Job Info


OVERVIEW:

Dr. Raymond Chung's Laboratory in the Liver Center in the GI Division, Department of Medicine at MGH and Harvard Medical School has an opening for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study liver biology and immunology, pathogenesis and therapeutic targets of liver inflammation and fibrosis, resulting from chronic hepatitis B virus infection (CHB). Particularly, the Chung lab is interested in studying how innate immune cells and the cytokines produced by these cells affect liver injury, inflammation, regeneration, and cancer. Projects involve exploring the transcriptome and proteome of human liver cells at the single cell level obtained from liver fine needle aspiration and from liver biopsies and testing generated hypothesis in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo. Knowledge gained through these studies will provide insights into the pathogenesis of liver diseases beyond CHB, including nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD) and reveal possible therapeutic targets. This Postdoctoral Research Fellow position offers the opportunity to work directly with a team of Principal Investigators and co-Investigators in the Liver Center at MGH.

Qualifications
Candidates motivated to study liver biology, liver immunology, and with experience in cells culture, immunocytochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology and flow cytometry are encouraged to apply. Experience with single cell transcriptomics and proteomics is not required but is a plus. Candidate must have a PhD or MD degree and have less than five years of postdoctoral experience.

The position is open to both U.S. and non-U.S. Citizens. The qualified candidates should have good oral and written communication skills. Successful candidates will be offered a stipend commensurate with experience as well as health insurance, as per MGH regulations.

HOW TO APPLY:

The position is open immediately although the start date is flexible. If interested, please submit CV to Dr. Raymond T. Chung, Director of Liver Center, MGH (Chung.Raymond@mgh.harvard.edu)

Please send a cover letter, a C.V., and the names and contact information of three people who could provide letters of reference.
