Boston Children’s Hospital Postdoctoral Fellow: The Flynn Lab is located in the Stem Cell Program at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) and the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology (HSCRB) in the Harvard University Harvard Medical School. Our lab is interested in uncovering novel mechanisms that governs how RNA controls fundamental biological processes in biology, with a special focus on human disease mechanisms.
Lab interests: We take an RNA-centric approach to understanding fundamental and disease-related mechanisms of how biology operates. Models of cancer and stem cells are used for the majority of our work looking into the genetic, biochemical, and molecular features of how RNA acts as a regulatory molecule. In particular we are focused on a few broad topics:
RNA glycosylation: We recently discovered that mammalian cells robustly incorporate metabolic reporters that specifically label glycans into cellular RNA. Through a series of experiments, we determined that small, conserved, noncoding RNAs are selectively modified with glycans which look like N-glycans on proteins. A significant amount of exciting work is now possible, including technology development of novel tools to assay and purify glycoRNAs, uncovering the scope of glycoRNAs across species, and understanding where glycoRNAs functionally operate in cells. We see this as a new functional domain for RNA, and a direct interface between RNA and glycobiology.
Host-viral interactions: As a pathogen, RNA can cause significant disease, as most recently shown with SARS-CoV-2 and the associated COVID-19 disease. We have successfully leveraged RNA-centric technologies to better understand the host networks viral genomes physically hijack during infection. There are ongoing efforts to expand these data sets as well as develop novel tools to explore this interface.
Looking for: Candidates will have deep experience in wet-lab, dry-lab, or a combination of the two. Prior knowledge in molecular, cell, or chemical biology will be helpful, however new learning and deeper development in those fields within the lab is welcome for those who are independently motivated and have a passion for science.
Location and Affiliations: Our lab is physically located in the Karp Family Research Building at the center of the Longwood Medical Campus in Boston. We are an affiliate member in the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI)and a member of the Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center. For additional information on research Interests: www.rafrna.com

Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center - The Training in Oncology Population Sciences (TOPS) T32 program provides advanced education to physicians and/or scientists for the purpose of conducting research at the T3 and T4 interface to translate knowledge from the lab into practice and population health to reduce the burden of cancer. TOPS is part of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center.
The need for translational research at the T3 and T4 interface stems from persistent disparities in cancer outcomes and implementation gaps between what is possible in the context of clinical trials and what happens in routine practice. The TOPS Program provides a focused educational experience each year in collaboration with more than 40 faculty from across the 7 institutions of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC). TOPS fellows may select a mentor from any Harvard University affiliated faculty or school. TOPS program leaders will help applicants navigate these choices based on their interests and career objectives. Co-mentorship arrangements with faculty at MIT, Tufts, BU, U. Mass, Brandeis and other area faculty are also feasible.
The program will provide researchers who may also be clinicians (physicians, nurses, pharmacists) with the skills necessary to effectively address the challenges and opportunities brought about by the tremendous growth in the complexity of cancer care, precision medicine, electronic health records, mobile health, machine learning and data sharing.
The TOPS program has 3 specific strategies to achieve this overarching objective:
Training in core methods and skills necessary for investigation through coursework and participation in regular seminars, workshops and reading;
Intensive focus on a research project with close supervision from one or more mentors; and,
Training in professional skills that are prerequisite for investigation including project development, grant writing, presentation, building and working with diverse teams, running a dry-laboratory and the responsible conduct of research.
TOPS is most often a two-year program for participants, but may be shorter. The TOPS Program focuses exclusively on T3/T4, population sciences, and health services research.
TOPS Program participants will receive a stipend, tuition for coursework, a travel allowance, and a budget for research-related expenses.
TOPS participants are required to participate in all 3 components of the program: (1) Mentored research experience, (2) Didactic learning and coursework, including the Harvard Chan School of Public Health's Summer Program in Clinical Effectiveness, and (3) Professional development, including participating in the TOPS seminar series.
Academic rank of Research Fellow or Instructor at Harvard Medical School will be commensurate with experience, training, and academic achievements.  Instructors are required to provide and document a minimum of 50 hours of teaching of Harvard learners per year.
Application deadline is: 1/8/2021

The Hormoz Lab at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School seeks highly motivated and dedicated postdoctoral fellows. The Hormoz Lab uses systems and synthetic biology to understand cellular state transitions during development, directed differentiation, and in disease. We also develop technologies to measure molecular states of individual cells with high throughput. For example, we have recently engineered mice with molecular recorders that write each cell's lineage history in its own genome.
We seek both theorists and experimentalists. If you have a background in machine learning, statistics, or physics and have a desire to learn biology, you would be a great candidate. Similarly, experimental biologists who are interested in learning quantitative skills and technology development are encouraged to apply. We particularly seek candidates who are interested in developmental biology and directed differentiation for medical applications, such as making blood stem cells in a dish. Related projects include recording and read out of lineage histories of individual stem cells in mice and that of cancer cells in patients. Successful candidates should have strong communication skills and be able to work independently and collaboratively on scientific and engineering problems and deliver solutions.
Please email Sahand Hormoz (sahand_hormoz@hms.harvard.edu) directly. Please briefly describe your research interests, attach a CV, and list three references. (posted 10.15.20)
