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. Our group is 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 enroll 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 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

Canadian citizens and permanent residents are eligible to begin their studies in September 2022 if applications are completed by August 7. International students will be considered for enrollment beginning in January 2023.
