Opportunities

We are seeking responsible and detail-oriented individuals interested in a long-term commitment to our lab and organ regeneration. Prior experience in stem cell & developmental biology, engineering, and animal handling are preferred. If you are interested, please contact our lab manager, Lisa Fitzgerald.

Currently open positions: Postdoctoral Scientist in Organ Engineering (3041977)

A funded opportunity for two postdoctoral scientists in organ engineering is available in the laboratory of Dr. Harald C Ott in the Department of Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) — a Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospital.

The Ott laboratory applies tissue engineering and developmental biology principles to organ engineering to create patient specific tissue grafts with higher level function. Our projects span from heart, lung to kidney, pancreas, airway, and composite tissue. We are part of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, and the Center for Regenerative Medicine, and have collaborative relationships across many institutions.

The ideal candidate will have a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD in biomedical sciences, with a record of research productivity, problem solving capability, creativity, and established skills in iPSC cell culture, and tissue engineering or developmental biology. Our team offers a tremendous opportunity to learn and apply skills in cell and tissue culture techniques, directed differentiation, and applied developmental biology. A strong background in one or more of these areas is preferred.

We are currently seeking candidates with a specific interest in vascular and pulmonary epithelial biology.

Our students and postdoctoral fellows work in a collegial and collaborative cutting edge research environment where career development is strongly emphasized.

Interested applicants should send CV, and the names/phone numbers of 2-3 people who could provide letters of reference to our lab manager, Lisa Fitzgerald.
