The Channing Division of Network Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) seeks to recruit one or two junior faculty in the area of systems biology and network medicine to expand this new program by working with existing faculty who have expertise in statistics, bioinformatics, epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, network approaches, and genomics of complex human diseases. Expertise in computational biology is required. Appointment at Harvard Medical School (HMS) is expected at an academic rank of Assistant Professor.
Channing is the home of the ongoing Nurses’ Health Study, with 35 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 300,000 individuals. The Division has its own freezer storage system and extensive computer resources. The Division seeks junior faculty applicants looking to build their own research programs that will, at least in part, leverage the extensive study of populations, biological samples, and genetic/genomic data that currently exist at the Division.
Applicants should send a letter detailing their interest and CV to the Chair of the Search Committee (Professor Scott T. Weiss) by January 1, 2014.
