Publicado hace 9 meses

THE DIVISION OF ENDOCRINOLOGY, DIABETES, & METABOLISM at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), an affiliate of Harvard Medical School (HMS), is seeking an outstanding scientist at the Assistant Professor level to join its faculty. The academic appointment will be at HMS. The Division is a highly productive research center with particular strengths in adipose tissue biology, immunometabolism, insulin action, interoception, and the neurobiology of energy and glucose homeostasis. Significant expertise exists in a wide range of technologies, including CRISPR-based transgenesis, metabolic phenotyping, analysis of circuitry in the mouse brain using optical, electrophysiological and genetic tools, mass spectrometry, metabolomics, functional genomics, single cell transcriptomics, and bioinformatics. Current senior faculty include Barbara Kahn, Brad Lowell, Mark Andermann, Shingo Kajimura, Young-Bum Kim, Alex Banks, Linus Tsai, and Evan Rosen.

The ideal candidate will augment or complement these existing strengths and generate new opportunities for synergy and collaboration, and will have technical expertise in one or more of the following areas:  1) analysis of circuitry and behavioral outputs in the mouse brain using modern optical, electrophysiological and genetic tools, 2) -omics analysis of metabolic systems, such as lipidomics, metabolite profiling, transcriptomics, epigenomics, and/or proteomics, 3) advanced technologies in animal or human physiology, 4) stem cell or organoid based approaches to metabolism, and/or 5) computational approaches to metabolic disease.

Candidates may hold an MD, Ph.D, or MD/Ph.D, and should have a strong track record of success in terms of publications and independent funding. The successful applicant will also have the opportunity to join other members of the Division as an active member of the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. In addition, the recruit, if qualified (which is anticipated), will join and participate in the Ph.D programs at HMS.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Please send a Cover Letter, Research Plan describing past work and future plans (max 3 pages), and CV to Zain Nichols at
