Postdoctoral Fellowship - Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM)

The Center for Stem Cell & Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM) at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (Directed by Dr. James Wells and Dr. Aaron Zorn) seek motivated collaborative postdoctoral fellows to investigate single cell genomics of human GI organoids in regenerative medicine. Studies will focus on bioengineering nextgen multi-lineage organoids and defining the genetic/epigenetic regulation of the mesenchymal niche that supports engraftment during transplantation.

CuSTOM (www.cincinnatichildrens.org/custom) is a multi-disciplinary center of excellence integrating developmental and stem cell biologists, clinicians, bioengineers and entrepreneurs with the common goal of accelerating discovery and facilitating bench-to-bedside translation of organoid technology. Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation is the largest pediatric research institute in the world, with a multibillion-dollar endowment and state-of-the-art facilities including a human pluripotent stem cell facility, CRISPR genome editing, single cell genomics, biomedical informatics, a Nikon Center of Excellence and much more.

Successful candidates must hold the PhD, MD, or MD/PhD degrees be highly motivated and have passion for collaborative research. Experience with computational biology and/or human pluripotent stem cells is an advantage. Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, a statement of their research interests, and contact information for three people who will provide letters of recommendation to CuSTOM@cchmc.org.
