We are looking for independent postdoctoral fellows to work at the interface between the life and mathematical sciences as part of Harvard’s Initiative in Quantitative Biology and its NSF/Simons Center for the Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Biology.
Funds from the Simons Foundation will support the fellow for three years. If their work is theoretical or computational, fellows can work fully independently, whereas if their work has an experimental component it will be located in the labs of one of the 21 faculty who are associated with the grant. We are especially interested in those whose graduate training is in mathematics and statistics and are interested in applying their knowledge and creativity to biological problems. These positions will be funded for 3 years. The program seeks to appoint researchers who have completed a Ph.D. within 18 months of their appointment. The appointment is expected to begin on or after January 1, 2020. We are accepting applications until August 9th, 2019.
A short list of candidates will be invited to present their work at a symposium and interview on October 8 and 9, 2019.
Ph.D. (preferably in mathematics/statistics) obtained within the last 18 months.
Finalist will be required to attend a two day symposium and interview, October 8-9, 2019
Application Deadline: 4 Aug 2019
Company Name: Harvard University
Company Profile: Harvard University Archives The Harvard University Archives are maintained by the Harvard University Library system and are a great resource to access Harvard’s historical records. The Harvard Shield On Sept. 8, 1836, at Harvard’s Bicentennial celebration, it was announced that President Josiah Quincy had found the first rough sketch of the College arms – a shield with the Latin motto “VERITAS” (“Verity” or “Truth”) on three books – while researching his History of Harvard University in the College Archives. During the Bicentennial, a white banner atop a large tent in the Yard publicly displayed this design for the first time. Veritas original sketch Until Quincy’s discovery, the hand-drawn sketch (from records of an Overseers meeting on Jan. 6, 1644) had been filed away and forgotten. It became the basis of the seal officially adopted by the Corporation in 1843 and still informs the version used today. Why Crimson? Crimson was officially designated as Harvard’s color by a vote of the Harvard Corporation in 1910. But why crimson? A pair of rowers, Charles W. Eliot, Class of 1853, and Benjamin W. Crowninshield, Class of 1858, provided crimson scarves to their teammates so that spectators could differentiate Harvard’s crew team from other teams during a regatta in 1858. Eliot became Harvard’s 21st president in 1869 and served until 1909; the Corporation vote to make the color of Eliot’s bandannas the official color came soon after he stepped down. But before the official vote by the Harvard Corporation, students’ color of choice had at one point wavered between crimson and magenta – probably because the idea of using colors to represent universities was still new in the latter part of the 19th century. Pushed by popular debate to decide, Harvard undergraduates held a plebiscite on May 6, 1875, on the University’s color, and crimson won by a wide margin. The student newspaper – which had been called The Magenta – changed its name with the very next issue. U.S. Presidents and Honorary Degrees After George Washington’s Continental Army forced the British to leave Boston in March 1776, the Harvard Corporation and Overseers voted on April 3, 1776, to confer an honorary degree upon the general, who accepted it that very day (probably at his Cambridge headquarters in Craigie House). Washington next visited Harvard in 1789, as the first U.S. president.
