(15) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Biomedical Control

The aims of this Army-funded study are identifying, validating and characterizing blood-based diagnostic biomarkers for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Harvard is part of a collaborative consortium of researchers that includes NYUUCSF, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, the Institute for Systems Biology, and the Army Center for Environmental Health Research. At Harvard, the team continues to work on (i) optimizing the panel of heterogeneous (multi-omics) markers for diagnosing PTSD, (ii) identifying dysregulated subnetworks that are related to glucocorticoid receptor regulation and Fc epsilon R1 signaling in PTSD based on changes in DNA methylation patterns, (iii) constructing, validating and characterizing polygenic risk profiles for PTSD, and (iv) identifying mechanisms underlying metabolic dysfunction in PTSD with a network based mathematical modeling using correlational and causal analysis. In the next phase of the project, in addition to refinement and further validation of these results on larger independent cohorts, we aim to characterize their properties by investigating the impact of comorbidity, demographic factors, and symptom severity range on biomarker performance. We also plan to enhance and refine (for example, by focusing on subsets of features or updating parameters) the panels as necessary with the ultimate goal of building a robust PTSD diagnostic biomarker panel.

About Harvard University, USA – Official Website

Harvard University is a private Ivy League research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Established in 1636 and named for its first benefactor, clergyman John Harvard, Harvard is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States and among the most prestigious in the world.

The Massachusetts colonial legislature, the General Court, authorized Harvard’s founding. In its early years, Harvard College primarily trained Congregational and Unitarian clergy, although it has never been formally affiliated with any denomination. Its curriculum and student body were gradually secularized during the 18th century, and by the 19th century, Harvard had emerged as the central cultural establishment among the Boston elite. Following the American Civil War, President Charles William Eliot’s long tenure (1869–1909) transformed the college and affiliated professional schools into a modern research university; Harvard became a founding member of the Association of American Universities in 1900. James B. Conant led the university through the Great Depression and World War II; he liberalized admissions after the war.

The university is composed of ten academic faculties plus the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. Arts and Sciences offers study in a wide range of academic disciplines for undergraduates and for graduates, while the other faculties offer only graduate degrees, mostly professional. Harvard has three main campuses: the 209-acre (85 ha) Cambridge campus centered on Harvard Yard; an adjoining campus immediately across the Charles River in the Allston neighborhood of Boston; and the medical campus in Boston’s Longwood Medical Area. Harvard’s endowment is valued at $41.9 billion, making it the largest of any academic institution. Endowment income helps enable the undergraduate college to admit students regardless of financial need and provide generous financial aid with no loans.[ The Harvard Library is the world’s largest academic library system, comprising 79 individual libraries holding about 20.4 million items.

Harvard has more alumni, faculty, and researchers who have won Nobel Prizes (161) and Fields Medals (18) than any other university in the world and more alumni who have been members of the U.S. Congress, MacArthur Fellows, Rhodes Scholars (375), and Marshall Scholars (255) than any other university in the United States. Its alumni also include eight U.S. presidents and 188 living billionaires, the most of any university. Fourteen Turing Award laureates have been Harvard affiliates. Students and alumni have also won 10 Academy Awards, 48 Pulitzer Prizes, and 108 Olympic medals (46 gold), and they have founded many notable companies.
