New England Primate Research Center of Harvard Medical School Postdc募集

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Postdoctoral positions are available in a newly established lab at the New England Primate Research Center of Harvard Medical School, to study how botulinum neurotoxins target and affect neuronal cells at the molecular and cellular levels. We are seeking to elucidate the molecular basis for the action of botulinum neurotoxins and also use these toxins as probes to study fundamental cellular functions in neurons. Specific topics include: 1) identification of toxin receptors; 2) mechanisms of substrate recognition and toxin degradation; 3) neuronal degeneration triggered by botulinum neurotoxins. Please visit: http://donglab.hms.harvard.edu for a description of research directions. Experience in protein biochemistry and/or neuronal cell culture, and a background in biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology, microbiology or neuroscience is beneficial, but not required. Relevant papers include: Mol. Bio. Cell, 19:5226, Nature, 444:1096, Science, 312:592, PNAS, 101: 14701. Interested candidates please forward your curriculum vitae and names of three referees to Dr. Min Dong, New England Primate Research Center, Harvard Medical School, 1 Pine Hill Drive, Southborough, MA, 01772, or by email: (donglab@hms.harvard.edu).

New England Primate Research Center is located at the Southborough campus of Harvard Medical School. It is about 25 miles west of the Harvard Medical School main campus in Boston and about 14 miles east of UMass Medical School in Worcester. The location offers reasonable living expenses and an easy commute (free parking, driving to work is necessary). The lab is newly established in 2009. Successful applicants will enjoy close working relationship with the Principal Investigator and will play significant roles in formulating the research projects as well as the lab culture.

Harvard Medical School and the New England Primate Research Center are equal opportunity employers, committed to diversity in the workplace.
