We are looking for an outstanding stem cell biologist with a strong scientific background and proven accomplishments in deriving and differentiating human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) into neural cell types for functional genomics, target validation, and drug screening with a focus on neurodegenerative disorders and hearing loss.

The ideal candidate will be responsible for the maintenance, differentiation and characterization of human pluripotent stem cell-derived lines.

Extensive hands-on experience in working with neurons and/or Schwann cells, developing complex functional assays, small molecule screening, and high-content imaging is preferred. Experience with molecular techniques (including qPCR, ELISA, and western blotting) is required.

Excellent multi-tasking skills, attention to detail, and ability to work independently are required. Strong communication and people skills are required as well as a desire to work in a fast-paced, highly collaborative, translational research group working at the interface of neuroscience, stem cell biology, and novel therapeutic development.

The ideal candidate will be highly motivated, and will have a PhD degree, MD/PhD degree or a related degree in Biology, Neurobiology, or related science with at least 3 years of experience in human stem cell biology and assay development.

The laboratory is located at Massachusetts Eye and Ear, a premier research and clinical institution, which is a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. The laboratory is situated at the heart of a world-renowned, vibrant scientific environment centered around Massachusetts General Hospital in historic downtown Boston and within walking distance of MIT and the Broad and Whitehead Institutes.
