Job Description: A laboratory at the Center for Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School (HMS) is looking for a postdoctoral Research Associate to conduct both bench-side and computational analysis of epigenetic state as part of a new Center of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) NIH initiative on neuropsychiatric disorders. The Research Associate will be responsible for developing and applying novel chromatin analysis assays to examine regulatory differences in patient-derived cell lines and other disease models. The Research Associate will also contribute to the integrative computational analysis of the resulted data. The project will provide an excellent opportunity to collaborate with a number of prominent labs that are taking part in the CEGS initiative.
- A strong interest in conducting collaborative research on the topics outlined above
- PhD degree in Molecular Biology, Computational Biology, or a related discipline.
- Hands-on experience with DNA or RNA sequencing assays
- Experience in computational analysis of genomic data
- 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: Center for Biomedical Informatics promotes and facilitates collaborative activities in biomedical informatics among researchers at HMS and its affiliated institutions. Its core faculty members conduct research at the intersection of biomedicine and information sciences, including bioinformatics, functional genomics, translational medicine, and clinical knowledge management. The center also hosts the Bioinformatics & Integrative Genomics program (a graduate training program, sponsored by NHGRI) and the Biomedical Informatics Research Training program (a consortium of informatics laboratories at Harvard and MIT, sponsored by NLM).
Harvard Medical School is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
