Harvard University seeks applicants in the life sciences for appointment as a John Harvard Distinguished Science Fellow.

The Fellow will be housed in the Northwest Science Building and affiliated with one of the Life Science departments in FAS. The environment is an intensively collaborative, interdisciplinary center, where scientists from a wide variety of backgrounds study cellular pathways and networks, with the goal of finding general principles underlying the structure, behavior and evolution of cells and organisms.

The program seeks to appoint researchers who have completed a PhD within twelve months of their appointment, and aims to give fellows the opportunity to pursue their own independent research agenda. This fellow appointment will be for a three-year term, with the expectation that it will be extended by two years after review.

This appointment is expected to begin on or after October 31, 2019.
