Positions Available


The Ramsey laboratory in the Department of Dermatology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in Boston is seeking a post-doctoral fellow for the study of epigenetic regulation in cutaneous wound healing.  The laboratory studies transcriptional regulation in keratinocytes, seeking to understand how cells control migration in normal and pathologic states. Research is both basic and translational. We work with both established cell lines and pre-clinical models of wound healing. Our research utilizes traditional molecular biology, biochemistry, and GEMM modeling, as well as whole-genome technologies (Single-cell ATAC-seq/RNA-seq, hMeDIP-seq) and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing.

Highly-motivated candidates with a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, or a closely related field are welcome to apply. Applicants should possess strong laboratory, analytical, interpersonal and communication skills. Candidates with previous experience in chromatin biology, CRISPR/Cas9 systems, and single-cell technologies are highly desirable. Candidates should be scientifically curious and capable of working independently. The fellow would be expected to present/attend national scientific conferences and draft research manuscripts of their findings and would be encouraged to apply for independent funding.

The BWH Department of Dermatology is located in the Longwood Medical Area, which contains ten major institutions, including research-oriented hospitals and research institutes, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard School of Public Health, providing a rich training environment.

Interested candidates should email a brief cover letter indicating their research interests, experience and career goals, CV, and contact information for 3 references to:
