We are hiring a post-doc!

Interested in a post-doc fellowship position at Harvard, contributing to NSRR?

A postdoctoral fellow position is available working in a joint program between the Program for Epidemiology in the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders and Program in Psychiatric Genetics in the Department of Psychiatry at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School to advance studies of the association of sleep, cognition, blood pressure and vascular disease. We are seeking a highly motivated scientist with interests in the following areas:

  • Signal analysis -generating new predictive metrics from data within the sleep study, and ability to harmonize data across multiple cohorts to create platforms for “big data” analyses.
  • Using sleep and other data to model epidemiological associations, predicting longitudinal cognitive and brain imaging markers. Modelling may> include assessment of potential influences of genetic background and mediation by cardiovascular disease as well as new methods for analysis of 24-hour blood pressure measurements and advanced physiological signals from overnight sleep records.

The ideal candidate will hold a PhD in computational biology, physiology, epidemiology, neuroscience, or computer science. The candidate will be able to point to prior work that shows strong computational skills, and ideally, experience with signal processing and time series data. The fellow will work with a team with biomedical engineering, biostatistical, epidemiological, cardiovascular, and clinical expertise to apply advanced tools for quantifying multiple metrics of sleep across the night and over time, for analyzing 24-hour blood pressure profiles, and relating various sleep exposures to vascular disease and cognitive outcomes and brain imaging data. Opportunities to participate in multi-center research consortia. Salary and fringe benefits commensurate with experience will be provided in compliance with approved NIH standards. Individuals with a strong publication record and training in quantitative methods and experience with modelling clinical or physiological data are especially encouraged to apply.

Interested candidates should send a personal statement with research interest, three potential references and Curriculum Vitae to Dr. Shaun Purcell (smpurcell@bwh.harvard.edu) and Dr. Susan Redline (sredline@bwh.harvard.edu).

We are 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, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.
