Postdoctoral researcher positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Juan Melero-Martin at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The postdoctoral researchers will work on NIH-funded projects to study human pluripotent stem cells’ differentiation into tissue-specific vascular cells for use in regenerative medicine. The overarching goal of the lab is to develop novel approaches to vascularization and tissue regeneration. Work will involve human stem cell culture, molecular biology, and mouse xenograft models.
