Postdoctoral position available to study articular cartilage transcriptional regulatory network.
GENERAL SUMMARY/OVERVIEW STATEMENT
Postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Harvard Medical School, Dr. Andrew Lassar, PhD Laboratory. The Postdoc will study the transcriptional regulatory network that controls both the formation and maintenance of articular cartilage. Current efforts are to understand how extracellular signals either promote the expression and/or regulate the activity of a newly identified articular cartilage transcription factor that is essential for articular cartilage formation.
EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
- Student and/or present postdoctoral fellow who has an excellent working knowledge of molecular biology techniques.
- Specifically looking for someone who wants to ask basic questions about synovial joint formation and apply this knowledge to develop regenerative approaches to treat joint pathology.
- The ability to work constructively with others, with honesty and enthusiasm are all a must for this position.
- Prior work with genetically engineered mice and/or regulation of gene expression would be a plus.
