We are recruiting for positions starting in or after January 2018! See this page to learn more about ongoing research in the lab. In brief, we develop and apply new methods (computational and experimental) to address fundamental questions about the human microbiome, with a focus on the strain and whole-genome levels.

If you are interested in joining the laboratory as a postdoc, please email Tami (tami@mit.edu) with your CV, a copy a first-author publication, and a description of your scientific and training goals. While no particular experience is required, candidates with computational training and/or expertise in microbial genetics, microbial genomics, microbial physiology, or synthetic biology are encouraged to apply. The right candidate may or may not have a specific project in mind.

If you are interested in joining as a graduate student, apply to one of the many relevant PhD programs at MIT, which include Computational and Systems Biology, Microbiology, HST Medical Engineering and Medical Physics, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Biological Engineering, and Biology.

If you are interested in being the lab manager (research associate) for an exciting microbiome lab, including working with robotics and anaerobic culturing, please email Tami (tami@mit.edu) with your CV. Experience in microbiology is required. Formal job posting coming soon.

We may have some opening for clinical fellows, visiting scientists, undergraduates, and others on a case-by-case basis. Please send a CV and a description of your training goals and potential interests in the Lieberman Lab.

All trainees will be encouraged to do a combination of computational and experimental work.
