The Sleep Disordered Breathing Laboratory at Brigham & Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School is seeking a candidate for a postdoctoral research fellowship position. Our clinical research program is wide-ranging and multidisciplinary, with an emphasis on respiratory physiology and sleep disorders medicine. Our current faculty and trainees have backgrounds in physiology, medicine, engineering, and mathematics, and the successful candidate will be encouraged to collaborate within and outside the Division as they pursue their research interests.


Current research in the Sleep Disordered Breathing Laboratory focuses on using physiological intuition and/or engineering expertise to solve problems related to breathing disorders during sleep.  In particular, new physiological models are being developed to determine the underlying causes of sleep apnea in humans.  These approaches could lead to more effective and tolerable therapies for patients. 


We seek a postdoctoral fellow to join our team who will participate in ongoing projects and develop new research initiatives, with all studies being conducted in humans. These projects will involve studies conducted in our state-of-the art clinical research facilities at Brigham & Women’s Hospital. Candidates with a background or interest in respiratory physiology are desired.


At Harvard, there is strong Institutional and Departmental commitment to research training, with many opportunities for career development and continuing education. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to take part in our institutional training program in “Sleep, Circadian and Respiratory Neurobiology” ( The initial appointment will be for 1-2 years, with possibility of annual renewals thereafter.
