Postdoctoral Research Associate
The role of the gut microbiome in drug metabolism and nutrition

Harvard Center for Systems Biology

We are always looking for talented post-doctoral fellows interested in working in an interdisciplinary research group that is developing and applying new metagenomic methods for analyzing the community structure, gene content, and transcriptional activity of the human gut microbiome. A major focus is on understanding how the microbiota and microbiome participate in the metabolism of various xenobiotics, including orally ingested drugs, and the impact of these activities on health, disease risk and therapeutic efficacy. Ideally, the candidate should have a PhD and research interests in comparative genomics, microbiology, computational biology, statistics, and/or biological chemistry/pharmacology.

Applicants should send their CV and brief statement of research interest to:
