    Join Meromit Singer’s group to advance our knowledge of the immune system’s regulatory role in cancer and autoimmunity!

    We are seeking talented, innovative and enthusiastic individuals to join us in our mission to unravel immune regulation and potential in disease via computational and experimental techniques. Our work involves the development and application of computational machine learning frameworks to high-throughput datasets generated in our lab (e.g. single-cell transcriptomics), followed by experimental validations. We work on clinical samples and various mouse models, advancing basic immunology and improving clinical diagnostics and therapy design. We collaborate closely with mouse immunologists and clinical oncologists to generate rich datasets tailored to cutting-edge questions and for functional validations of our findings. Our main interest is in elucidating the immune system’s functional roles and dysregulation in cancer and autoimmune diseases.

     

    Our lab is part of the new interdisciplinary Center for Information Biology (cBio Center) at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) and the Harvard Medical School (HMS). We are located within the Longwood campus in Boston.

    Responsibilities

    • A PhD or equivalent in computational biology, statistics, computer science, or a similar field. Candidates holding a degree in biological/medical science are also welcome to apply if they have extensive background in computational or statistical work.  
    • Lead author of at least one publication in major peer-reviewed scientific journals.
    • A genuine love for science and people.
