Postdoc positions are available in the Center for Musculoskeletal Research at the University of Rochester Medical Center. The successful candidate will participate in research projects recently funded by NIH. The projects involve using multiphoton microscopy as a live imaging platform to understand the interactions between vascular progenitors and mesenchymal progenitors during skeletal repair and regeneration. The study integrates bone tissue engineering, vascular biology, and skeletal biology. The successful candidates must have a MD or PhD degree in biomedical science with published experience in any of these fields: molecular biology, cell biology, tissue engineering, electrospinning/3D writing, or transgenic animal work. Recent graduates will receive substantially more favorable consideration. Prior experience with bone biology, small animal surgery or cell sorting is a plus. To apply: please send C.V. and names of three references to:
