Broadly speaking, the Stem Cell team at the Stanley Center leverages human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) biology and in vitro differentiation in order to investigate causal relationships between disease-associated genetic variants and neuronal phenotypes. This includes using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines as well as CRISPR/Cas9-based genome engineering technology, and we are searching for a talented and responsible stem cell biologist to support these efforts. The candidate's background must demonstrate a proven ability to work collaboratively and to contribute to high quality research projects at predetermined milestones.
PRINCIPAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
