A postdoctoral position is available for highly motivated candidates 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, acute leukemias, and myelodysplastic syndromes. The candidate will identify genes that regulate stem cell function in disease or normal aging by evaluating purified disease stem/progenitor cells using a myriad of “-omics” approaches. Evaluation of gene function will include the use of in vitro assays and mouse models; however, special emphasis will be placed on increasing the relevance of experimental findings to human disease by validating potential therapeutic targets using primary patient samples and in vivo xenotransplantation models.
Applicants should hold a PhD and/or MD degree and have strong laboratory and analytical skills as well as a willingness to work with animals. 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 are also welcome.
