Primary Category: Research
Type of Position: Postdoctoral Research Scientists

Description & Details:

The Fishman lab in the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at Harvard University, in collaboration with the Engert Lab in MCB of Harvard, is launching a program to define in zebrafish the function of heart-brain neural connectivity. The goal is a full definition of: what sensory nerves measure within the heart and vasculature; how they connect to central nervous system centers; and how such information is integrated and used to control cardiovascular function. The technical approaches includes single cell transcriptomics, electrophysiology and optogenetics, and electron microscopy

Qualifications:

There is available a post-doctoral position for Ph.D. or M.D. scientists with a strong relevant background including, for example, model organism genetics (knockouts and transgenesis), zebrafish biology, electrophysiology, transcriptional and epigenetic analysis, and/or cardiovascular function.

To Apply:

To apply, email cover letter, CV, names and contact information (email, address, and telephone number) of three references to Mark Fishman (mark_fishman@harvard.edu) copied to Emily Voce (emily_voce@fas.harvard.edu).
