The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) at Harvard Medical School (HMS) is searching for a postdoctoral research fellow to join our team. Funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA)/National Institute of Health (NIH), we aim to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying aging in the human brain. A particular emphasis will be placed on RNA-related mechanisms. These mechanisms will be examined in postmortem human brain tissues, and will be validated using in vitro assays and in vivo mouse experiments. Ideal candidates should be self-motivated, able to work independently, and also collaborate effectively as a part of a team. A minimum commitment of 2-3 years is expected, with the possibility of extension as funding is available for longer.
- PhD in Neuroscience or relevant biomedical field.
- 0-4 years postdoc experience.
- Experience in aging and/or RNA biology.
- Familiarity with spatial transcriptomics, neuronal differentiation of iPSCs, and/or bioinformatics (advantageous, but not mandatory).
- Located in Longwood Medical Area (LMA) in Boston, MA, BIDMC is a renowned teaching hospital of HMS.
- LMA, housing both HMS and BIDMC, stands as a global hub for groundbreaking biomedical research.
- Collaborate with globally recognized leaders in RNA medicine, aging biology and bioinformatics.
- Avail the opportunity to attend seminars hosted by the Harvard Medical School Initiative for RNA Medicine (HIRM), as well as other relevant scientific seminars and conferences.
- Engage with vibrant Postdoctoral communities! Postdoctoral Associations are present at both BIDMC and HMS. If you wish, you have a fantastic opportunity to become an active member.
