Sherwood Lab: Research Assistant

We are seeking outstanding candidates for a research technician position focusing on advanced genome engineering and stem cell biology in the lab of Richard Sherwood in the Division of Genetics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School to start in the summer of 2020. Our lab uses CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing and genomic screening approaches to understand stem cell fate determination and diseases of gene dysregulation.

The research technician position would involve stem cell culture, genome editing, genomic analysis, and molecular biology. A strong biology background and prior lab experience are required but not necessarily in the techniques mentioned above. Previously trained technicians have co-authored journal articles and moved on to MD and PhD programs, so we are looking for someone who could commit 2 years to an exciting research position to prepare them for graduate/medical school. To apply, send a cover letter, CV, and names and contact information for two references to Prof. Sherwood at

BWH & HMS are affirmative action/equal opportunity employers.
