*** the list date or deadline for this position has passed. ***

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 July 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 to be scheduled in the range of the last week of February to the first week of March, 2020 (Exact date to be updated).

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.
