The Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School ( invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor. Founded in 2015, the Department consists of 16 core faculty members working in diverse areas of biomedical informatics and offers unparalleled opportunities for collaborative research with investigators in basic science departments at Harvard as well as with clinicians at Harvard-affiliated hospitals.

The Department is interested in candidates engaged in bioinformatics and computational genomics research. As analysis of genomic and other high-throughput data has become an essential component of modern biology, we seek candidates who are interested in developing new modeling approaches and computational techniques for such analysis and applying them to important problems in basic biology and medicine. Areas of interest include functional genomics, epigenomics, single cell analysis, spatial omics, statistical genetics, and cancer and medical genetics. Those who are interested primarily in AI/ML or clinical informatics may consider applying to the other departmental search.

We seek candidates who will be leaders in their respective fields and share our vision for transforming biomedical science. Candidates must have a proven quantitative background and must demonstrate substantial innovation and methodological rigor in their approach to scientific inquiry in biomedicine or in the translation of computational methods to engineering/software applications in medicine.


Applicants must have a doctoral degree (PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) and strong evidence of contributions to their field; postdoctoral experience is strongly preferred. All faculty are expected to contribute substantively to our educational programs through teaching and mentorship.
