Research Fellow - Hormoz Lab

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Boston, MA

The Hormoz Lab at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School ( seeks highly motivated and dedicated postdoctoral fellows. The Hormoz Lab uses systems and synthetic biology to understand cellular state transitions during development, directed differentiation, and in disease. We also develop technologies to measure molecular states of individual cells with high throughput. For example, we have recently engineered mice with molecular recorders that write each cell's lineage history in its own genome.


We seek both theorists and experimentalists. If you have a background in machine learning, statistics, or physics and have a desire to learn biology, you would be a great candidate. Similarly, experimental biologists who are interested in learning quantitative skills and technology development are encouraged to apply. We particularly seek candidates who are interested in developmental biology and directed differentiation for medical applications, such as making blood stem cells in a dish. Related projects include recording and read out of lineage histories of individual stem cells in mice and that of cancer cells in patients. Successful candidates should have strong communication skills and be able to work independently and collaboratively on scientific and engineering problems and deliver solutions.

Please include a CV and cover letter briefly describing your research interests and list three references.
