A postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly motivated candidate to join a fast-moving, team-oriented research group interested in identifying molecular mechanisms that regulate normal and diseased stem cells in the hematopoietic system. Areas of interest include hematopoietic stem cell biology (especially during aging), acute leukemias, and the myelodysplastic syndromes. The candidate will identify genes that regulate stem cell function by evaluating normal and disease stem/progenitor cells using a myriad of “-omics” approaches. Evaluation of gene function will include extensive use of stem cell transplantation assays, both using mouse models of disease as well as xenotransplantation models.
Applicants should hold a PhD and/or MD degree and have strong laboratory and analytical skills as well as a desire to work with stem cell transplantation models. Those with prior experience in hematopoietic/leukemia stem cell biology are especially encouraged to apply, but those with strong backgrounds in molecular biology/biochemistry, cancer biology, or “-omics” approaches will also be considered.
Inquiries may be made to Belinda Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full applications including curriculum vitae, a summary of current and future research interests, expected availability date, a description of past research experience and accomplishments, selected reprints of publications, and three references should be submitted to the address below.
