I am seeking motivated researchers and students to join my lab,
computational pathology at the ICR, as postdocs or summer internship
students. These are exciting opportunities to apply and further develop
skills and experience in image analysis, statistics and bioinformatics for
cancer research. Please see
yuanlab.org for
the details of individual positions.

My
lab develops multidisciplinary approaches to study cancer from a novel
perspective: as evolving ecosystems. High-throughput image analysis of
pathological samples, machine learning and statistics enable us to
map how 
different cancers
grow and spread 
amidst healthy
tissue 
with unprecedented detail.

Combined with
these technological advances, ecological principles will then help us
understand why cancer is so difficult to treat – by studying not only
cancer cells but also normal cells around them – 
and discover new ways to target these
diseases,
 akin to draining the swamps to get rid of mosquitoes
as one way of eradicating malaria. 

Qualification
in computer science, statistics, ecology or other quantitative disciplines is
usually required. Good programming skills, preferably in R, Matlab, Python or
C, and experience in image analysis, machine learning or statistics are
essential. 

You will
join a team of computer scientists, physicists, and mathematician
s, working closely with
clinicians in the vibrant centre of cancer research discovery and
therapeutics at ICR London in the endeavour 
to cure cancer.
