Postdoctoral Fellow & Staff Scientist Positions


One Brave Idea and the laboratories of Dr. Calum MacRae and Dr. Rahul Deo are seeking Postdoctoral Fellows & Staff Scientists interested in studying the earliest molecular and phenotypic changes during cardiovascular disease development in order to design novel, more efficacious therapies and gain insight into disease mechanisms. One Brave Idea combines innovative participant phenotyping, large scale genetic, genomic and proteomic characterization, and mechanistic cell biology to enable novel discoveries and drive their application to clinical practice.

The successful candidate would join our international team of data scientists, staff scientists, postdocs and MD/PhDs and will be part of the highly inclusive and collaborative research community at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital & Harvard Medical School. We have generous core-funding support and access to state-of-the-art facilities and technology platforms. 

We’re seeking candidates who are interested in combining interdisciplinary approaches to gain further knowledge on the initial events happening at the earliest stages of cardiovascular disease using an integration of zebrafish models and mammalian fixed and fresh samples, including those collected through a high-volume human translational program. The suitable candidates will apply both genetic and high-resolution imaging approaches with metabolic, transcriptional, and chromatin profiling assays to elucidate the core pathological mechanisms at play in cardiovascular disease. 

Qualifications: PhD in molecular and cellular biology, molecular genetics, or related field. Previous experience with zebrafish research is preferred for postdoc applicants. Applicants interested in the staff scientist position should have 3-5 years of academic or industry experience. We are committed to support candidates’ transition to academic positions or industry.  

Interested candidates should email their CV and cover letter to Evan Wilson –
