The Galloway lab is for a highly motivated individual to join a research program focused on musculoskeletal development and regenerative biology. The lab uses genomic approaches combined with zebrafish, mouse, and stem cell models to understand the pathways involved in musculoskeletal development, regeneration, and repair. The position provides an exciting opportunity to work at the interface of basic and translational research in a collaborative and stimulating environment at the Center for Regenerative Medicine and the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at MGH, Harvard Stem Cell Institute, and the Harvard Medical School.
Minimum degree and field of knowledge: B.S./B.A. in Biology or related field.
Research experience: Candidates with a strong background in molecular biology and cell culture are preferred. The position requires excellent organizational and record keeping skills.
The candidate is expected to independently carry out the daily activities of the laboratory, which include:
- Responsibilities for a wide range of laboratory techniques including molecular biology, cell culture, animal maintenance, and tissue histology.
- Documents, compiles, and analyzes information obtained from laboratory experiments.
- Demonstrates the ability to interpret data and to resolve technical problems.
- Some animal husbandry involving mouse and zebrafish models may be involved.
- Molecular biology and cell culture experience is preferred.
- Exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail are essential.
- Ability to quickly learn new techniques, think critically and work independently.
- Demonstrates the ability to work in a collaborative, team-oriented environment, and has excellent communication skills in English.
