|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 groupâ€™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:
â€¢ Outstanding personal initiative and communication skills, including experience and/or ability to prepare manuscripts and/or grants for peer review
â€¢ Strong publication record in peer-reviewed journals
â€¢ Excellent cell biology skills
â€¢ 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 â€“ 1 page) to Farren Adams at email@example.com|
