Job description: The Rajagopal Laboratory at Center for Regenerative Medicine at the Massachusetts General is seeking a highly motivated research fellow to study airway biology. The fellow will join a collaborative group of scientists and physicians who study the basic and translational biology of airway stem cells, airway regeneration, fibrosis, squamous metaplasia and cancer.  We integrate the approach of classical developmental and modern stem cell biology and use these to explore human tissue regeneration and disease.  Mouse genetic models, explants systems, live cell imaging, and other techniques are routine.

Job requirements: The candidate should have PhD or an MD/PhD in a relevant field or equivalent training. A strong foundation in cell, developmental, cancer, or molecular biology is necessary including a foundation in the genetic modulation of any model organism.  An ancillary knowledge of genomics or system biology is welcome. Knowledge of human disease is unnecessary as it will be acquired rapidly. Outstanding oral and written communication skills are required.

Email your CV, statement of interest and career goals, and names and contact information of at least three references to Jay Rajagopal (jrajagopal@partners.org). For more information visit: http://www.massgeneral.org/regenmed/staff/Rajagopallab
