Postdoc positions available to study stem cell biology and regeneration of the skin
The Hsu Lab at Harvard University’s Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology (HSCRB) uses skin as a model to study cell-cell interactions and how systemic factors and environmental changes regulate stem cell behaviors. The lab takes multidisciplinary approaches to investigate stem cell behaviors in the skin, one of the most regenerative tissues in mammals that are highly susceptible to diverse environmental insults. Building on the novel tools we developed, the lab is expanding research directions into multiple areas, including nerve-stem cell interaction, immune system-stem cell interaction, the developmental biology of stem cell and niche establishment, and organ-level regeneration in mammals.
We are looking for PhD candidates with solid training and strong publication records in any of the following areas: developmental biology, stem cell biology, neurobiology, immunology, endocrinology, or cell biology. Expertise in single-cell RNAseq, bioinformatic analysis, imaging, or experience working with mouse models and surgical procedures is preferred. Outstanding oral and written communication skills are important. We also welcome candidates who would like to develop their independent projects with us outside of our current research directions, as long as those projects fit with the lab’s central theme.
The laboratory is located on the Harvard Cambridge Campus. Successful candidates will benefit from state-of-the-art research facilities and a vibrant, collaborative research environment within the lab, the department, and the greater Harvard and Boston area.
