Collaboration Type: Job
Collaboration Title: Postdoctoral Fellowship
Date Available: 07/01/2021
Location: Winston-Salem, NC, USA
Description: Job Location: Wake Forest Plastic Surgery Research Laboratory (WFPSRL), Department of Plastic Surgery, Wake Forest School of Medicine

Start: July 1, 2021

The WFPSRL has an opening for a highly creative and motivated postdoctoral fellow with an interest in adipose-derived cell biology. Successful candidates will join the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine.

Among other areas, our group’s research activities include efforts directed toward the development of novel approaches to tissue repair, replacement and regeneration using adipose-derived cells and factors.

Our laboratory employs: cell isolation, cell/tissue culture, functional in vitro cell assays, histology, Flow cytometry, molecular biology, and various rodent and porcine models.

The primary project will focus on:

1. Elucidating how different adipose handling/processing steps impacts SVF cell composition

2. Understanding how different SVF cell composition impacts bio-activity/function (e.g. angiogenic, immune-modulatory) in-vivo.

3. Development of ideas that enable translation of findings into novel devices and/or clinical application.


The applicant must be an MD, PhD or MD/PhD graduate ideally with:

• Outstanding personal initiative and communication skills, including experience and/or ability to prepare manuscripts and/or grants for peer review

• Strong publication record in peer-reviewed journals

• Excellent cell biology skills

• Minimum of 1-year commitment, but preferably 2 years

Candidates with experience in human sample handling are encouraged to apply.
Contact: Candidates should email an updated CV, complete contact information for three references and a cover letter describing their past research experience, career goals and a statement of future research interest (~ 1/2 – 1 page) to Farren Adams at fadams@wakehealth.edu
