Independent Theory Fellows at Harvard Medical School

The Department for Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School is recruiting independent fellows with strong backgrounds in the mathematical sciences, including pure or applied mathematics, statistics and theoretical physics. Fellows will be supported for two years and will be at the core of a new theory initiative including 4-6 fellows and several sabbatical visitors as well as many existing students, postdocs and faculty. The purpose is to create an intellectually vigorous community for using mathematics to understand biology, whether theorem-driven approaches to understand core principles or computationally driven analyses of experimental data. This community will be supported by many joint activities, including regular talks, dinners, workshops and mini-courses. Fellows are encouraged to work with faculty in any department of HMS, as well as build bridges to other schools at Harvard. Applications are considered at any time and should include a CV, a brief research description including both previous and proposed work, and the names and e-mail addresses of three references for letters of support.

Applications from women and minority candidates are particularly encouraged. Harvard Medical School is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
