Post-Doctoral Fellow at Harvard in Bioengineering, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology and Blood Disorders: Boston, MA, United States4.7.2017
Two postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Dhvanit Shah Laboratory (www.shahlaboratory.org) at the Division of Hematology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) & Harvard Medical School (HMS), Boston MA, United States.
The Shah laboratory is located in a dynamic Harvard Medical Area that offers excellent opportunities for intellectual exchange and collaborations among investigators from diverse fields. We investigate the origin, development, and differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), and their utility in treating patients with blood and bone-marrow diseases. We have expertise in utilizing zebrafish, mice, and human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to analyze novel genes and mechanisms important for blood formation. Our goals are to utilize our knowledge in developing cellular- and mechanism-based therapies as well as generating functional HSCs for the treatment of hematological diseases.
Position # 1: Hematopoietic Stem Cell Development and Disorders
Ideal candidate will have Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. in Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cells, Immunotherapy, Hematology, Oncology, and/or Biology. This position offers an excellent opportunity to learn and apply skills in directed differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells and/or human induced pluripotent stem cells, epigenetics, HSC transplant, xenograft, computational biology, high-throughput screening, gene-editing, and/or molecular and cellular biology techniques. Strong background in one or more of these areas is preferred. Qualified candidate should be able to work independently as well as in a group environment.
Position # 2: Bioengineering of 3D Scaffold Development
Ideal candidate will have Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. in Tissue Engineering, Biomaterials, Biophysics, Machine Learning, Systems Biology, Chemical Engineering, and/or Drug Development. This position offers an excellent opportunity to learn and apply skills in organoid development, 3D bio-printing, Bio-MEMS, artificial intelligence, microfluidics, proteomics, and/or medicinal chemistry. Strong background in one or more of these areas is preferred. Qualified candidate should be able to work independently as well as in a group environment.
Interested candidates should send their cover letter, CV, and contact details of three references to:
