Molecular Neuro-otology and Biotechnology Laboratory seeks
Experienced Stem Cell Biologist
We are looking for an outstanding stem cell biologist with a strong scientific background and proven accomplishments in deriving and differentiating human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) into neural cell types for functional genomics, target validation, and drug screening with a focus on neurodegenerative disorders and hearing loss. The ideal candidate will be responsible for the maintenance, differentiation and characterization of human pluripotent stem cell-derived lines. Extensive hands-on experience in working with neurons and/or Schwann cells, developing complex functional assays, small molecule screening, and high-content imaging is preferred. Experience with molecular techniques (including quantitative RT-PCR, ELISA, and western blotting) is required. Excellent multi-tasking skills, attention to detail and ability to work independently are required. Strong communication and people skills are required as well as a desire to work in a fast-paced, highly collaborative, translational research group working at the interface of neuroscience, stem cell biology, and novel therapeutic development.
