Job Description

This Postdoctoral Researcher will conduct research in any of the following areas: (1) Epigenetics of stem cells for regenerative medicine, (2) Disease modeling using pluripotent stem cells, and (c) Cellular reprogramming. Our lab uses stem cells as model systems and combine molecular, cellular, developmental and bioinformatics approaches to establish how biomaterials reshape the epigenome and regulate cell fate during development. The person in this position will work in an interdisciplinary team environment on understanding how gene regulation is altered in regenerative medicine. The employee will also seek to understand how biophysical and biochemical perturbations contribute to etiology of tissue regeneration.

Responsibilities:

  • Design, plan, conduct and coordinate experiments in support of various research projects.

  • Work in a highly collaborative environment to conceive experiments, conduct research, and analyze data.

  • Evaluate, select, and apply standard techniques of routine research; keep detailed records of data.

  • Summarize results for inclusion in scientific and clientele oriented publications.

  • Prepare and write proposals to funding agencies; maintain financial accounts related to research projects.

  • Work collaboratively with students to study the mechanism of gene regulation.

  • Supervise undergraduate and/or graduate students and other laboratory, technical or field staff involved in research.

  • Travel to conferences to perform presentations.

  • Write and edit manuscripts, and carry out multiple projects independently.

  • Support ongoing research in the lab, including basic molecular biology techniques, and stem cell differentiation.

Required Education :

  • PhD

Preferred Education :

  • PhD in basic/applied sciences/engineering.

Required Experience :

  • No prior experience required.

Preferred Experience :

  • Extensive experience with cell culture, molecular biology and whole genome sequencing.

  • Strong publication record in high impact journals.

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • Familiarity with appropriate laboratory and/or technical equipment.

  • Ability to effectively utilize a computer and applicable software (Illustrator and Photoshop).

  • Perform statistical analyses, present data and perform other computer related tasks.

  • Ability to multi task and work cooperatively with others.

  • Knowledge of advanced molecular biology techniques, stem cell differentiation.

  • Strong communication and organizational skills with a desire to pursue careers in academia.

All positions are security-sensitive. Applicants are subject to a criminal history investigation, and employment is contingent upon the institution’s verification of credentials and/or other information required by the institution’s procedures, including the completion of the criminal history check.
