This symposium is a seminar series for presenting, learning, and discussing quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) and systems biology (SB) topics. The goal of this event is to foster an active community of industry and academic participants interested in these topics, and create a forum for sharing our successes and challenges.
DATE: Tuesday February 9, 2016 TIME: 6:00 PM LOCATION: Fred Rosen Conference Room Modell 100A
200 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA 02115

Bioinformatician in Functional Genomics at Harvard Medical School
We are seeking a PhD-level bioinformatician with experience in functional genomics analysis and software development to provide informatics support for research projects using functional genomic and proteomic strategies (in particular CRISPR/Cas9, RNAi and mass spec) and to help establish and coordinate a new Bioinformatics Working Group at Harvard Medical School. The bioinformatician will (a) perform and/or train researchers to do gene-set enrichment, pathway analysis and network analyses of high-throughput functional genomics and proteomics datasets; (b) help with design of CRISPR short guide RNAs (sgRNAs) and CRISPR projects; (c) refine graphic user interfaces (GUIs) for existing online tools developed at HMS relating to functional genomics analysis, and co-develop new tools; (d) refine existing GUIs related to CRISPR-Cas9 technologies and co-develop new ones; and(e) establish regular meetings of the HMS Bioinformatics Working Group to foster communication, coordination and collaboration among the various groups that support bioinformatics at HMS, and to coordinate with bioinformatics resources at Harvard affiliate institutions.
Requirements: Ph.D in a life science field; previous experience in bioinformatics such as functional genomics data analysis; familiarity with public bioinformatics resources and tools; understanding of basic statistics; good understanding and practical experience in data management tools and applications; proficiency in a programming language such as Java, Perl or Python; excellent written and oral communication skills; strong organizational and interpersonal skills.
The Harvard Therapeutics Graduate Program application is due on November 1st 2014. All G1 and G2 students from any HILS program are eligible.
Applicants will be interviewed in November and students will be notified of acceptance to the program in early December 2014.
