Independent Fellows in Quantitative Biology

We are looking for independent postdoctoral fellows 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. These positions will be funded for 3 years. The program seeks to appoint researchers who have completed a Ph.D. within 18 months of their appointment. The appointment is expected to begin on or after December 1, 2018. We are accepting applications until September 21st, 2018. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a research proposal (up to 5 pages), a summary of previous research accomplishments (up to 2 pages), and PDFs of up to three publications. During the application process, you will be asked to give the names and e-mail addresses of at least three referees who will be asked by a system-generated email to upload a letter of recommendation once the candidate’s application has been submitted. Three letters of recommendation are required, and the application is considered complete only when at least three letters have been received. A short list of candidates will be invited to present their work at a symposium and interview on October 29 and 30, 2018. Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged. Harvard University is 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, or any other characteristic protected by law.

To apply, please submit your application through Harvard's academic positions portal at http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/8345.
