A postdoc/research staff scientist position is available immediately in the Center for Musculoskeletal Research at the University of Rochester Medical Center. The successful candidate will participate in research program that involves using multiphoton microscopy and intravital imaging as a platform to study cellular and molecular mechanisms that orchestrate osteogenesis and angiogenesis during repair and regeneration. The project integrates bone tissue engineering, vascular biology, and skeletal biology with emphasis on blood vessel specification in regeneration. The candidate will utilize genetic, imaging and engineering models to study bone progenitor cells interaction with angiogenic cells.
Strong candidate should have a PhD or equivalent degree and must have prior research experience in biomedical research. He or she should demonstrate commitment to musculoskeletal research.Published experience with bone biology or skeletal tissue is preferred. Prior experience with transgenic mice and small animal surgery is a plus. To apply: please send C.V. and names of three references to:
