Are you a graduating senior looking for a full-time work opportunity in biomedicine? Come join us to learn more about Research Associate opportunities at the Broad Institute!
Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard was launched in 2004 to improve human health by using genomics to advance our understanding of the biology and treatment of human disease, and to help lay the groundwork for a new generation of therapies.
The institute was founded to seize the opportunity that arose from the Human Genome Project -- the international effort that successfully deciphered the entire human genetic code. Despite that accomplishment, scientists knew they still lacked a clear understanding of the genetic basis of disease, and how to translate that understanding into more effective prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Dr. Scott L. Rauch ’82 is President and Psychiatrist in Chief of McLean Hospital, Chair of System Behavioral & Mental Health for Mass General Brigham, and a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. On Monday, February 3, he will virtually visit Amherst's Loeb Center for a "Lunch & Learn" presentation and conversation about his career path.
Dr. Rauch's principal research interests relate to neuroimaging and the neurobiology of anxiety disorders, as well as healthcare delivery and the use of technology in psychiatry. He received his undergraduate degree with honors in Neuroscience from Amherst College ('82) and attended medical school at the University of Cincinnati. He completed his residency training and a chief residency in Psychiatry, as well as a Radiology Research Fellowship, at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in affiliation with Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Rauch served on the faculty at MGH for more than 15 years, during which he founded the Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program, the Psychiatric Neurotherapeutics Program, and the Psychiatric Neuroscience Division. He was appointed to his current leadership roles at McLean and MGB in 2006.
Most recently, Dr. Rauch has been involved in the leadership of several national professional societies, including as past president and current secretary of the Society of Biological Psychiatry, and as past secretary and current Board member of the Anxiety & Depression Association of America. Dr. Rauch has also been inducted into the National Academy of Medicine.
All class years and majors are welcome to attend.
Join us for a virtual independent residency in creative writing. Modeled on writers’ and artists’ colonies like MacDowell, Yaddo and the Provincetown Fine Arts Workshop, this program offers you the opportunity to devote attention to your fiction, poetry, dramatic writing or creative nonfiction in a supportive environment. Participants will have opportunities for collaborative structured writing and the freedom to choose between social and independent writing each day. Participants are welcome to work on either new or existing projects. And for participants seeking guidance, instruction or simply feedback on their work, we'll offer one-on-one mentoring sessions with program leaders. At the end of the program, we'll come together for a virtual community reading, during which we'll share work produced during the residency. We will meet via Zoom and Google docs from 1pm to 4pm (EST) on February 3rd-5th and February 8th and 9th. The residency is led by writing center associates Roy Andrews and Emily Merriman. Please register via the link below.
In times of turbulence and change, it may be challenging to determine what projects take precedent, or how to set priorities when everything seems top of mind. This session will talk through how our priorities may have shifted both individually and within our teams, and how to facilitate a decision-making process using a prioritization matrix tool.
