The Joy Wu Laboratory ( seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow interested in single-cell profiling of the bone marrow microenvironment. Bone-forming osteoblasts play a critical role in supporting both normal hematopoiesis and cancer bone metastases. We are using single-cell RNA sequencing and mass cytometry (CyTOF) to interrogate the bone marrow microenvironment in response to genetic and pharmacologic approaches to increasing bone formation. Understanding the interactions of the osteoblast lineage with hematopoietic and cancer cells has clinical implications for hematopoiesis, immunity, and cancer metastases.
The qualified candidate will work in a highly collaborative and rigorous research environment. The Wu lab is part of the Department of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine and is housed within a community of scientists and physician-scientists in newly renovated facilities within Stanford Research Park. Stanford University offers a world-class academic environment with a vibrant and large community of postdoctoral fellows ( We are located in Palo Alto, California, which has a beautiful mild climate year-round and abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation and cultural experiences, while being a within a short drive to San Francisco.
The Wu Lab is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in biomedical research and encourages all to apply.
