Job Description:

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.


  • Researches, develops, designs, executes and interprets research experiments.
  • 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 presentations.

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.


  • Strong research design and analytical skills.
  • Strong written and verbal presentation skills.
  • In-depth knowledge of one's field of research and an interest in immunology
  • Comfortable with statistical theory when designing and analyzing experiments.
  • Background in computational biology would be ideal for this position.
  • Excellent time management/organizational skills.
