Church Lab and Dong Lab
Dr. George Church’s lab and Dr. Min Dong’s lab are seeking postdoctoral fellows to join our efforts in developing novel high-throughput methods in characterizing protein-protein interactions, human iPSC cell differentiations, and other novels tools in genetic screens and genome manipulations. The appointment will exist as a joint appointment in the Church Lab at Harvard Medical School and the Dong Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital. The Church Lab has broad expertise in biotechnology (http://arep.med.harvard.edu/gmc/) and The Dong Lab has deep expertise in the identification and characterization of protein toxins (http://donglab.hms.harvard.edu ). Dr. Church is widely recognized for his innovative contributions to genomic science and his many pioneering contributions to chemistry and biomedicine. In 1984, he developed the first direct genomic sequencing method, which resulted in the first genome sequence (the human pathogen, H. pylori). He helped initiate the Human Genome Project in 1984 and the Personal Genome Project in 2005. George invented the broadly applied concepts of molecular multiplexing and tags, homologous recombination methods, and array DNA synthesizers. He is Director of the U.S. Department of Energy Technology Center and Director of the National Institutes of Health Center of Excellence in Genomic Science. He has received numerous awards and election to the National Academy of Sciences.
Expertise and research experience in the areas of display technology, protein engineering, NGS, mass spectrometry, CRISPR genome editing, immunology, and stem cells are desired but not required. Interested applicants should email their CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please reference “Postdoc for Church/Dong Lab” in the subject line of your email.
