single-cell transcriptomic spatial analyses immuno-oncology


We are seeking a highly motivated and scientifically driven computational biologist/bioinformatician. The

candidate will bring his/her expertise to contribute to the team objective in identifying key immune surveillance

pathways operating in tumors using a unique strategy, based on the team advanced expertise on DC subsets,

combining single-cell transcriptomic and spatial analyses of innate immune cells at preneoplastic stages in

breast and colon environment.

Using both human tissue samples and spontaneous sporadic mouse tumor models, the team has generated

datasets along 2 axes:

- Deep single-cell RNA-sequencing of innate immune (DC, M, neutrophils, NK) and epithelial/stromal cell

compartments comparing normal, preneoplastic lesions and established tumors in order to define cell

trajectories during tumor progression and identify specific pathways activated at preneoplastic stage and

contributing to prevention of tumor development.

- Tissue localization of each innate immune cell population and identification of its neighbors by deep in situ

multi-IF spatial analysis with the aim to define the spatio-temporal crosstalk between innate and

epithelial/stromal cells.

The successful candidate will take the lead to integrate these 2 approaches through deep machine-learning

techniques representing a breakthrough strategy to pinpoint key cell/cell interactions and immune surveillance

pathways activated at early stage and interrupted in advanced tumors.
