The Blau Lab, in the Baxter Laboratory for Stem Cell Biology, at Stanford University School of Medicine invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow.  We seek highly creative and motivated scientists to perform cutting-edge research on aging and regenerative medicine.
We recently made the groundbreaking discovery that prostaglandin degrading enzyme, 15-PGDH, is a new hallmark of aging  (Palla et al. Science 2021). We now seek to dissect the molecular mechanisms by which 15-PGDH drives aging in muscle and diverse tissues.
Applicants will have the opportunity to work with a stellar team of interdisciplinary scientists. The Baxter Laboratory is a collaborative multi-laboratory workspace that pushes the cutting edge of technology to answer new and exciting biological questions. We employ multi-parametric analysis of cell types using state-of-the-art techniques such as CODEX and CyTOF. The Blau lab integrates genetics, epigenomic profiling, machine learning, and bioengineered cell culture platforms to yield novel insights into stem cell biology, mouse models of disease, and reprogramming with a focus on therapeutic potential. Located amid a vibrant academic research community at Stanford School of Medicine in the center of Silicon Valley.

Required Qualifications: 
  • The postdoctoral position requires a PhD or MD/PhD in Biological Sciences, including Bioengineering.
  • Previous expertise and/or interest in stem cell biology, mouse models, high-throughput sequencing technologies, bioinformatics, and genomics with a focus on treatments for aging and disease is desired.
  • Ideal candidates should be scientifically rigorous, collaborative, and eager to learn about new fields and techniques .
