Post-Doctoral Fellowship Positions Available:
A Postdoctoral Fellowship in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology is available at the NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) at Roger Williams Medical Center (RWMC), Providence, Rhode Island, located approximately 45 miles south of Boston, Massachusetts. RWMC is a clinical and research affiliate of Boston University School of Medicine.
The position is within the laboratory of Dr Neil Rodrigues. Dr Rodrigues has relocated to RWMC from Oxford University and has established his own laboratory focused on hematopoietic stem cell biology.
The applicant should ideally possess a PhD or MD/PhD degree and a research background in hematology, hematopoietic stem cell biology and standard molecular biology techniques.
Interested applicants should forward a cover letter and curriculum vitae that includes a detailed description of their research background, technical skills, publication record and contacts for three references. This information should be sent to Dr. Rodrigues at: email@example.com
Two Post Doctoral Fellowships in Bioinformatics of Stem Cells and Developmental Biology:
Two NIH-funded postdoctoral associate positions are immediately available to study transcriptional and epigenetic regulatory networks of endoderm cell differentiation in vivo and in cells derived from embryonic stem (ES) cells or induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. The successful applicants will be part of a collaborative effort among the Center for Regenerative Medicine, the Lung Developmental Biology Group, and the Pulmonomics Lab at Boston University Medical Center. This is a great opportunity for motivated individuals interested in gaining expertise for a career in cutting edge research.
We are looking for highly motivated scientists with a PhD in Bioinformatics or in Molecular/Cell Biology with a solid background in bioinformatics. Documented experience in the analysis of genomic datasets is required. Experience in next-generation sequencing data analysis, or integrative genomics analysis is a plus. Previous experience in developmental or stem cell biology is not required.

Post Doctoral Fellowship in Hematopoiesis and Stem Cell Biology:
Opportunity: A position as a postdoctoral fellow is immediately available in the laboratory of George J. Murphy, Ph.D at Boston University/Boston Medical Center. The position is in the field of stem cell biology and hematopoiesis, and is a great opportunity for a motivated individual interested in gaining experience, technical expertise and a publication record for a career in cutting edge research.
Duties and Responsibilities: Highly motivated, successful candidates will implement and coordinate ongoing research projects as well as design and direct novel strategies utilizing ES (embryonic stem) and iPS (induced pluripotent stem) cell modeling of blood bourne diseases. Applicants with technical expertise related to stem cell biology, viral gene transfer, and molecular biology are preferred. Familiarity with procedures including but not restricted to plasmid and genomic DNA isolation, cloning, cell culture, PCR, blotting, various tissue culture procedures, and molecular biology techniques would be helpful. Candidate will also be directly involved in executing a wide array of in vivo technical procedures and will be required to work independently as well as part of a team.
Basic Qualifications: Relevant laboratory experience; especially familiarity with molecular biology, biochemistry, and tissue culture techniques is necessary. The position is available to green card holders only per restriction by the funding agency.
Additional Qualifications: Ph.D in biological science preferred. The successful candidate should be able to manage multiple detail-oriented tasks with minimal supervision, capable of trouble-shooting and critical thinking, self-motivated, dedicated and creative.
Contact: Please forward contact details and a current CV/resume to Dr. George J. Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org
