Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Mechanistic Mathematical Modeling of Human Disease Processes with Clinical Data

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Higgins, John

Date Posted: 2017-08-18

Description: A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of John Higgins, MD, jointly located at the Harvard Medical School Department of Systems Biology and the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Systems Biology and Department of Pathology.

Requirements: Qualified applicants will have extensive knowledge of and interest in human pathophysiology, dynamical systems, numerical methods, and good software engineering practices. For example, strong candidates would be able to compare and contrast the following: hemostasis and thrombosis, ODE and PDE, lymphocyte and myelocyte, quicksort and bubble sort. Applicants should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree or be in their final year of their doctoral studies, and at least a strong undergraduate background in math, computer science, and engineering. Interested individuals should include an updated CV, complete contact information for three references, and a cover letter describing past research experience, career goals, and future research interests.


Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Multiscale Network Biology

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Miller, Miles

Date Posted: 2017-08-10

Description: The Center for Systems Biology (csb.mgh.harvard.edu) has an immediate opening for a position within the Multiscale Network Biology Program, https://csb.mgh.harvard.edu/miller. The Center for Systems Biology is located within the Simches Research building on the main MGH campus, and features a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment with close interactions with MGH clinician-researchers and investigators across Harvard and MIT. We offer excellent training opportunities in a young, dynamic and highly collaborative research environment including chemistry, chemical biology, molecular biology, systems biology, imaging and cancer research. All interested applicants should submit a CV and two letters of reference to Serena Sullivan (sullivan.serena@mgh.harvard.edu). 

Responsibilities: The candidate will be trained in advanced network analysis and image processing techniques including in vivo microscopy, image segmentation and morphometry, systems pharmacology, and multivariate analysis of large datasets.

Requirements: PhD is preferred but we will consider candidates with a MS and experience. A strong background in computational modeling and excellent command of spoken and written English are essential. Prior experience in cancer cell biology is a plus.


Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Molecular profiling of cancer cells and microscopy

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Weissleder, Ralph

Date Posted: 2017-04-14

Description: The labs of Ralph Weissleder and Hakho Lee in the Center for Systems Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School invite applications for Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions. One or two positions are available in molecular profiling of cancer cells (see Sci Transl Med. 2014;6(219):219ra9). The ideal candidate should have a background in microfluidics, optics (microscopy), protein/DNA diagnostics, and cell biology, with expertise in system implementation and benchwork. The Center (csb.mgh.harvard.edu) has a diverse faculty with backgrounds in engineering, chemistry, biology, physics, and medicine, and offers a lively and supportive environment in which to perform interdisciplinary science.

Responsibilities: We seek creative thinkers who take risks in defining and addressing important problems, and who use quantitative experimental, computational and/or theoretical approaches in their work. Research fellows are encouraged to write their own grants, following the training period, to launch their independent research.

Requirements: A Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D. and permanent residency is required. To apply, please send your CV, a summary of your most significant research accomplishments (300 words) and the email addresses of three references to: Serena Sullivan (Sullivan.Serena@mgh.harvard.edu), CSB, Simches Research Center, 185 Cambridge Street, Suite 5.210, Boston, MA 02114.


Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Iron biology, molecular and cellular biology, animal models, genetics, biochemistry

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Babitt, Jodie

Date Posted: 2016-12-14

Description: A Postdoctoral Fellow is sought to work in the Program in Membrane Biology/Division of Nephrology/Center for Systems Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital. The goal of our research program is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in iron homeostasis and to develop new therapeutic strategies to treat iron disorders such as anemia of chronic disease, thalassemia, and hemochromatosis. We employ a multidisciplinary approach including molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and animal models.

Requirements: Candidates for this position must have an M.D. or Ph.D (or equivalent) in the biomedical sciences. Successful applicants will have an experimental background in molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, and animal studies, a strong publication record, and excellent communication/interpersonal skills. Please email a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information of three references to Babitt.jodie@mgh.harvard.edu.
