Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Metabolism

October 18, 2011 § Leave a comment

Opportunity: A postdoctoral fellowship in computational biology is currently available in Vamsi Mootha’s research group in Harvard’s Department of Systems Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Broad Institute.  The goal of the project is to combine comparative genome sequence analysis, transcriptional profiles, and metabolic flux profiles to gain mechanistic insights into the evolutionary origins and diversity of energy metabolism.  We hope to exploit the findings to understand the metabolic basis of common human diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and neurodegeneration.

Qualifications: The ideal applicant will have a strong background in multivariate statistics, comparative genomics, and phylogenomic inference. Coursework/experience in biochemistry or metabolism is preferable. The successful fellow will enjoy working in a team‐based setting with biochemists, microbial geneticists, chemical biologists, and clinicians. A strong publication record and excellent communication skills are a must. A PhD is preferred but not required.

How to apply: Please send a cover letter and CV directly to Vamsi Mootha (vamsi AT
