Nahrendorf lab at the Center for Systems Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

Position: Postdoctoral Fellow in Cardiovascular Immunology / Hematology

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow to join a dynamic research group at the Center for Systems Biology. The laboratory is located in the new Simches Research Building at the MGH campus in downtown Boston. We focus on the role of immunity in cardiovascular disease, specifically in atherosclerosis, stroke and heart failure. Of particular interest are the supply and production of leukocytes by the hematopoietic system, and the signals that regulate leukocyte supply through hematopoiesis after ischemic injuries such as myocardial infarction or stroke.

Requirements: A PhD in immunology, hematology or similar experience is required. The successful candidate should have an excellent command of FACS techniques and stem cell assays, in addition to standard molecular biology. Ideally, the candidate also has an interest in in vivo imaging and cardiovascular pathophysiology.

This postdoctoral position is available immediately and interested candidates should send their updated CV, complete contact information for two references, and a cover letter describing their past research experience, career goals and potential future research interests.
