Independent Fellow in Quantitative Biology

Independent Fellow in Quantitative Biology

We are looking for independent postdoctoral fellow to work at the interface between the life and mathematical sciences as part of Harvard’s Initiative in Quantitative Biology and its NSF/Simons Center for the Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Biology.

Funds from the Simons Foundation will support the fellow for three years. If their work is theoretical or computational, fellows can work fully independently, whereas if their work has an experimental component it will be located in the labs of one of the 21 faculty who are associated with the grant. We are especially interested in those whose graduate training is in mathematics and statistics and are interested in applying their knowledge and creativity to biological problems. This position will be funded for 3 years. The program seeks to appoint a researcher who have completed a Ph.D. within 18 months of their appointment. The appointment is expected to begin on or after January 1, 2020. We are accepting applications until August 9th, 2019. 

A short list of candidates will be invited to present their work at a symposium and interview on October 8 and 9, 2019.

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 conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.
