The Channing Division of Network Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School is seeking a postdoctoral fellow who is driven to understand how variation in molecular pathways influences the progression and treatment outcomes of asthma and other respiratory diseases. This position is available immediately in the research group of Dr. Amber Dahlin. The candidate will have the opportunity to interact with a highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary research community, who are committed to understanding the etiology of complex diseases, within the Channing Division of Network Medicine, the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Mass General Brigham HealthCare system in Boston.
The Channing Division of Network Medicine encourages applications from highly motivated, analytically astute postdoctoral fellows pursuing a research career in personalized medicine. The research supported by this fellowship is focused on investigating the genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying asthma severity and responsiveness to corticosteroid treatment. This position entails applying bioinformatics methodology toward analyzing multi-‘omics’ data based within several well-established longitudinal cohorts of children and adults, and performing statistical analyses including association studies of multi-‘omics’ data with clinical phenotypes and related risk factors. The fellow will be expected to communicate their research through writing and publication of co-authored manuscripts and scientific abstracts, participating in seminars and lectures, and presenting at national and international meetings. We are seeking individuals with a strong work ethic and excellent communication skills who capably work well independently as well as within in a diverse research team. Women, minorities, veterans, people with disabilities, and individuals from under-represented groups or disadvantaged backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital is a Harvard Medical School affiliated institution, with over 1000 principal investigators. The Channing Division of Network Medicine is a research division within the Department of Medicine whose goal is to define the etiology and reclassify complex disease using network- and systems-based approaches. This group includes some of the largest population-based and pulmonary cohorts in the world, and an outstanding track record of mentoring.
We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related condition or any other characteristic protected by law.
