    Postdoctoral Fellow

    The Flannick Lab in the Division of Genetics and Genomics at Boston Children’s Hospital, the Department of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, and the Program in Medical and Population Genetics at the Broad Institute, is seeking exceptional candidates for postdoctoral fellowships focused on computational and statistical genetics methods development and/or next-generation sequencing and high-throughput genomic data analysis.

    The Flannick Lab develops computational approaches to use human genetic and broader genomic data to understand or better treat human diseases, with a current focus on diabetes. Our research lies at the intersection of computer science, statistical genetics, and computational biology, and it includes the development of fundamental statistical methods and computational algorithms, large-scale exome sequence association analysis, and computational disease modeling. We play leadership roles in high-profile international consortia focused on aggregating and analyzing >50,000 exome sequences for type 2 diabetes (T2D-GENES), developing a platform to mine large-scale genetic datasets and make results openly available through public knowledge portals (AMP-T2D), and connecting disparate biomedical data types to bridge the gap between basic and translational science (the Biomedical Translator). Projects meeting any level of ambition are available to motivated postdocs.

    The ideal candidate will be passionate about learning and developing cutting-edge techniques in the burgeoning field of “big data” genomic data science and be motivated to publish research that significantly impacts how genetics is used by biologists and pharmaceutical researchers to understand or treat diabetes. Applicants must have a PhD in a quantitative field and experience with data analysis and programming/scripting; prior knowledge of computational biology or genetics is a plus but not required.

    The Flannick Lab has office space in both the Longwood Medical Area of Boston and the Kendall Square area of Cambridge, perhaps the most densely concentrated biomedical research communities in the world. Over 6,000 MDs or PhDs work as part of the Harvard Medical system in the Longwood Area alone, and the Broad Institute in Cambridge serves as a hub for the Harvard and MIT biomedical communities. These resources provide an unparalleled opportunity for a motivated postdoc to scientifically grow and achieve high impact science, set alongside all of the cultural and natural benefits of the broader Boston metropolitan area.

    Interested individuals are encouraged to submit a cover letter, CV, list of publications, and brief statement of research interests to Dr. Jason Flannick (flannick@broadinstitute.org). For more information, see http://flannick.org.
