Job Description

Dr. Elizabeth Loboa has an immediate opening in her lab for a highly motivated individual with a strong background in human stem cells and cell biology. The post-doctoral fellow will examine the role of the extracellular calcium sensing receptor in differentiation of human adipose derived stem cells (hASC) for osteochondral tissue engineering applications. Both in vitro and in vivo (porcine model) evaluations will be performed using hASC-seeded 3D-printed, electrospun, and/or decellularized extracellular matrix materials. Further investigations may include functional tissue engineering using hASC in the presence of multi-drug resistant bacteria.


PhD in the field of molecular/cellular biology, biochemistry, or biomedical engineering. Strong oral and written communication skills are required as well as the ability to work independently. Please apply for this job if your research background has significant overlap with the following: tissue engineering, hASC and/or human bone marrow derived stem cell technology, musculoskeletal medicine, cell biology, biomaterial design and characterization, bioreactor systems for cell culture, and animal models of disease.
