The Cancer Dependency Map Project (DepMap), launched by the Broad Institute’s Cancer Program, aims to systematically identify the genetic and chemical vulnerabilities across human cancers. Using a host of new technologies like CRISPR-based gene editing, pooled drug screening, and next-generation sequencing, we have deeply characterized over a thousand different cancer models and produced some of the largest cancer datasets in the world, which are now being widely used to identify new vulnerabilities in this devastating disease.
DepMap is a collaborative effort involving teams from across the Broad Institute, including the Cancer Data Science and Target Discovery and Advancement teams. Whether you are a software engineer, bench biologist, or project manager by trade, there are many ways you can help us drive advances in precision oncology. See below for our current openings and how you can apply to join the Cancer Dependency Map team!
The Cancer Dependency Map (DepMap) is looking for a business analyst to work with leadership to assess and fulfill data analytics needs, data management, system integrations and overall process improvements. The successful candidate will join a fast-paced multidisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in functional genomics, single-cell technologies, computational analysis of large-scale data, cancer biology, and translational investigation. High proficiency with SQL and database management is required and experience with laboratory management systems/LIMS is preferred.
Associate Computational Biologist
Cancer Data Science (CDS)
Cancer Data Science is looking for computational associates with a B.S. degree and strong data science skills to help advance our understanding of cancer. Our early career scientists help produce datasets used by tens of thousands of researchers, interrogate cancer biology, develop new packages, tools, and algorithms, contribute to groundbreaking publications, and have opportunities to work under renowned scientists. If you would like to join us, please specify that you are interested in working with CDS when applying. Researchers with some post-baccalaureate work experience may be eligible to start at a higher level.
