Postdoctoral Fellowship in Visualization for Biology at Harvard University

The Visual Computing Group (VCG) in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University seeks motivated postdoctoral fellows with a Ph.D. in computer science/engineering, bioinformatics, or a related field to work on varied research projects in visual data analysis. Potential candidates should possess a strong background in the fields of visualization and visual analytics, bioinformatics or similar areas to conduct visualization projects applied to biological and biochemical data. In addition to working closely with scientists, industry partners, and graduate students on research projects, the candidate is expected to actively participate in writing grant proposals.

Candidates should have a substantial publication history (preferred venues are IEEE InfoVis, IEEE VAST, BioVis, Bioinformatics, Nature Methods, and BMC Bioinformatics), a good standing in the research community, as well as good teamwork and communication skills. Ideally, the candidate also has strong software development experience, especially for web-based applications. Competitive salary and benefits are included. The position is available immediately.
