Skeletal Mechanobiology & Bone Healing
The Orthopaedic Research Laboratories (PI: Matthew Silva) in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University in Saint Louis has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral research associate in the field of skeletal mechanobiology and bone healing. The associate will work on NIH-funded studies that utilize in vivo models aimed at determining how the skeleton responds to mechanical stimulation and injury. You will join a multidisciplinary orthopaedic research laboratory, part of the 75-member Washington University Musculoskeletal Research Center (http://musculoskeletalcore.wustl.edu/ ). There are strong collaborations between the Silva lab and basic science researchers working in bone and development biology (Drs. R. Civitelli, F. Long, D. Ornitz), as well as clinicians working in orthopaedic trauma.
Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in cell or molecular biology, biomedical engineering, or a closely related field. Preference will be given to applicants with a proven record in musculoskeletal research. Experience working with transgenic/knockout mice and bone histology (IHC, fluorescence, ISH) is a plus. The appointment is for a period of 2 years, with possibility of reappointment.
