Harvard University - Single Cell Core Scientific Director

Harvard Medical School (HMS) and the Department of Systems Biology established the Single Cell Core (SCC) facility for single cell technology in July of 2016. The mission of the SCC is to facilitate breakthrough discoveries at HMS by enabling the design and execution of single cell genomics assays. The SCC is seeking a Scientific Director with expert knowledge in single cell sequencing to provide critical expertise needed for bringing additional state-of-the-art protocols to the SCC and the HMS community.

Single cell sequencing is proving to be an incredibly powerful tool for addressing a broad range of biological questions, from basic developmental biology to disease phenotyping and pathway discovery. There are still relatively few labs with deep expertise in single cell ‘omics analysis, yet there is huge demand. The SCC serves as a focal point of single cell expertise for HMS and the surrounding biomedical community, providing assistance with the design, optimization, execution, and analysis of single cell experiments.

The Scientific Director position is an excellent opportunity for scientists wishing to explore a career path in developing single cell sequencing technology and work creatively with users to design and execute their experiments. The SCC is now in its 4th year of operation servicing over 80 labs in the greater Boston area. The SCC is one of the only cores offering scRNA-seq as an open-access fee for service facility. The current platforms used at the SCC are the microfluidic droplet-based methods both inDrops and 10x Genomics.
