Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Medicine is seeking an early Postdoctoral Research Associate (Postdoc) in the areas of cell and molecular biology to work on projects focusing on the mechanisms and molecular regulation of proliferation and/or differentiation of adult stem/progenitor cells. The main goal of the research is to promote the growth and differentiation of adult human stem/progenitor cells for the treatment of congenital heart defects or of degenerative retinal diseases.
The Postdoc will be performing experimental procedures, analyzing data, maintaining records and developing new assays. The Postdoc must be experienced in performing basic mammalian cell and tissue culture techniques, cell/molecular biology techniques such as protein or nucleic acid extraction, RT-PCR, ELISA, Western blotting, or cell-based assays, and imaging studies involving immunocytochemistry and fluorescent/confocal microscopy. The lab is equipped with state-of-theart
technology for ultrasensitive, highly-quantitative measurements of protein expression, subcellular localization, and protein phosphorylation using recently-developed capillary electrophoresis- and microscopy-based methodologies.
