Dr. Musolino's Laboratory within the Center for Genomic Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, a translational neuroscience laboratory focusing on developing gene therapy for inherited cerebrovascular disorders that lead to early onset of stroke and white matter injury (leukodystrophies) seeks an exceptional post-doctoral fellow to lead bench work involving in vitro cell culture and animal models of these neurogenetic diseases.
While the candidate will receive support from current study staff, as well as guidance from the Dr. Musolino and collaborating PIs, ample experience and independence to establish the use of molecular biology, iPSC cell complex assays and animal behavioral and surgical techniques is required.
Strong communication and people skills are required as well as a desire to work in a fast-paced, highly collaborative, translational research group working at the interface of neuroscience, stem cell biology, and novel therapeutic development. This position is ideal for a candidate looking to pursue an independent academic career or translational research in biotech.
The post-doc will work under the direct supervision of Dr. Musolino (PI) and in addition receive training in the laboratories of Drs. Steven Harggarty (expert in iPSC derived-systems in neurodegeneration), Eng Lo (expert in neurovascular unit biology) and Dr. Benjamin Kleinstiver (expert in gene editing) faculty members in the Centers for Genomic Medicine and Neurology Departments.
