1) Funded position

Currently, one funded position is available, either for a post-doctoral fellow or bioinformatic analyst who is interested in applying her/his skills to our NIH-funded cohort studies with multi-level omics data (e.g., genome, methylome, microRNAome, transcriptome, metabolome, microbiome) and extensive clinical data.

  • Eligibility: This position requires a master or doctoral degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, statistical genetics, computer science (or related field), or relevant research experience.

2) Research Fellows

Self-funded fellows are welcome, depending on the availability of the spaces at Hasegawa Lab — we usually have 2-3 research fellows. We will support you to get your own funding in order to join the Lab.

  • Eligibility: MD, PhD, or MD/PhD with basic knowledge, experience, and expertise in any of areas including (but not limited to) epidemiology, statistics, computational biology, bioinformatics, immunology, microbiology, medicine, and other clinical fields.

  • Nationality: While this position encompasses the Japan-EMNet Research Fellowship, we welcome highly-motivated fellows regardless of nationality.

  • Duration: >=2 years. We are not seeking visitors, visiting scholars, fellows, or students who can stay only for a short period (such as one semester) unless one has advanced research skills and experiences.


  • Candidates with funding support of >=55,300 USD/year are highly considered and have a higher chance of acceptance (please send us a proof of funding support).

  • Please email me (khasegawa[at]mgh.harvard.edu) your CV. Please pass this information to anyone who may be interested.


Our lab members are not only very productive — publishing in the top journals in our research areas (e.g., Clin Infect Dis, Chest, J Allergy Clin Immunol, JAMA Intern Med, Resuscitation). One of the fellows has published >30 papers (including 17 first-author papers) during his 3-year fellowshiip! In addition, they are highly recognized to receive awards, honors and prizes as follows (limiting to recent awards) .
