Postdoctoral position in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine

A postdoctoral position is available at the University of California, San Francisco to study stem cells and regenerative mechanisms in epithelial organs. Our work employs mouse genetics, ex vivo culture systems and molecular genetic approaches to explore mechanisms governing organ development, aging, and regeneration. The role of the new position is to define the effects of aging and genotoxic injury on stem cell-mediated regeneration of epithelial organs using the salivary glands and exocrine pancreas as model systems. Although these studies are mostly performed in mice, we also utilize human tissue and the development of novel assays utilizing this important resource is a significant part of this project.

The position is in the laboratory of Dr. Sarah Knox in the UCSF Department of Cell and Tissue Biology and Program in Craniofacial Biology (http://craniofacialresearch.ucsf.edu/research). The laboratory is located at the UCSF Parnassus Heights campus, in the center of San Francisco. UCSF offers an outstanding community in regenerative medicine and a supportive working environment.

Candidates having a Ph.D. degree in a biological science/engineering, extensive research experience in stem cell biology, molecular biology or genetics, experience in techniques including FACS, ChIP and/or high resolution microscopy as well as excellent communication skills – written and verbal – should submit a C.V. and names of at least 2 references via email to: sarah.knox@ucsf.edu.
