Job Detail

Research Fellow in Biomedical Informatics, Maha Farhat Lab
Harvard Medical School, Department of Biomedical Informatics
United States-Massachusetts

Postdoctoral Fellow in infectious disease genomics.

Pathogens display a remarkable range of variability in phenotypes relevant to disease including transmissibility, organ tropism, and antibiotic resistance. Elucidating the biological mechanisms for these differences is a fundamental question in the study of infectious diseases and creates new avenues for surveillance, diagnosis and personalized treatment. The heritability of disease phenotypes within pathogen species and their evolution over generations indicates that they should be genetically encoded. As a result, the study of pathogen whole genome sequence (WGS) data is expected to further our understanding of these traits.
