Mannstadt Lab: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Mannstadt Laboratory
Endocrine Unit
Massachusetts General Hospital
Harvard Medical School

Job description

The Mannstadt laboratory investigates molecular mechanisms controlling the development and function of parathyroid glands, which produce parathyroid hormone that regulates calcium and phosphate homeostasis. Our laboratory applies wide-ranging techniques to study parathyroid in vitro and in vivo. A major focus of the laboratory is to understand the differentiation of pluripotent stem cells towards parathyroid cells. These studies will lead to an improved understanding of parathyroid function and have important implications for treating parathyroid diseases.

We strive for impactful science in a collegial and highly collaborative environment. Career development is a major priority. Post-doctoral fellows will benefit from connections to premier academic laboratories, hospitals, and research institutions in the greater Boston biomedical environment.

Job Requirements

  • The ideal candidate will have a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD in the biomedical sciences, with experience in molecular/cell biology, biochemistry, and animal model systems.
  • Experience in cell culture, including stem cells, molecular/cell biology, and mouse models of disease, is preferred.
  • Qualified candidates should be able to work independently as well as in a group environment.
