A new lab at the Center for Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School (HMS) is looking for a postdoctoral fellow with a strong background in microfludicis as applied to cellular assays. The researcher will be tasked with developing and applying custom microfluidic designs for genome-wide analysis of gene expression, epigenetic marks and other genomic properties of single cells and small samples. The projects will aim to elucidate epigenetic and regulatory alterations associated with pathological conditions in complex mammalian tissues. The researcher will have an opportunity to work in close cooperation with the experimental collaborators expert in the models, assays, and pathologies being investigated. Similarly, the researcher will be able to draw on the computational expertise of the lab for integrative analysis of genomic data.
For details please see:
- Excellent expertise in developing microfluidic devices for cellular assays.
- Strong interest in conducting collaborative research on regulation of mammalian tissues at a molecular level.
- Interest in next-generation sequencing assays.
- PhD degree in Engineering, Biophysics, or a related discipline.
- Track record of publications in peer-reviewed journals.
