Postdoc position in human hepatic differentiation Lab of Biological Engineering, Shanghai Institute for AdvancedImmunochemical Studies (SIAIS), China. Salary commensurate withqualifications.
A postdoc research position is available immediately in Prof.Elvassore’s Lab of Biological Engineering at Shanghai Institute forAdvanced Immunochemical Studies (SIAIS) in China(http://siais.shanghaitech.edu.cn/eng/research8.asp). SIAIS is anemerging antibody research institute, recently founded by ShanghaiTechUniversity. The institute has state-of-the-art core facilities forhigh-throughput screening studies. Elvassore’s lab develops microtechnologies to accurately control theculture microenvironment of human pluripotent stem cells duringreprogramming, expansion, and differentiation. We are seeking aself-motivated postdoc scientist to study the genetic basis of a hepaticdisease, starting from a library of pluripotent stem cells from patientsboth affected and healthy carriers of the disease. Selected compoundswill be used for screening therapeutic options to investigategenetic-dependent mechanism of action and recovery. Candidates should have strong background in human pluripotent stem cellculture and hepatic differentiation and hands-on experience withmolecular biology and fluorescence imaging. Experience with imageanalysis and bioinformatics is desired, but not mandatory. The positionremains open until filled. Interested candidates should email theircurriculum vitae, a cover letter with a brief personal statement ofresearch experience, and contact information for three references to HR(firstname.lastname@example.org), cc to Prof. Nicola Elvassore(email@example.com) .
