哈佛大学医学院招聘访问学者和博士后

  哈佛医学院招聘遗传学、分子细胞生物学、免疫学方向的访问学者和博士后!以下是厚谱教育为您收集的访问学者和博士后招聘信息。

  哈佛医学院(HMS)即哈佛大学医学院,是世界上最顶尖的医学院,它因高超的医学技术与每年录取的学生最少而闻名世界。与商学院,法学院共同占有世界高等学术殿堂的一席地位,学院每年录取的国际学生极少极少,这样保证了学生的质量,学院提供了四个生物医学博士学位的课程:生物和生物医学科学(包括生物分子药理学、细胞生物学、发育和再生生物学、遗传学、微生物学和分子遗传学、病理学。),三个方案:免疫学、神经科学、病毒学。

  Postdoc Fellow

  Harvard Joslin Diabetes Center

  Boston, MA, United States

  Expires on January 15, 2021

  Postdoctoral position at Joslin Diabetes Center / Harvard Medical School

  Several postdoctoral positions are available in the context of a long-standing collaborative project between the laboratories of Drs. Peng Yi and Stephan Kissler at the Joslin Diabetes Center / Harvard Medical School.

  Their labs use whole-genome CRISPR screening to investigate the mechanism controlling pancreatic beta cell proliferation, regeneration, neogenesis and beta cell protection against autoimmune destruction or alloimmunity in Type 1 Diabetes.

  The Yi and Kissler labs are affiliated with the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and are part of the recently founded JDRF New England Center of Excellence.

  The environment at Joslin is highly collaborative and the Yi and Kissler labs have strong ties to several other world-class groups with a focus on beta cell biology, autoimmunity and type 1 diabetes.

  Drs. Yi and Kissler also head the core laboratories for CRISPR screening and mouse genome editing at Joslin. The labs have performed a series of whole genome loss-of-function and gain-of-function screens on beta cell protection against autoimmunity.

  These screens led to the discovery of many novel target genes, signaling pathways and mechanisms that underlie type 1 diabetes onset and beta cell tolerance of autoimmunity.

  The successful candidate(s) will be talented and enthusiastic researchers eager to drive projects that aim to understand the mechanism of action of these novel target genes.

  The research may also entail designing and carrying out new CRISPR screens to investigate pancreatic beta cell compensatory growth, beta cell functions and beta cell tolerance of alloimmunity.
