Faculty Position in Microbiomics Channing Division of Network Medicine Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School


The Channing Division of Network Medicine (CDNM) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital seeks to recruit a new faculty member in the area of microbiomics to help build our research program in this area, who has expertise in statistics, bioinformatics, epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, and network science approaches to complex human diseases. CDNM hosts the ongoing Nurses’ Health Study, with 40 years of follow-up and repeated detailed information on diet and lifestyle from 120,000 women. From this and many other cohorts, we have DNA samples from more than 200,000 individuals. The Division has its own freezer storage system and extensive computer resources.

The Division seeks junior faculty applicants to build their own research programs in microbiomics that will, at least in part, leverage the extensive study populations, biological samples, and genetic/genomic data available within the Division. The new faculty will develop collaborations with existing faculty who have expertise in statistics, bioinformatics, epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, and genomics of complex human diseases. Expertise in computational biology is preferred. The successful candidate will engage in teaching students and post-doctoral fellows. Academic appointment as Instructor or Assistant Professor rank at Harvard Medical School will be commensurate with the applicant’s experience. Secondary appointment at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health will also be considered for appropriate applicants.
