Research Fellow, Surgery Research
Company: Brigham and Women's Hospital
Posted on: June 12, 2021
We seek a motivated and enthusiastic Post-Doctoral Research
Fellow with the capacity to work independently on highly technical
immune system biology studies that address disease mechanisms
associated with traumatic injury, infections, sepsis, and related
immune responses to tissue injuries. The Fellow is required to have
received a Ph.D., MD, MD/Ph.D., or equivalent degree. The Fellow
will work under the supervision of James A. Lederer, Ph.D. at
Brigham and Women's Hospital, a Harvard Medical School academic
affiliate. The Fellow will receive training, professional
development, and mentorship during the appointment period. The
Fellow will work in a laboratory space that is located in the Thorn
Building for Medical Research within BWH with additional potential
to establish successful project-specific collaborations in a
variety-of directions. The fellow will also be encouraged to apply
for independent fund from a variety of funding agencies e.g. NIH,
DoD, or Foundations. The main areas of focus will be in the
converging fields of trauma/injury research and immunology,
primarily investigating the role CD4 regulatory T cells (Tregs)
mediate in the context of traumatic injury. The fellow will have
access to cutting-edge single cell modalities, e.g. Mass Cytometry
(CyTOF), RNAseq, TCRseq, and other types of cellular and molecular
technologies that are used for basic immunology research.
PRINCIPAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
- Researches, develops, designs, executes and interprets research
- Manage experiment specific mouse colonies and perform hands-on
experimental techniques in a mouse model
- Utilize the lab's main investigative techniques, i.e. CyTOF,
RNAseq, Luminex, flow cytometry, immune cell biology; with the
possibility of developing new methods and/or bringing in another
method, when the need arises.
- Contributes to scientific literature, reports, journals and
The successful candidate will have recently completed graduate
studies in a PhD or MD/PhD program with a strong research and
publication record in the biological sciences.
SKILLS/ ABILITIES/ COMPETENCIES REQUIRED:
- Strong research design and analytical skills.
- Strong written and verbal presentation skills.
- In-depth knowledge of one's field of research and an interest
- Comfortable with statistical theory when designing and
- Background in computational biology would be ideal for this
- Excellent time management/organizational skills.
