A laboratory at the newly-formed Department of Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School (HMS)
Job Description: A laboratory at the newly-formed Department of Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School (HMS) is looking for a postdoctoral fellow interested in computational analysis of epigenetic mechanisms disrupted in cancer and other disease-disrupted tissues. The fellow will be responsible for developing and applying statistical and computational methods for integrative analysis of genome-wide epigenetic, transcriptional and proteomic data, aiming to identify specific factors and molecular mechanisms underlying misregulation of the epigenetic states. The projects are being conducted in close cooperation with the bench-side laboratories, providing an excellent opportunity for collaborative research.
Hands-on experience with modern sequencing assays
Good understanding of the relevant statistical techniques
A strong interest in conducting collaborative research on the topics outlined above
Track record of publications in peer-reviewed journals
How to apply: Please send cover letter, curriculum vitae and contact information for at least two references to Dr. Peter Kharchenko at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be considered until the position is filled.
Employer: Department of Biomedical Informatics has been recently formed at the Harvard Medical School to lead development of computational and informatics techniques to address pertinent challenges in modern biological sciences and medicine. The Department’s faculty conduct research at the intersection of biomedicine and information sciences, including bioinformatics, functional genomics, translational medicine, and clinical knowledge management. The Department also hosts the Bioinformatics & Integrative Genomics PhD program (sponsored by NHGRI) and the Biomedical Informatics Masters program.
Harvard Medical School is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
