I am hiring postdoctoral fellows in biomedical informatics and data visualization. Multiple positions are available immediately in my lab in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School.

Nils GehlenborgI am an Assistant Professor in the new Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School. I completed my postdoctoral training as a Research Associate in the Park Lab at the Center for Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School. I received my PhD from the University of Cambridge and was a predoctoral fellow at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).

My long-term goal is to develop computational tools that enable data-driven biomedical research, with a focus on visualization and exploration of genomics and epigenomics data. Currently, I am researching and developing novel tools to visualize heterogeneous data from large-scale cancer genomics studies, integration of visual and computational approaches to support sense-making in biology, and software to support reproducible research in epigenomics and genomics. My research is funded by NIH/NHGRI, the NIH Common Fund, and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute.

I am a co-founder and former General Chair of BioVis, the IEEE Symposium on Biological Data Visualization, and co-founder of VIZBI, the annual Workshop on Visualizing Biological Data. In the past, I served in various leadership roles in the ISCB Student Council of the International Society for Computational Biology and on the Board of Directors of the ISCB. Occasionally, I contribute to the Points of View data visualization column in Nature Methods.
