The FAS Center for Systems Biology at Harvard is interested in hosting Early Independence Awardees in the Bauer Fellows program. Bauer Fellows develop new experimental techniques, apply existing and novel techniques to interesting biological problems, and develop new analytical and theoretical tools for converting genome-wide data into knowledge about biology. They come from a variety of backgrounds, including biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. Because we strongly believe that the search for broad biological principles requires a combination of experiment, theory and computation, we are particularly interested in recruiting Fellows with broad scientific interests and a taste for collaboration. Like other Bauer Fellows, the successful Early Independence Awardee will be fully immersed in the scientific community of the fellows’ program, and will profit from its proven mentoring structure and the Center’s outstanding facilities and shared equipment. Candidates need to be within 1 year of receiving their terminal doctoral degree on January 30 2013.
Please submit a curriculum vitae, a research proposal including a summary of previous research accomplishments (up to 6 pages), PDFs of up to 3 publications and the names of three references to
All documents, including reference letters, must be received by Oct 10 2012. Please allow at least 1 week for your referees to upload their letters.
A university committee will interview suitable candidates and select applicant(s) for Harvard’s Early Independence Award nomination. Candidate(s) who secure the Harvard nomination will apply through Harvard for the Early Independence Award in January 2013, and start their fellowship, if awarded, as early as fall 2013.
