Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

Harvard Medical School
Department of Biomedical Informatics
United States Massachusetts Boston


Applications are invited for multiple postdoctoral positions in the laboratory of Prof. Peter Park at Harvard Medical School. The long-term goal of the laboratory is to develop and apply innovative computational methods to contribute to our understanding of cancer genetics, neuroscience, and epigenetics. Current areas of interest include structural variation analysis for whole-genome sequencing data, analysis of single cell sequencing data, and development of a genome analysis platform for clinical samples. For more information about the lab, please see

The successful candidate will join a group of supportive and productive computational biologists in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and have an opportunity to collaborate with world-class biologists in the Harvard medical area. Recent fellows from the lab have gone to faculty positions at top institutions in Boston, Cambridge (UK), Chicago, and Milan.


An ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in computational biology/bioinformatics/computer science or another quantitative field, as well as excellent programming and communication skills. Substantial experience in analysis of high-throughput sequencing data is highly desirable. We are particularly interested in hiring at least one fellow with a rigorous statistics background. Those with an outstanding record in a quantitative field without significant exposure to biology may also be considered.
