Postdoctoral Position in Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine
The Ito Laboratory at the Ruth L. and David S. Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is actively seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows. Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate the maintenance of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and leukemia-initiating cells (LICs; also referred to as leukemia stem cells). Specifically, we aim to identify novel regulatory mechanisms for stem cell fate and maintenance, and in turn open new therapeutic avenues for the pharmacological manipulation of the normal and leukemic stem cell function. Projects in the laboratory is to illuminate through both genetic and pharmacological approaches the role of one such potential regulatory element, cellular metabolism and epigenetic regulation, in the cell fate decisions of self-renewing stem cells. The laboratory employs a wide range of stem cell analysis with specialized skill sets, genomic technologies as well as classical cellular and molecular biology approaches to investigate the normal stem cell biology at single cell level and the pathogenesis of specific human stem cell disorders.
Applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent. A strong training background in hematology, stem cell biology and/or cancer biology, molecular and cell biology is preferred. To apply, please email CV, a summary of the previous research experience and the future research interest, and the contact information of three references to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
