Application Process

Partners Training Program in Precision & Genomic Medicine


We are pleased to announce the call for applications for the Partners Healthcare Training Program (T32)  in Precision & Genomic Medicine. The training program is co-led by Jordan W. Smoller, MD, ScD and Heidi Rehm, PhD and supported by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).  Our faculty comprise a broad range of leading scientists affiliated with the Partners Healthcare System (including Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital), Partners Personalized Medicine, Boston Children’s Hospital, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.


We seek talented applicants with a commitment to training in the diverse domains of precision and genomic medicine, including medical genetics and genomics, data science, molecular medicine, and implementation science. We are accepting applications for postdoctoral fellows to begin July 1, 2020.  All candidates must first identify a faculty mentor willing to accept the candidate into their laboratory, prior to application submission.  Existing faculty in the program can be found at the “faculty” hyper link above but we are open to considering other faculty in the listed institutions as long as the scope of their work relates to precision and genomic medicine.
