Postdoctoral Research Fellow iPS cells in vascular biology (Melero-Martin Lab)

 

 Laboratory: 

Juan Melero-Martin, PhD
Boston Children’s Hospital
Harvard Medical School

Boston MA, United States

Description:

A post-doctoral research position is available to study the use of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in various bioengineering approaches to vascularization and tissue regeneration. Work will involve human stem cell culture, biomaterials, molecular biology, and mouse xenograft models.

The Melero-Martin Lab is a cell biology and bioengineering laboratory specialized in endothelial progenitor cells and vasculature bioengineering. Our interests are best summarized in the following papers:

Human endothelial colony-forming cells serve as trophic mediators for mesenchymal stem cell engraftment via paracrine signaling. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 2014; 111(28):10137-10142.

Transdermal regulation of vascular network bioengineering using a photopolymerizable methacrylated gelatin hydrogel. Biomaterials 2013; 34(28):6785-96

Induction of erythropoiesis using human vascular networks genetically-engineered for controlled erythropoietin release. Blood 2011; 118(20):5420-8

Requirements:

  • PhD, ScD or equivalent degree
  • A record of innovative research
  • Demonstrated skills in stem cell and iPSC culture
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills
  • Experience with cell culture and animal models
  • Strong interest in regenerative medicine

To apply, please submit cover letter and CV including name and contact information of at least three references to Dr. Melero-Martin (juan.meleromartin@childrens.harvard.edu). Salary will be commensurate with experience.
