Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Cell Biology

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Weissleder, Ralph

Date Posted: 2016-10-04

Description: The Weissleder lab in the Center for Systems Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School invites applications for Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions. One position is available in molecular profiling of cancer cells (see Sci Transl Med. 2014;6(219):219ra9). The Center has a diverse faculty with backgrounds in chemistry, biology, physics, engineering and medicine, and offers a lively and supportive environment in which to perform interdisciplinary science.

Responsibilities: We seek creative thinkers who take risks in defining and addressing important problems, and who use quantitative experimental, computational and/or theoretical approaches in their work.

Requirements: A Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D. and permanent residency is required. The ideal candidate has a background in protein/DNA diagnostics, cell biology, or molecular biology and has performed extensive benchwork in the past. To apply, please send your CV, a summary of your most significant research accomplishments (300 words) and the email addresses of three references to: Serena Sullivan (Sullivan.Serena@mgh.harvard.edu), CSB, Simches Research Center, 185 Cambridge Street, Suite 5.210, Boston, MA 02114.

Requirements: A Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D. and permanent residency is required. The ideal candidate has an extensive synthetic background and track record in chemical syntheses and analyses. To apply, please send your CV, a summary of your most significant research accomplishments (300 words) and the email addresses of three references to: Serena Sullivan (Sullivan.Serena@mgh.harvard.edu), CSB, Simches Research Center, 185 Cambridge Street, Suite 5.210, Boston, MA 02114.


Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Iron biology, molecular and cellular biology, animal models, genetics, biochemistry

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Babitt, Jodie

Date Posted: 2016-09-07

Description: A Postdoctoral Fellow is sought to work in the Program in Membrane Biology/Division of Nephrology/Center for Systems Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital. The goal of our research program is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in iron homeostasis and to develop new therapeutic strategies to treat iron disorders such as anemia of chronic disease, thalassemia, and hemochromatosis. We employ a multidisciplinary approach including molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and animal models.

Requirements: Candidates for this position must have an M.D. or Ph.D (or equivalent) in the biomedical sciences. Successful applicants will have an experimental background in molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, and animal studies, a strong publication record, and excellent communication/interpersonal skills. Please email a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information of three references to Babitt.jodie@mgh.harvard.edu.


Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Mechanistic Mathematical Modeling of Human Pathophysiology

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Higgins, John

Date Posted: 2016-09-07

Description: A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of John Higgins, MD, jointly located at the Harvard Medical School Department of Systems Biology and the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Systems Biology and Department of Pathology. Qualified applicants will have extensive knowledge of and interest in human pathophysiology, dynamical systems, numerical methods, and good software engineering practices. For example, strong candidates would be able to compare and contrast the following: finite elements and finite differences, lymphocyte and myelocyte, quicksort and bubble sort. The successful applicant will become part of a small research group that is located at the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Systems Biology and is an integral part of the Harvard Medical School Department of Systems Biology and the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Pathology. The successful applicant will be interested in becoming an active and contributing member of these combined clinical, clinical research, and basic research communities.

Responsibilities: Expected activities will include: 1) Studying existing research on an area of interest in human pathophysiology. 2) Developing mechanistic models describing relationships between relevant clinically measurable quantities and how they change over time. 3) Implementing dynamic computational models in well-designed and structured MATLAB code. 4) Developing complex structured queries for clinical databases to identify cases appropriate for model development and validation. 5) Acquiring clinical specimens from hospital laboratories. 6) Working closely with basic science and clinical collaborators to develop theoretical basis for models and to design and execute molecular and cellular measurements of human clinical specimens and collaborator model organisms to validate model predictions and to test hypotheses.

Requirements: Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree or students in their final year of their doctoral studies and an undergraduate or advanced (pending or completed) degree in math, computer science, or engineering.
