Biomarker Research and Drug Policy Positions for Postdoctoral Fellow and Staff Scientist
The Biomarker Research Consortium at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School is inviting applications for a postdoctoral or staff scientist position from applicants with a research interest in biomarker science, pharmacogenomics, or drug development and policy.
The Biomarker Research Consortium is part of the Program on Regulation, Therapeutics, and Law (PORTAL), a research center with Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics of the Department of Medicine at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The Consortium will assess specific biomarker-outcome relationships in a variety of clinical conditions, and will produce tools and meta-analyses that facilitate the safe and reliable application of medication-related biomarkers in research, regulation, and health care.
The applicant will work closely with Division faculty members, in particular Aaron S. Kesselheim, M.D., J.D., M.P.H. and Spencer Phillips Hey, Ph.D. Responsibilities will include designing and implementing systematic reviews and meta-analyses of published biomarker studies and the relationship of specific biomarkers to clinical events, and evaluating their implications drug development, regulation, and use.

Review of applications will proceed on a rolling basis and will continue until the positions are filled. Applications should include a cover letter describing research interests and their relevance to biomarker science and regulation, a CV, and a writing sample.
Applications should be sent electronically to:
