The Center for Regenerative and Developmental Biology is dedicated to the advancement of basic biology and biomedicine, and to becoming a leader in basic, translational, and clinical research using biophysical mechanisms to ultimately regenerate and control the growth of human tissues. This novel technology is aimed at replacing tissues and organs that are lost, damaged, or non-functional as a result of genetic syndromes, birth defects, cancer, degenerative neural diseases, accidents, aging, and organ failure. Medical applications of this approach include craniofacial, neural, cardiovascular, liver, and kidney diseases. The emphasis of the Center is unique in contemporary medicine, achieving repair through novel biophysical approaches that do not rely on the use of human embryonic material such as stem cells. The center will attract the best minds in diverse synergistic fields including biology, physics, and computer modeling.
What You'll Do
This is a grant funded and limited term position, ending March 10, 2024 and subject to continued renewal with additional funding.
Under the general supervision of the director, the Research Associate will provide key support to the varied research efforts of the lab. The Research Associate contributes ideas and suggestions, operates with a high degree of independence, develops and maintains research protocols, and contributes to manuscript preparation. This individual will have other responsibilites in the laboratory including the training and oversight of graduate students or postdoctural fellows in laboratory technique and animal husbandry.
What We're Looking For
- Knowledge and skills as typically acquired by a PhD, MD, DVM, DDS, DMD or equivalent degree and least 2 years experience in a postdoctoral research position
- The individual should be comfortable with Windows Office Suite software and with searching for information in on-line databases
- Experience in laboratory operations, molecular biology techniques, and development of experimental protocols.
