Located in Boston and the surrounding communities, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a leader in life changing breakthroughs in cancer research and patient care. We are united in our mission of conquering cancer, HIV/AIDS and related diseases. We strive to create an inclusive, diverse, and equitable environment where we provide compassionate and comprehensive care to patients of all backgrounds, and design programs to promote public health particularly among high-risk and underserved populations. We conduct groundbreaking research that advances treatment, we educate tomorrow's physician/researchers, and we work with amazing partners, including other Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals.

This is a full-remote position in the Gabuzda lab with the option to come on-site.


Bioinformatics scientists work closely with wet lab scientists to generate, analyze, and interpret large-scale datasets using various analytical and computational tools for data analysis and integration, network prediction, pathway analysis, and machine learning. Ideal candidates will have a strong background in relevant areas of biology, medical science, statistics, bioinformatics, modeling, and writing manuscripts for publication. 


M.D., Ph.D., or M.S. in molecular biology, virology, immunology, medical science, biostatistics, computational biology, or bioinformatics. The candidate should have experience with cell and molecular biology, clinical data, biostatistics, bioinformatics, and computational modeling and be fluent in English with excellent writing skills. Experience analyzing RNAseq, flow cytometry, proteomics, metabolomics, and extracellular vesicles/exosome data is desirable but not required.

At Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, we work every day to create an innovative, caring, and inclusive environment where every patient, family, and staff member feels they belong.  As relentless as we are in our mission to reduce the burden of cancer for all, we are equally committed to diversifying our faculty and staff.  Cancer knows no boundaries and when it comes to hiring the most dedicated and diverse professionals, neither do we. If working in this kind of organization inspires you, we encourage you to apply.
