The Research Fellow will perform research under the guidance of Marie-France Hivert, MD, MPH, an Associate Professor in the Department of Population Medicine (DPM) at Harvard Medical School and the Diabetes Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. They will conduct analyses, prepare tables/figures for manuscripts, and lead manuscript writing. Research will be in the area of genomics and transcriptomics of glycemic regulation during pregnancy such as gestational diabetes, and other pregnancy-related metabolic disorders using a rich dataset from the prospective mother-child cohort Gen3G. Our current investigations focus on how placenta mRNA and microRNA contribute to maternal glycemic regulation during pregnancy, leveraging sequencing data available in Gen3G. Other projects may be available based on the interests of the Fellow and successful completion of primary analyses. Contact:
