Postdoctoral Research Fellow in kidney regulated bone biology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School
A postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in the Simic laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School to elucidate novel molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in kidney and bone interaction. A particular focus of the laboratory is to identify the molecular basis by which kidney regulates phosphate metabolism, in particular in acute and chronic kidney disease. We employ state-of-the-art experimental approaches, including mouse genetic and disease models, primary cell isolation and culture, gene editing techniques, signal transduction assays, flow cytometry, proteomic and genomic approaches, etc. Postdoctoral fellows will benefit from a highly collaborative environment and connections to leading biomedical institutions in the Boston area.
Candidates for this position must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in the biomedical sciences. Ideal applicants will have experience in molecular/cellular biology and mouse models of disease, a strong publication record, and excellent communication/interpersonal skills.
If interested, please email a cover letter, CV, and the contact information for three references to:
