Postdoctoral Position in liver fibrosis and hepatic stellate cell biology
Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston MA
A postdoctoral position is available for a highly-motivated candidate to study mechanisms of liver fibrosis and hepatic stellate cell biology in the Mullen Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
A postdoctoral scientist will lead projects to understand mechanisms that control the function of hepatic stellate cells in liver fibrosis. The projects will employ genetic, biochemical, and genomic approaches to study gene function through experiments using 2D and 3D cell culture and in vivo liver models.
Successful candidates will have earned a Ph.D. in genetics, molecular biology, cellular biology, or related fields and demonstrated the ability to complete research projects independently. Expertise with cell culture and any fibrosis models will also strengthen the application. The candidate must also demonstrate proficient oral and written communication skills and the enthusiasm to work in a multidisciplinary and collaborative environment. Experience with computational analysis is a plus but is not required, and there will be opportunities to learn these approaches while in the lab.
Interested candidates, who will be completing graduate school or who have been a postdoc for not more than 2 years, should send a curriculum vitae, a brief description of research interests and contact information for three professional references to the email address below. Additional information, including letters of reference will be required upon request.
