We are interested in recruiting scientists from diverse backgrounds, including: immunology, single-cell genomics, stem cell/developmental biology, neuroscience, and inflammation. Individuals with experimental, computational, or theoretical approaches are encouraged to apply, and will have the opportunity to tackle ongoing questions in the lab while growing the research in their own direction.
No particular experience is required! We are always interested in growing our team at all levels, from undergraduate students all the way to postdoctoral and clinical fellows. We are building a supportive and collaborative training environment to launch scientists into any career.
Interested? Scroll down for details! Any thoughts or questions should be directed to Jose.
We welcome and encourage our lab members’ differences in age, ethnicity, race, gender identity or expression, ability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, familial or marital status, language, national origin, political affiliation, religious beliefs, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our lab members who they are.
Please write to Jose with your general interests, style/type of research you'd like to pursue in our lab, and a short summary of your key discoveries to date. Please include your CV as well as the names and contact info for three references. We are open to joint mentorship arrangements with local or international labs.
For enrolled students in a Harvard Medical School-affiliated graduate program (e.g. Immunology, BBS, Virology, Neuroscience, Systems Biology, and others), physician-scientist training (e.g. MD/PhD) or a Harvard University-based program (e.g. MCB, OEB, and others), please write to Jose to set up a time to discuss your current interests, and our ongoing research projects in the lab. Direct or jointly-mentored positions are available, rotation projects, as well as informal discussions and service on thesis committees.If you are applying to a program, please write in advance and we can discuss which community might best suit your training goals.
Students from any college or university are encouraged to write to Jose about summer or academic-year research projects available. Please include For academic-year inquiries, please include your research experience, any relevant coursework, and a rough estimate of how long you plan to stay in the lab.
Those completing medical training as residents or fellows at Boston Children's Hospital, or at other hospitals in the Boston area, are encouraged to write to set up a time to discuss current interests and ongoing projects in the lab. Much of our research focuses on understanding the individual patient, and their disease and treatment course, particularly in the areas of pediatric allergy, immunology, gastroenterology, dermatology, and others.
We are in the process of formalizing an opportunity for an individual (bachelor's or master's) dedicated to establishing critical resources for the lab and Division of Gastroenterology to develop and apply computational pipelines and analytical tools for clinical studies involving single-cell RNA-sequencing at scale. These projects are highly dynamic, and collaborative, involving cloud-based computational and analytical skills, contextualizing findings, and communicating results.
Another opportunity for an individual (bachelor's or master's) dedicated to establishing and leading experiments using stem-cell and organoid based models for tissue inflammatory diseases is also available.Both positions will provide teaching and mentorship growth opportunities. If you have these skill sets, please send your CV and a statement of interest to Jose.
