Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary RESEARCH FELLOW in Boston, Massachusetts
Description We are seeking a recent PhD graduate to join a lively research group headed by Drs. Patricia D’Amore and Eric Ng at the Schepens Eye Research Institute (SERI) – Mass. Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. The successful candidate will be involved in studying both the basic pathobiology as well as potential translational/pre-clinical research of various inflammation-associated neuro-vascular pathologies (AMD, diabetic retinopathy, and atherosclerosis) by generating novel genetic models. The fellow will have access to in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo research models, as well as various research techniques and advanced equipment. The successful candidate is expected to qualify for training grants and fellowships, and also to participate in the NIH funded Postdoctoral Training Program in the Molecular bases of Eye Disease at SERI (http://serinet.meei.harvard.edu/training/index.html), to ensure a successful and well-rounded post-doctoral training to prepare the candidate as an independent PI in both academia and in industry.
The ideal candidate should have a strong background in molecular biology and genetic models of vascular diseases. Experience in gene targeting, in vivo models of vascular and ocular diseases, immunology, molecular cloning, micro-dissection, cell culture, histology/immunohistochemistry is desirable.
As part of your training, you will work as part of one or more projects and will acquire the research skills to be proficient in designing, managing, and performing experiments. You will also be expected to collect and analyse data and deliver experimental research reports when necessary; writing scientific manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals, and present research data internally and externally. You will also have the opportunity to write and assist in the preparation of external grant applications and fellowships.
Applicants must be passionate about conducting scientific research, demonstrate ethics and integrity, and can work both independently and as an effective member of a research team.
Please email curriculum vita, a letter of interest, and a brief statement of research accomplishments and career goals along with contact information for three references to: email@example.com.
The Institute is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
