Postdoctoral Positions in Protein Biochemistry, Immunology, and Microbiology

Multiple postdoctoral positions (Protein bioengineering, T cell immunology, microbiology) are available at the Department of Dermatology, the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.  We seek highly motivated and qualified candidates with a Ph.D or Ph.D/MD to develop new technologies for point-of-care, to determine a relationship between mitochondrial metabolism and gut microbiota or to investigate memory T cell development in the lung. 

Our laboratory works on biomimetic nanoparticles as mucosal adjuvants for universal influenza vaccines, antibody engineering for sample-free blood biomarker detection, and photobiomodulation-mediated regeneration to address adverse side effects caused by cancer chemotherapy and immunotherapy.  Massachusetts General Hospital is a major Boston teaching hospital and teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. The postdoctoral fellows will be appointed via the department of dermatology, Harvard Medical School and have access to a range of training opportunities available via both MGH and HMS.  Salary will be according to NIH guidelines.

Requirement: The ideal candidates should have a Ph.D or Ph.D/MD degree with strong background in immunology, protein biochemistry, immune assays, microbiology or molecular biology demonstrated by strong publications.  Preference will be given to an individual who can work independently and is able to write manuscript and scientific reports at a high level.  The position also requires experience in working with small and large animals.

Contact: Interested candidates please send your curriculum vitae with contact information for three references to Dr. Mei Wu (Meiwulab@gmail.com).
