students. Contributions to multiple related publications and development of new research ideas are
