Prospective Post Docs

Brigham and Women’s Hospital is home to one of the most powerful Biomedical Research Institutes in the world. With total research expenditures topping $370 million in FY2005 (64% attributed to NIH grants), BWH has 2,600 professional and technical staff devoted to research, including over 1,000 Primary Investigators (PIs) and 800 research fellows. The BWH Biomedical Research Institute (BRI) is the umbrella organization for all research efforts at the hospital.

BWH has long had great success in biomedical research as measured by the number of important discoveries, size and scope of its research portfolio, and the volume of publications. This success is the result of the entrepreneurial nature of individual investigators, and it has been achieved with formal structures of individual Departments.

For more information about post-doctoral opportunities, please visit  The Office for Postdoctoral and Research Careers (OPRC). It is the place for postdocs to get connected into the postdoc community at BWH and across the Harvard-affiliated hospitals and Longwood Medical Area institutions.

For available post-doc opportunities, please visit  here or the BWH careers page. However, the best vehicle for finding a postdoc position is to identify a PI conducting work in your specific area of interest, and to email that PI directly with your CV and cover letter.
