Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Hollenhorst Lab, Harvard Medical School

Job Number: 71572

Location: Boston, US

Job Description

Postdoc Position Available in the Hollenhorst Laboratory

Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology

Harvard Medical School

Boston, MA, USA



The Laboratory

The Hollenhorst laboratory studies glycoproteins that play critical roles in hemostasis and thrombosis. Platelets and coagulation factors are heavily coated in glycans (carbohydrate polymers) which are essential for healthy function of the hemostatic system. We are interested in understanding how these glycans regulate the structure and function of hemostatic glycoproteins, and modulate the anti-platelet immune response. We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to perform cutting-edge research using the tools of chemical biology to dissect platelet and coagulation factor glycobiology. Our ultimate goal is to improve the lives of patients with bleeding and thrombotic disorders.



The Institute

The Hollenhorst laboratory is located in the Harvard Institutes of Medicine building, 4 Blackfan Circle, in the center of the Longwood Medical Area. We are a member of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Division of Hematology and Harvard Medical School. We have ties to the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT and the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center. These institutions house scientific and clinical experts in a wide variety of areas, enabling interactions with a myriad of collaborators and communities. We have access to state-of-the-art facilities for glycomics, biochemistry, chemical biology, proteomics, genomics, flow cytometry, etc. These rich resources allow laboratory members to thrive and explore novel scientific questions in a supportive and well-equipped environment.


The Candidate

Applicants must have completed a PhD and have a strong background in one or more of the following fields: chemical biology, glycobiology, biochemistry, platelet biology, hemostasis/thrombosis. We are looking for enthusiastic, self-directed learners with a strong work ethic and the ability to work in a collaborative manner. Applicants who have published at least one peer-reviewed first-author research paper are preferred. Candidates should send the following application materials to Marie Hollenhorst: cover letter, curriculum vitae, and list of at least 3 references. Please indicate in the email subject line that you are applying for the postdoc position.
