Job DescriptionResearch Description
Our research approaches combine molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, and animal studies to investigate A. the molecular pathways that improve survival of cardiac, muscular and corneal tissues following injury and B. the novel factors that promote tissue repair and regeneration. The long term goal of our research is to develop effective means for treatment of human diseases, such as corneal injury, myocardial infarction and muscular dystrophy.
The postdoc will drive the projects to make discoveries in above mentioned projects. Techniques include gene manipulation (CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, subcloning, mutagenesis, etc), biochemical analysis, live cell imaging (iPSC derived cardiomyocytes, skeletal muscle cells and corneal epithelial cells), proteomic analysis and animal microsurgeries (stem cell transplantation, myocardial infarction, and other surgeries in genetic modified mouse models).
• Recent PhD or MD/PhD with strong motivation and background in molecular biology, biochemistry, imaging and animal handling.
• Publications in any 3 of the following: biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and animal studies.
• Excellent verbal/written communication skills in fluent English.
• Independent self-starter, who thrives in a highly interactive, collaborative scientific environment.
