Research Fellow Job Code: 3057928
GENERAL SUMMARY/ OVERVIEW STATEMENT:
A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Marc Wein at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Endocrine Unit. MGH is a Harvard Medical School (HMS)-affiliated hospital. This is a full-time position with an affiliated Research Fellow appointment proposed at Harvard Medical School (HMS). This position is contingent upon successful credentialing by the MGH Registrar/Credentialing Unit.
PRINCIPAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
The Wein laboratory investigates molecular mechanisms controlling the development and function of osteocytes, cells with a central role in orchestrating bone homeostasis. We employ wide-ranging techniques to study osteocyte biology in vitro and in vivo. A major focus of the laboratory is to understand the intracellular signaling system used by parathyroid hormone (PTH) on osteocytes. These studies will lead to an improved understanding of skeletal responses to PTH, and have important implications for the treatment of osteoporosis and chronic kidney disease.
EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE REQUIRED:
- The ideal candidate will have a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD in biomedical sciences, with experience in cell culture, molecular/cell biology, biochemistry, and mouse models of disease.
- This position offers an excellent opportunity to learn and apply skills in osteocyte biology, endocrinology, CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome editing, signal transduction, phospho-proteomics, epigenetics, and molecular/cellular biology techniques. A strong background in one or more of these areas is preferred.
- Qualified candidates should be able to work independently as well as in a group environment.
- Duties will be performed in a research laboratory.
- No direct patient contact will occur.
- Must be willing to work with mice.
- Flexible work hours conducted over a forty-hour workweek.
We strive for impactful science in a collegial and highly-collaborative environment. Career development is a major priority. Post-doctoral fellows will benefit from connections to premier academic laboratories, hospitals, and research institutions in the greater Boston biomedical environment. MGH and HMS are affirmative action/equal opportunity employers. Interested candidates should send their cover letter, CV, and contact information of at least two references to:
