Areas of Interest: Epigenetic Regulation, Cancer, Genomic Analysis, Computational Biology.
Job Description: A laboratory at the Center for Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School (HMS) is looking for a postdoctoral Research Associate interested in computational analysis of epigenetic mechanisms disrupted in cancer and other disease tissues. The Research Associate 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 several experimental laboratories, providing an excellent opportunity for collaborative research.
- Hands-on experience with DNA or RNA sequencing assays
- Good understanding of the basic statistical techniques
- A strong interest in conducting collaborative research on the topics outlined above
- Track record of publications in peer-reviewed journals
- PhD degree in Molecular Biology, Computational Biology, or a related discipline.
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, soon to be Department of Biomedical Informatics, promotes development and application of computational and informatics techniques in collaboration with 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 PhD 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.
