Postdoctoral Research Fellow


The lab of Dr. Calum A. MacRae (MD, PhD) is looking for highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow to be an integral part of a multicenter program that builds on our recent identification of three new classes of cyanide countermeasures.

Department:MacRae Laboratory
Project Location(s):Boston, MA, US
Job Type:Full-Time

Skills & Experience

The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to work independently and as a team, to think analytically and must display excellent skills in manuscript and grant writing. Experience with zebrafish is desirable, but not essential.


The candidate will participate in studies that define their mechanisms of action and will conduct chemical screens and biochemical assays in zebrafish to evaluate the efficacy of these therapeutic leads or derivatives thereof. The candidate will also use various cell-based assays to score for their effect on human cells exposed to cyanide toxicity and to further explore the molecular mechanism through which lead compounds remedy cell death upon cyanide exposure.
