Application Deadline

The Scott Lab is seeking highly motivated MSc and/or PhD students to work on the genomics of mature B-cell lymphomas. Principal Investigator Dr. David Scott is a renowned clinician scientist who has led international collaborations to improve classification and understanding of lymphomas. Our group has generated sequencing data from thousands of patient samples across many lymphoma types that are ready to be analyzed and published. Ongoing projects in the lab are going beyond traditional omics to deepen our understanding of aggressive lymphomas through single-cell multi-omics, long-read Oxford Nanopore sequencing and DNA methylation analyses, and spatial imaging and sequencing technologies, working at the cutting edge of translational cancer research. We are generously funded through organizations such as the Terry Fox Research Institute, Genome BC, BC Cancer Foundation, Lymphoma Research Foundation, and the NIH. 

As part of the Centre for Lymphoid Cancer, the Scott Lab collaborates closely with many clinicians and scientists with diverse research programs. Trainees are involved in all stages of their project, including planning, development, and collaboration.  All trainees have opportunities to present in internal seminar series and are encouraged to attend and present at international conferences. Students will enrol in the UBC Pathology and Laboratory Medicine or Interdisciplinary Oncology (IOP) graduate programs. 

The ideal candidate would have demonstrated experience and/or aptitude in bioinformatics, genomics, and statistics. Experience programming in R and/or Python would be an asset but not required. Interested applicants should send a cover letter and CV to: 

lhilton@bccrc.ca and dscott8@bccancer.bc.ca

This is an ongoing posting and applications are welcome any time.
