Postdoc position in human hepatic differentiation
Lab of Biological Engineering, Shanghai Institute for Advanced Immunochemical Studies (SIAIS), China. Salary commensurate with qualifications.
A postdoc research position is available immediately in Prof. Elvassore’s Lab of Biological Engineering at Shanghai Institute for Advanced Immunochemical Studies (SIAIS) in China (http://siais.shanghaitech.edu.cn/eng/research8.asp). SIAIS is an emerging antibody research institute, recently founded by ShanghaiTech University. The institute has state-of-the-art core facilities for high-throughput screening studies.
Elvassore’s lab develops microtechnologies to accurately control the culture microenvironment of human pluripotent stem cells during reprogramming, expansion, and differentiation. We are seeking a self-motivated postdoc scientist to study the genetic basis of a hepatic disease, starting from a library of pluripotent stem cells from patients both affected and healthy carriers of the disease. Selected compounds will be used for screening therapeutic options to investigate genetic-dependent mechanism of action and recovery.
Candidates should have strong background in human pluripotent stem cell culture and hepatic differentiation and hands-on experience with molecular biology and fluorescence imaging. Experience with image analysis and bioinformatics is desired, but not mandatory. The position remains open until filled. Interested candidates should email their curriculum vitae, a cover letter with a brief personal statement of research experience, and contact information for three references to HR (firstname.lastname@example.org), cc to Prof. Nicola Elvassore (email@example.com).
