The Technology for Equitable and Accessible Medicine (TEAM) initiative at Harvard Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) solicits applications for its Postdoctoral Fellows across all areas of engineering and computer science. TEAM provides Postdoctoral Fellows with an annual salary plus travel and research funding to allow Fellows to engage in research. Fellows are expected to spend two years with TEAM.
We seek researchers enthusiastic to collaborate with engineers and medical researchers to democratize access to effective medical interventions. The goals of TEAM are broad and we invite prospective Fellows to join one of a constantly growing list of projects proposed by SEAS faculty or to propose their own. The only requirement is that any TEAM project should bring together at least two SEAS faculty, ideally from disparate areas. Here are examples of proposed or already pursued TEAM projects:
- Addictive Behaviors and the Diversity in Human Reinforcement Learning
- Co-Adaptation of Humans and Wearable Robots
- Data Driven Functional Tele-Rehabilitation of the Hand with SoV Wearable Robots
- Improving Care Coordination for Children with Complex Chronic Conditions
- High Dose Neuro-Rehabilitation for Pediatric Applications
The ideal researcher will have a PhD in a relevant area of engineering or computer science and a desire to creatively use those skills to create technologies that will make effective medical care more broadly and more equitably accessible. TEAM is a highly collaborative environment, and we expect Fellows to engage with researchers both inside and outside of SEAS.
Harvard University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. We are particularly interested in attracting women and underrepresented groups to participate in TEAM.

A complete application will include:
- A cover letter addressing what you can contribute, which project/faculty members you would most like to work with, and what you hope to gain from your time with TEAM.
- 3-5 page research statement
- At most, three research papers
- Three letters of reference
Late applications will be accepted, but for full consideration apply by January 15, 2018.
