Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Multiscale Network Biology

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Miller, Miles

Date Posted: 2018-07-17

Description: The Center for Systems Biology (csb.mgh.harvard.edu) has an immediate opening for a position within the Multiscale Network Biology Program, https://csb.mgh.harvard.edu/miller. The Center for Systems Biology is located within the Simches Research building on the main MGH campus, and features a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment with close interactions with MGH clinician-researchers and investigators across Harvard and MIT. We offer excellent training opportunities in a young, dynamic and highly collaborative research environment including chemistry, chemical biology, molecular biology, systems biology, imaging and cancer research. All interested applicants should submit a CV and two letters of reference to Serena Sullivan (sullivan.serena@mgh.harvard.edu). 

Responsibilities: The candidate will be trained in advanced network analysis and image processing techniques including in vivo microscopy, image segmentation and morphometry, systems pharmacology, and multivariate analysis of large datasets.

Requirements: PhD is preferred but we will consider candidates with a MS and experience. A strong background in computational modeling and excellent command of spoken and written English are essential. Prior experience in cancer cell biology is a plus.


Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Cardiovascular Immunology / Hematology

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Nahrendorf, Matthias

Date Posted: 2018-07-17

Description: We are looking to recruit a highly motivated team player who enjoys creative thinking and problem solving. If you love science, consider joining our dynamic interdisciplinary research group at the Center for Systems Biology. We are a group of 10 scientists and focus on the role of immunity and hematopoiesis in the setting of cardiovascular disease. Of particular interest are the production of innate immune cells by the hematopoietic system, and the signals that regulate leukocyte supply after ischemic injuries such as myocardial infarction or stroke. Most of our work is done in mice, but we increasingly also work with human samples. Recent publications: Nahrendorf M. Myeloid cell contributions to cardiovascular health and disease. Nature Med. 2018;24(6):711-720 - PMID: 29867229 Hulsmans M et al. Macrophages Facilitate Electrical Conduction in the Heart Cell. 2017;169:510-522 - PMID: 28431249

Requirements: Experience in immunology, hematology, intravital microscopy or gene editing is a plus but not a must.


Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Area: Renal

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Investigator: Lu, Jenny (Hua)

Date Posted: 2018-07-16

Description: A T32 funded postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Hua Jenny Lu at the Renal Division, Department of Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. Funding is available for two years, with extended funding possible. This position will focus on one of these two projects: 1) study beta1 integrin-extracellular matrix signaling in kidney collecting duct epithelial cells that mediates interstitial fibrosis of the kidney; 2) characterize the function of a novel gene in regulating kidney inflammation and podocyte metabolism that contributes to the development of proteinuria kidney diseases. We are applying in vitro, exo vivo and various animal models using comprehensive and state of the art technologies to interrogate mechanism of kidney injury and repair. If interested, please submit your CV and contact information for four references to Dr. Jenny Lu at lu.hua@mgh.harvard.edu.

Requirements: The candidates must hold a PhD or/and MD degree within cell biology, molecular biology, or physiology. Prior experience with cell culture, basic biochemical techniques, immunocytochemistry, western blotting and qRT-PCR is essential. Experience with animal study is an advantage. In addition, candidates must be either US citizen or a green card holder as required by NIH training grant.

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: 2018-07-03

Description: A postdoctoral research fellow position is available in the Babitt laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School. We are part of the MGH Division of Nephrology, Program in Membrane Biology, and Center for Systems Biology located in the Simches Research Center adjacent to the MGH main campus in Boston. The overarching 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 diseases related to disordered iron homeostasis. We employ a multidisciplinary approach including molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and animal studies. Current focuses are to investigate iron sensing and hepcidin regulation in the liver; crosstalk between iron, inflammation and fibroblast growth factor 23 and their contributions to mineral and bone disorder and cardiac complications in chronic kidney disease; and the role of iron and bone morphogenetic proteins in glucose homeostasis.

Requirements: Candidates for this position must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in the biomedical sciences. Successful applicants will have an experimental background in molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, and/or genetics, a strong publication record, and excellent communication/interpersonal skills.
