Postdoctoral Fellowship in Systems Biology of Iron Metabolism
An NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Center for Systems Biology and the Division of Nephrology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School to elucidate novel molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in iron homeostasis. The project employs state-of-the-art methods in animal models, RNA technology, and proteomics to identify proteins and pathways that integrate iron metabolism, erythropoiesis, and inflammation. A particular focus of the laboroatory is to identify the molecular basis by which bone morphogenetic proteins regulate iron metaboblism and the links between these pathways and the crippling complications of chronic kidney disease, including anemia, mineral and bone disorders, and cardiovascular disease.
Candidates for this position must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in the biomedical sciences and US citizenship or permanent residence (green card). Please send a cover letter, CV, and three references to:
