The Du Lab at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School is seeking a talented and highly motivated postdoctoral fellow that exhibit excellent communication skills as well as both the ability to work independently and as part of a collaborative group. Our multidisciplinary team explores the genetics and mechanisms behind the formation of cerebral aneurysms. The successful applicant will utilize CRISPR-Cas9 based gene editing technologies to understand the basis of cerebral aneurysm formation, and identify potential interventions with a goal of developing new aneurysm treatment and prevention strategies. Prior lab experience with molecular biology techniques (CRISPR/Cas9) and animal handling is required.
REQUIRED EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE:
- Ph.D. in a relevant subject (e.g. cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, etc.)
- Animal handling (experimental procedures, cell preparation, etc.)
- Tissue culture (cell lines and primary cells)
- Molecular biology (PCR, cloning, genotyping, RNA and DNA isolation, flow cytometry, Western blots, etc.)
- Genome editing (CRISPR/Cas9)
- Demonstrate independent critical thinking and rigorous work.
- Strong record of productivity and good publication record in peer-reviewed journals.
- Strong personal skills, and excellent verbal and written communication skills.
- Ability to work effectively both independently and collaboratively
- Prior knowledge of cerebrovascular diseases not required.
Interested candidates should email a brief cover letter indicating their research interests, experience and career goals, CV, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Rose Du (email@example.com)
