We are seeking a highly motivated individual for a postdoctoral fellow position in the Program of Molecular Medicine and Diabetes Center of Excellence at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The Maehr laboratory focuses on human pluripotent stem cell-based disease models to investigate and to find novel treatment strategies for immune syndromes, such as Type 1 diabetes.
You will participate in research centered around the modeling of immune syndromes with human pluripotent stem cells (induced pluripotent stem cells, embryonic stem cells, and stem or progenitor cell-derived organoids). Your responsibilities are to perform experiments, including stem and immune cell culture and differentiation, CRISPR-based mechanistic studies, molecular and immunological analyses, and xenograft experiments in mice). You are expected to analyze and present data in lab meetings, departmental and institutional work-in-progress seminars and national and international conferences. Further, you will prepare manuscripts and help with preparation of grant applications under guidance of the PI.
Candidates should possess a Ph.D. in biological sciences. Experience in immunology, stem cell biology and/or functional genomics are a plus. Excellent communication, writing, and collaboration skills are essential.
Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV and name of three references to Dr. René Maehr (email@example.com).
