The Psychiatric and Neurodevelopmental Genetics Unit and the Precision Medicine Research Unit in the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Center for Genomic Medicine has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow position encompassing big data analytics, precision medicine, and psychiatric genomics. Our program is conducting studies aimed at the development and clinical translation of novel approaches to risk prediction and genomic medicine using high-dimensional data to advance precision psychiatry. Our research leverages large-scale data resources including electronic health records, genomics, neuroimaging, and behavioral data across the spectrum of neuropsychiatric disorders (e.g. autism, ADHD, psychotic, mood and anxiety disorders, PTSD) and related phenotypes (e.g. suicide, treatment response, brain imaging). Our highly collaborative and dynamic research environment includes leading scientists, clinicians, and trainees at MGH, the Broad institute, Partners Healthcare, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Mentorship, training, and career development opportunities span precision and genomic medicine, neuropsychiatric genetics, and population health. We seek a highly motivated and dedicated MD or PhD with strong training in biomedical informatics, biostatistics, predictive analytics, machine learning/AI, computer science, applied mathematics, and/or statistical genetics with outstanding quantitative skills, proven ability to work well in a collaborative environment, fluency with all modes of communication in English, and strong writing skills.
To apply, please send a single email containing your CV and a short statement describing your qualifications for this position to firstname.lastname@example.org
Partners Training Program in Precision Medicine
We are pleased to announce the call for applications for the Partners Healthcare Training Program (T32) in Precision & Genomic Medicine. The training program is co-led by Jordan W. Smoller, MD, ScD and Heidi Rehm, PhD and supported by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). Our faculty comprise a broad range of leading scientists affiliated with the Partners Healthcare System (including Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital), Partners Personalized Medicine, Boston Children’s Hospital, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
We seek talented applicants with a commitment to training in the diverse domains of precision and genomic medicine, including medical genetics and genomics, data science, molecular medicine, and implementation science. We are accepting applications for postdoctoral fellows to begin July 1, 2020
The training program brings together three outstanding components for a world-class training program in precision and genomic medicine: 1) an internationally-recognized faculty with expertise in precision and genomic medicine across a broad range of disciplines, 2) outstanding institutional resources bridging clinical, genomic, and data sciences, and 3) deep engagement with cutting edge, collaborative initiatives at the regional, national, and international levels to provide rich training experiences.
Funding is for 2-years and awards cover salary, travel to professional meetings, and other training-related expenses.
Any questions about the T32 program or eligibility can be directed to the Program Manager, Carol Whooley CWHOOLEY1@mgh.harvard.edu
All application materials are due Friday, March 6, 2020 by 5pm ET USA
Notification of awards will be made by April 1, 2020
