Postdoctoral Fellow using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to characterize the microenvironment of human tumors

Harvard Medical School seeks to recruit an outstanding postdoc to apply methods developed for the analysis of geographic and ecological features in GIS (Geographic Information Systems) to the understanding of human cancers.Human tumors are complex ecosystems involving cancer and immune cells as well as supporting tissues and vasculature in a complex three-dimensional tissue. This will involve applying geospatial analytics, spatial and spatiotemporal statistics, environmental image processing, and ecosystem modeling techniques to human tumor images collected using very recently developed methods. This is a joint appointment between the Harvard University Center for Geographic Analysis (CGA) and the Harvard Medical School Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology (LSP).


HiTS Senior Finance Administrator

HiTS is hiring a Senior Finance Administrator (SFA) to join the HiTS Administrative team. The Admin team’s mission is to provide the HiTS community with exceptional human resource, finance, and administration services while ensuring compliance with all applicable federal, sponsor, and University guidelines. The SFA will lead the HiTS pre and post award responsibilities as well as manage their own assigned portfolio of sponsored research funding and other accounts. The SFA will manage two Grant Managers. Will serve as the lead all HiTS sponsored research administration matters. May act as the research unit representative at the School/University level and provide technical advice and problem resolution for HiTS on research administration.


Fellowship for Innovative Single-Cell Discovery Platform for Women’s Cancers

The Harvard Medical School (HMS) Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology (LSP) and Women’s Cancer Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) seeks an outstanding postdoctoral fellow who will use innovative single-cell methods to study mechanisms of immunotherapy response and resistance in patient tumors.  The fellow will be based in the laboratories of Dr. Peter Sorger at HMS and Dr. Beth Mittendorf at DFCI, where he/she will routinely interact with physicians, basic scientists and computational biologists to conduct high impact translational research.  The fellow’s research efforts will directly inform the design of novel clinical trials of immunotherapy for breast and ovarian cancer.


Research Pathologist for Innovative Single-Cell Discovery Platform for Women’s Cancers

The Harvard Medical School (HMS) Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology (LSP) and Women’s Cancer Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) seeks an outstanding Research Pathologist who will use innovative single-cell methods to study mechanisms of immunotherapy response and resistance in patient tumors.  The Pathologist will be based in the laboratories of Dr. Peter Sorger at HMS and Dr. Beth Mittendorf at DFCI, and will work closely with Dr. Sandro Santagata at Brigham and Women’s Hospital where he/she will routinely interact with physicians, basic scientists and computational biologists to conduct high impact translational research.  The fellow’s research efforts will directly inform the design of novel clinical trials of immunotherapy for breast and ovarian cancer.


Senior Research Assistant for CyCIF Technology

The LSP engages bioinformatic and biomedical scientists across Boston to develop innovative approaches for interpretation, visualization and distribution of scientific discoveries. The LSP is a multi-disciplinary effort within HiTS: Harvard Program in Therapeutic Science (http://hits.harvard.edu) to reinvent the fundamental science underlying the development of new medicines and their use in individual patients. The LSP’s CyCIF technology (www.cycif.orf) generates highly multiplexed immunofluorescence images, up to 60-plex, of a wide range of human/mouse tumors and tissues. We have a highly collaborative inter-disciplinary team of data scientists, pathologists, oncologists, and basic scientists that work closely together on an initiative in quantitative pathology focused on building tumor atlases as part of the NCI sponsored Human Tumor Atlas Network.


Software Engineer for Web Application Development

We seek a software engineer for a project funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) that aims to revolutionize how cancers are diagnosed and analyzed by building on-line cancer atlases that combine high dimensional image and genomic data. The work is conducted as part of a multi-institution national initiative and all software we release is open source. The project involves scientists and engineers in diverse disciplines based at Harvard, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, MIT, and the Broad Institute, providing a unique opportunity to participate in world-class research that impacts human health and security. More information about the project and an early version of a data browser on which the cancer atlas is being built can be found at https://www.cycif.org/ ; GitHub repositories and scientific publications are referenced at this site


Data Scientist for Scientific Visualization via Web Applications

The software developer will work on projects funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that seek to fundamentally change how pre-clinical and translational research data are collected, analyzed and published. The work is part of several multi-institution research initiatives and all software we release is open source. The project involves LSP scientists and clinicians based at Harvard and MIT and provides a unique opportunity to participate in world-class research impacting human health and security. In addition to new projects, the developer will assist in improving data visualization and exploration sites previously developed in the LSP, for example www.grcalculator.org, www.cancerbrowser.org, and www.smallmoleculesuite.org.


Lead Software Engineer in Cloud-based Data Management and Processing
