The Haber Lab in the Department of Environmental Health at Harvard University has openings for highly motivated postdocs to develop and apply novel computational approaches for next generation sequencing data analysis, particularly single-cell RNA sequencing, spatial transcriptomics, and related approaches. Our research group uses single-cell genomics to study immunity at mucosal sites, with a focus on the lungs and particularly mechanisms of asthma. Past work has focused on discovering new cell types in the lungs (Nature, 2018), single-cell genomics of the small intestine (Nature, 2017), and using single-cell methods to describe how the mucosal immune system regulates epithelial stem cells (Cell, 2018). The successful candidate(s) will join an interdisciplinary team spanning several institutions, including the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Projects in the lab aim to discover new aspects of lung physiology in health and disease using computational and systems biology approaches to analysis of single-cell RNA-sequencing data. These datasets derive from samples of human lungs, and also from mouse models of airway injury, inflammation and regeneration, and aim in particular to examine the impact of environmental exposures – such as air pollution, and allergens – on the lungs’ airways. The successful candidate will collaborate closely with clinical pulmonologists and immunologists to study the molecular mechanisms that underly airway tissue homeostasis and asthma pathogenesis. In addition, our group aims to develop new computational algorithms to examine cellular communication between the lungs and the local immune system, define pathways that are aberrant in disease, and discover new possible therapies. Fellows will be encouraged to take advantage of the rich and varied training and career development opportunities offered at HSPH.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in biochemical mechanisms of mitochondrial metabolite transport

We are looking for highly motivated individuals with a background in in vitro biochemistry, structural biology and/or biophysics to join our multi-disciplinary international team. The strong focus on molecular and mechanistic research in metabolism, cell biology and age-related diseases in the Department and the general excellence of biomedical research in the area provide an ideal environment for postdoctoral training with relevance to human health and disease. https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/molecular-metabolism/ Research in the Kory lab focuses on the role of organelles in metabolic compartmentalization and regulation. Our current work centers on mitochondria, critical organelles in metabolism generating both energy and precursors for biosynthesis. Beyond their metabolic roles, mitochondria are being recognized as important signaling hubs and mitochondrial dysfunction has been associated with major diseases including cancer, diabetes, and neurodegeneration. For mitochondria to function properly metabolites must be efficiently exchanged with the rest of the cell in a regulated manner. While metabolites can diffuse through pores in the outer membrane, the inner mitochondrial membrane is impermeable to most metabolites and separates two chemically contrasting environments. The Kory lab takes multi-faceted approaches including biochemistry, structural biology, functional genomics, metabolite profiling, imaging and mouse models to determine how mitochondria achieve efficient metabolite exchange and conversion while maintaining the unique chemical environment of the mitochondrial matrix. Ultimately, we hope our research in understanding mitochondrial metabolite transport in humans will contribute to progress in the treatment of diseases with deregulated metabolism such as cancer and diabetes.

The postdoctoral fellow would support Drs. Lipsitch and Hanage labs at the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics (ccdd.hsph.harvard.edu) leading work to extend our understanding of the role of negative frequency-dependent selection in Streptococcus pneumoniae (see below).  The postdoctoral research fellow will lead work to extend our understanding of the role of negative frequency-dependent selection in Streptococcus pneumoniae. This concept that Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus) population structure is determined by a process of negative frequency-dependent selection on the accessory genome has been supported by both cross sectional and longitudinal comparisons, with the advent of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines providing a strong perturbation to test the hypothesis (1, 2). Many questions persist about the generality of this phenomenon, the mechanism by which it operates, the genes involved, and so forth. The postdoctoral research fellow will lead work to devise and apply approaches to answer these remaining questions with the scientific goal of understanding the mechanism, and the public health goal of improving predictions of evolutionary trajectories.  This work will be with Drs.

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.
