A postdoctoral research associate position is available at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in mechanisms of musculoskeletal development, homeostasis, disease, and regeneration/repair. The laboratory currently has projects available that are focused on regulation of tissue formation, growth, and extracellular matrix development in cartilage using animal and tissue engineering models (primary cells and stem cells). The successful applicant will have recently earned a Ph.D. in biological, chemical, or engineering sciences, as well as have extensive experience with standard techniques of biochemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology, including methods in cell culture and biological imaging. Additional experience with mouse genetic models, confocal/super-resolution microscopy, and/or genomic/epigenetic analysis is desirable.
Applications must include a brief cover letter, c.v., a one-page description of your significant research accomplishments, a 300 word abstract describing an empirical approach to a question in cartilage biology that interests you, and contact information for three referees that can comment on your intellectual and technical abilities.
Applications are being accepted online at http://unmc.peopleadmin.com/postings/33277.
Individuals from diverse backgrounds are encourage to apply.
