The Gerecht Lab is relocating to Duke University in Jan 2022 and is looking for a Postdoctoral Associate to conduct applied research and development in the area of vascular engineering, materials sciences, and stem cell biology. The majority of the candidate’s focus will be on developing and using biomaterials to guide vascular fate and regeneration from stem cells. This work will be completed as part of our multidisciplinary team studying the interactions between cells and their microenvironments with the long-term goal of understanding how the microenvironment guides vascular differentiation, migration, morphogenesis, homeostasis, repair, and function toward controlling these processes in healthy and diseased tissues in regenerative medicine and cancer. This position is available starting Jan 1, 2022 with a 1-year term and opportunity for additional annual renewal contingent on performance and funding availability.

Minimum Requirements:

-Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Life sciences, or another related field and have significant research experience in biomaterials.

-Expert knowledge of polymer synthesis, hydrogel fabrication and characterization, protein biochemistry and drug release.

-Experience with tissue culture technologies or animal studies

-Knowledge of stem cells
