The Navin Laboratory at MD Anderson Cancer Center is a cancer genomics and computational biology research lab. Our laboratory has pioneered the development of single cell sequencing technologies. We apply these tools to study complex biological processes that occur in human cancers including transformation, clonal evolution, invasion, metastasis and chemoresistance evolution. These processes have previously been difficult to study with genomic technologies using bulk tissues.


The ideal candidate will have experience with programming/scripting languages such as R, Python and Perl. Additionally, Linux server administration and data management experience are preferred.
