Postdoctoral Fellow: Hendriks Lab

A full-time postdoctoral fellow position is available in the research team of Dr. William Hendriks in the Molecular Neurogenetics Unit, Department of Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Our team studies the pathobiology of neurodegenerative disease, specifically Parkinson’s disease and dystonia-parkinsonism. We employ human pluripotent stem cell-based disease modeling and genome engineering approaches to discover and characterize gene function associated with Parkinson’s disease.

For a two-year funded project investigating mitochondrial genetics and its involvement in dopaminergic neuronal degeneration, we are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral fellow candidates interested in the field of neurobiology, stem cell biology and disease modeling of neurodegenerative disease. Applicants should have a strong background in genetics, cell and molecular biology and have experience with (pluripotent stem) cell culture, molecular biology techniques and bioinformatic analyses.

Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in Biology, Biochemistry or equivalent, and have a solid track record in conducting independent research during their Ph.D.

Interested candidates should submit a CV, brief description of research experience, and names and contact information for three references to Dr. William Hendriks at hendriks.william@mgh.harvard.edu
