Overview

Post-doctoral or Master’s level position available at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School for a highly motivated, hard-working, independent individual in computational biology.  The successful candidate will develop and apply computational solutions for integrative analysis of gene expression, RNAseq, and ChIPseq data, to gain mechanistic insights into the effect of drug treatment in altering the transcription factor activities, epigenetic patterns, and pathway activities in mammalian cells. He/she should be able to work simultaneously on multiple projects, involving a diverse and interdisciplinary team of scientists across laboratories. The position will be jointly co-mentored by Dr Rani George (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute) and Dr Karen Adelman (Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology). 

 

Responsibilities

The successful candidate will develop and apply computational solutions for integrative analysis of gene expression, RNAseq, and ChIPseq data, to gain mechanistic insights into the effect of drug treatment in altering the transcription factor activities, epigenetic patterns, and pathway activities in mammalian cells
