Job Opportunities

Multiple Postdoctoral Fellowships in Physiological Signal Processing and Machine Learning

Organization
Massachusetts General Hospital, Cardiovascular Research Center

Location
Boston, MA

Description
The projects involve the development of novel signal processing algorithms and hardware to improve health care delivery in:

  1. The Intensive Care Unit
  2. Smart-phone based diagnostics

The interested individual(s) will function as part of a multi-disciplinary team of life scientists, engineers and clinicians.

Environment
The mission of the laboratory is to develop advanced computational approaches to study the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias from the myocyte to the whole organ level. Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is a major research center, affiliated with Harvard Medical School and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Collectively, these institutions represent one of the largest aggregations of biomedical researchers in the world. Opportunities exist for scientific interaction and collaboration with an extensive program of seminars, symposia and other organized meetings focused on a large array of topics. These seminars are weekly and include local, national, and international speakers on topics of general relevance for cardiovascular science and medicine. The Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) has an internationally recognized research program in cardiovascular, vascular, and pulmonary disease and development. The CVRC is home to over 100 researchers, in two locations – the Charlestown Navy Yard and the new Richard B. Simches Research Building. The MGH Division of Cardiology and the CVRC have a proven track record in training leaders in the fields of applied cardiac electrophysiology, pulmonary and vascular biology.

Qualifications
The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or other relevant areas of biomedical sciences. She/he should possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, be independent, self- motivated, and should have solid knowledge of machine learning and signal processing, and significant programming experience in MATLAB and Python.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Pulmonary Vascular Biology

Organization
Massachusetts General Hospital, Cardiovascular Research Center

Location
Boston, MA

Description
A postdoctoral fellowship in pulmonary vascular biology is available in the Cardiovascular Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in the laboratory of Dr. Paul Yu. A highly motivated candidate is sought for a fellowship that will examine cell signal transduction, cell biology, molecular pharmacology, and physiology with the goal of developing novel therapeutics for cardiopulmonary disease. Recent trainees have published high-profile manuscripts, presented at national conferences, won competitive fellowship and research awards, and contributed to the development of several treatments now in various stages of clinical development (Yung LM et al., Sci Transl Med; Yang P et al., NEJM 2021). Recent trainees have attained faculty posts at prestigious academic institutions or attained Senior Scientist positions in the biotechnology and pharma industry. The Yu laboratory seeks to understand how signals mediated by the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) and transforming growth factor-b (TGF-b) of molecules are transduced by target cells and integrated in physiologic and disease contexts. Human genetics has highlighted the roles of this signaling pathway in cardiopulmonary and musculoskeletal disease. We have developed unique experimental probes, novel animal and cellular models, and potentially translatable drug molecules to interrogate basic mechanisms of disease.  Our work lies at the nexus of progenitor cell biology, chemical biology, cardiovascular physiology, and experimental pharmacology.

We welcome applications from creative, independent, and entrepreneurial-minded individuals interested in pursuing multidisciplinary approaches to mechanisms of disease. A current CV, letter of interest, and three references should be sent to: pbyu@partners.org

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions, or any other characteristic protected by law.
