Work with us on:

    • Perturbation biology and network pharmacology
    • Cancer genomics and proteomics and metabolomics
    • Protein structure, function & evolution
    • Biological information resources

    Join a highly interactive team of postdocs, graduate students and software engineers. Work on algorithms and computational analysis, and/or on combination therapy and evolution experiments in the wet lab. Collaborate with others and lead a project. Check your predictions against experiment. Do imaginative basic science and help apply it in real life.


    You have a PhD or equivalent in biology, medicine, mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry or engineering. Your appointment will be in the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at DFCI or the Department of Cell Biology at HMS. Send CV, bibliography, brief statement of research interests and names of 3 references to cbio.jobs{at}jimmy.harvard.edu. Then pack your bags and spend a few years doing productive research in computational and systems biology in the silicon valley of the life sciences: Boston, Massachusetts.
