Postdoctoral Research Fellow – Mass General Hospital, Harvard Medical School
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School
We are looking for multiple postdoctoral research fellows, visiting students, and researchers who are highly motivated, well-organized, and dynamic with high levels of independence and creative thinking to join the Shu Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School (https://www.jianshulab.org/). Our research focuses on 1) developing and optimizing experimental and computational approaches to decode complex systems across time and space at single-cell resolution by integrating genomic, epigenomic, spatial, and imaging data, along with CRISPR perturbations and lineage tracing; 2) applying these single-cell toolboxes to decode and reprogram cell fates and multi-cellular systems.
Dr. Jian Shu is an Assistant Professor at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Jian Shu is also an Associate Member at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Previously, Dr. Jian Shu was a Helen Hay Whitney Fellow working at the intersection of single-cell genomics and stem cell biology in Dr. Eric Lander’s lab at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Dr. Rudolf Jaenisch’s lab at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at MIT.
- Ph.D. with a topic in one of the following areas or related: stem cell biology, cancer biology, immunology, genomics, computational biology, computer science.
- Experience in one of the following topics is preferred but not required: CRISPR, organoid, tissue engineering, immunology, single-cell multi-omics (e.g., scRNA-seq, scATAC-seq, CROP-seq, spatial transcriptomics, MERFISH, STARMAP, SeqFISH, CYTOF), imaging data analysis, machine learning.
- High intrinsic motivation and strong scientific curiosity.
- Team player that can work in a multidisciplinary team.
- Proactive, flexible, and has a problem-solving attitude.
