Postdoctoral Scientist - Barrett Lab - Regenerative Medicine Institute Requisition # 19000336
- Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Inflammatory Bowel and Immunobiology Research Institute and Regenerative Medicine Institute
- Location: Los Angeles , CA
- Job Number: 7062163
- Posting Date: Nov 5, 2019
- Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionThe Cedars-Sinai Inflammatory Bowel and Immunobiology Research Institute (IBIRI) is searching for a Research Postdoctoral Scientist. IBIRI is a multidisciplinary basic, translational, and clinical research program devoted to Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Under the direction of Dr. Robert Barrett, the institute is seeking for a talented and highly motivated candidate to join our laboratory.
The Barrett Laboratory is focused on developing new models of intestinal fibrosis using iPSC- derived human intestinal organoids and small microengineered Chips. The aim of Dr. Robert Barrett's research is to learn about the mechanisms underpinning intestinal fibrosis, which is a serious complication of inflammatory bowel disease.
This position will involve maintenance of numerous induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines and their subsequent differentiation into human intestinal organoids. These organoids will then be used in a range of assays to assess their responses to various cytokines and microbes. This position will require significant amounts of cell culture along with tissue sectioning, immunohistochemistry, microscopy, western blot analysis, and qtPCR.
