Postdoctoral Scholar- Tissue Engineering & Stem Cell Biology- Dr. Quinton Smith Group

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of California, Irvine invites highly motivated applicants interested in the intersection of stem cell biology and tissue engineering for the postdoctoral scholar position in The Smith Lab ( Projects are focused on building in vitro systems to study gastrulation, tissue morphogenesis, and vascularization of stem cell-derived organoid tissues. Implications of this work include elucidating the mechanisms of early embryonic developmental events towards hepatic and vascular tissues, to appraising the therapeutic efficacy of engineered cellular constructs. Candidates with proficiency in developmental biology, stem cell culture, materials science, and/or microfluidics are highly preferred and should should have a Ph.D. in a discipline that reflects these interest areas, with a matched record of peer-reviewed publications. Essential traits include the ability to work in a team environment, and strong oral and communication skills.

Ideal applicants should have expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Biology in vitro methods (i.e., gene expression, flow cytometry, gene editing)
  • Stem cell or organoid culture
  • Biomaterial synthesis and characterization
  • 3D printing/photolithography
  • Murine model manipulation and characterization

    The trainee will work in a collaborative environment with access to resources such as the Integrated Nanosystems Research Facility (INRF) and the Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center (SCRC).

    Interested candidates should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for at least three references through our online recruiting system RECRUIT at through our online recruiting system.
