The Skeletal Mechanobiology and Regenerative Medicine Lab is seeking highly motivated individuals with experience in stem cell biology, bioinformatics and/or high resolution imaging modalities is desirable. The postdoctoral fellow will work on a large project aimed at determining cell and molecular mechanisms of bone mechanotransduction using in vivo and in vitro experimentation. We are a growing team with a focus on skeletal mechanics and adaptation, cellular mechanotransduction, aging and regeneration. We have an interdisciplinary approach with collaborators in mechanical engineering, bone biology, and orthopaedic surgery. Candidates with a PhD in Bioengineering, Cell and Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics or a related field are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants with a proven record in musculoskeletal research. Preference will be given to individuals with experience using transgenic mouse models and tissue engineering approaches.
