Disease Biophysics Group Postdoctoral Fellow Positions

The Disease Biophysics Group at Harvard University invites applications for a number of Postdoctoral Fellow positions open for projects pertaining to building microscale models of diseased organs. The project requires the assembly of engineered, human microtissues in microfluidic devices that can be interrogated for the genetic, morphological and functional indicators of health, disease, and injury.

The Disease Biophysics Group is a multidisciplinary research group based in the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Wyss Institute for Biologically-Inspired Engineering, and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute.

Candidates with experience in neuronal cell biology, striated and smooth muscle tissue engineering, the cardiac valves, and experimental models of diabetes are encouraged to apply. Applicants are expected to hold a doctoral degree in engineering, physiology, or cell biology and have a proven record of high quality publications.

Application Procedure

The application will be assembled as single pdf file: cover letter describing research interests and goals, CV, research statement, a full list of publications and up to three examples of first author papers, and a list of no less than three references with contact information.  Please note that all requirements for the doctoral degree must be completed prior to the start date.  The application should be sent to:dbg-postdoc@seas.harvard.edu

Full consideration will be given to all applications received by February 15, 2013; applications received thereafter will be considered until the positions are filled.

Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer. Women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.

Merging Art and Science September 17th, 2015

Recently the DBG had the pleasure of hosting Nashville, TN based artist Carla Ciuffo for a collaboration with our Nanofibers team, resulting in a new traveling museum exhibit titled “Nano . Stasis” The objective of this multimedia exhibition is to unify a stunning advance in science with its artistic counterpart, in effect emphasizing how creativity, beauty and science are truly intertwined.
