Postdoctoral Reseach Position
1) A postdoctoral research position is available to join a highly collaborative and multidisciplinary research team focused on studies of neural regeneration, aging, and disease mechanisms in Parkinson's disease and neurodegenerative disorders, using stem-cell based approaches. This research has high clinical relevance for developing new therapies. The research involves human iPS cell culture, in vitro modeling of neurodegenerative disease processes and iPSC-derived neural cell therapy in Parkinson's disease. The postdoctoral fellow will have simultaneous academic appointments at Harvard Medical School and McLean Hospital. Outstanding candidates should have a therapeutic focus and extensive knowledge in neurobiology and/or clinical neurosciences. Additional preferred qualifications include experience in stem cell biology and neural cell culture and differentiation, modeling of cell biological mechanisms underlying neuronal degeneration, and molecular biology.
Technical Research Assistant
There are openings for 2-year technical research assistants in the Neuroregeneration Research Institute at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School. This position entails assisting with projects related to preclinical research for Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.
This laboratory is affiliated with the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and the Harvard Program in Neuroscience. Our center has a track record of helping technicians and research assistants with long-term career plans.
Qualifications include a bachelor's degree in neurobiology or related studies. Some background/experience in cell culture, in vitro bioassays and molecular studies relevant to neurodegenerative disease is a plus.
