Post-Doctoral Fellows in Systems Genetics and Genomics

Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH)

Boston, MA, United States

The Channing Division of Network Medicine (CDNM) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School is looking for exceptional candidates for our NIH T32 postdoctoral fellowship in computational biology, Network Medicine, and systems genetics and genomics of lung diseases.

Our group has led some of the largest and most comprehensive epidemiologic, genetic, and multi-omic studies in lung diseases, including identifying novel genetic and genomic associations and performing functional studies to identify new disease pathways. The fellowship research will be done under the mentorship of faculty at CDNM who have expertise in network medicine, statistics, bioinformatics, epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, molecular biology, and Omics of complex human lung diseases. CDNM is the home of multiple respiratory disease studies, which include DNA samples and multi-Omics data from more than 100,000 individuals. CDNM also has extensive computer resources for supporting large-scale bioinformatics analyses.

Brigham and Women’s Hospital is a Harvard Medical School affiliated institution, with over 1000 principal investigators. The Channing Division of Network Medicine is a research division within the Department of Medicine whose goal is to define the etiology and reclassify complex disease using network- and systems-based approaches. This group includes some of the largest population-based and pulmonary cohorts in the world, and an outstanding track record of mentoring.

In order to be eligible for support by the CDNM T32 grant, the post-doctoral fellow must be a US Citizen or green-card holder. We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related condition or any other characteristic protected by law.

Any offer of employment is contingent upon satisfactory completion of the above requirements for employment.

Reference information, including academic and/or employment records, final evaluations and recommendations for future employment will be required.

Applicants optimally will have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. with some experience with epidemiologic and statistical data analysis. Strong quantitative skills and practical experience working with large scale datasets and applying epidemiologic tools are a plus. A stated interest in computational biology, systems genetics, and/or Omics research, is essential.

Starting date: July 1, 2021.

Duration: The post-doctoral fellow will be funded for up to three years.
