Description: The lab of Ralph Weissleder in the Center for Systems Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School invite applications for Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions. One or two positions are available in molecular profiling of cancer cells (see Sci Transl Med. 2014;6(219):219ra9). The ideal candidate should have a background in microfluidics, optics (microscopy), protein/DNA diagnostics, and cell biology, with expertise in system implementation and benchwork. The Center (csb.mgh.harvard.edu) has a diverse faculty with backgrounds in engineering, chemistry, biology, physics, 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. Research fellows are encouraged to write their own grants, following the training period, to launch their independent research.

Requirements: A Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D. and permanent residency is required. 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: Research Technician

Research Area: Mouse Imaging Program (MIP)

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Miller, Miles

Date Posted: 2019-03-25

Description: The Center for Systems Biology (CSB) at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is currently accepting applications for its Post-Baccalaureate Research Training Program. The CSB postbac program offers recent college graduates, particularly who are looking ahead to graduate or professional school programs, an opportunity to spend 1-2 years conducting full-time biomedical research. CSB is located within the Simches Research Building on the main MGH campus in Boston, and features a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment with close interactions with MGH clinician-researchers and faculty across Harvard Medical School (csb.mgh.harvard.edu). Program awardees will have the opportunity to work closely with faculty and will benefit from didactic educational opportunities and seminars. We offer excellent training opportunities in a highly collaborative department that brings together synthetic chemistry, chemical biology, molecular biology, systems biology, imaging and cancer research. MGH-CSB is home to highly cited faculty and is richly immersed in the broader Harvard Medical School community. Imaging and analysis technologies in part developed within CSB have progressed to clinical trials, venture creation and commercialization, and FDA approval in some cases. In the past, a good fraction of successful postbac researchers at CSB have co-authored publications and have gone on to degree-granting graduate and medical school programs.

Responsibilities: A key focus of the research program centers on the development and application of advanced imaging methods to study the in vivo biology of diseases such as cancer. CSB is home to cutting edge technologies for performing in vivo confocal and multiphoton microscopy, multi-scale imaging through whole tissues and organs, and highly multiplexed immunofluorescence, all of which can complement and inform clinically-relevant modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography / X-ray computed tomography (PET/CT). CSB is at the forefront of developing new approaches to integrate imaging with computational and genomic techniques, including machine learning and single-cell RNA sequencing, to discover new biological and clinical insights.

Requirements: Bachelor's Degree, a strong background in life sciences, excellent command of spoken and written English are essential. All interested applicants should submit a CV, transcript, and a letter of recommendation to Serena Sullivan (sullivan.serena@mgh.harvard.edu).

We will investigate how extracellular matrix signaling, mechanical stress and flow modulate endothelial function and focal inflammatory infiltration, which contribute to the development of calcification and subsequent inflammation of blood vessel in mice and in patients. We are applying comprehensive and cutting edge technologies, using various in vitro, exo vivo, transgenic animal models and clinical samples to interrogate basic vascular biology and pathophysiology that associated with chronic cardiac diseases and kidney diseases. If interested, please submit your CV, contact information and list of three referees to Dr. Jenny Lu at lu.hua@mgh.harvard.edu.
