A postdoctoral position is available for basic and translational research training in stem cell biology and skeletal muscle disease, utilizing iPSC models to investigate the cell and molecular pathology of facioscapulohumeral (FSHD) and limb girdle (LGMD2i) muscular dystrophies and to develop stem cell, gene engineering and small molecule therapeutics.
Successful candidates are expected to have obtained a Ph. D. and/or M.D. Degree within the past three years and have research training and expertise in cell and molecular biology, genome technologies, and bioinformatics. Fellows will have an opportunity to participate in multidisciplinary collaborations with basic clinical and industry scientists and fellows as part of the UMMS Wellstone Center and Muscle Disease Program.
