The Wells lab seek motivated collaborative postdoctoral fellows to investigate single cell genomics of human GI organoids in regenerative medicine. Studies will focus on bioengineering nextgen multilineage 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.
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is a premier pediatric research institution with over 900 diverse and productive faculty members. Here, researchers work collaboratively across specialties and divisions to address some of the biggest challenges we face today in improving child health. A strong network of research support services and facilities, along with institutional commitment to research, push our team of faculty, postdocs and support staff to explore the boundaries of what is possible, leading to significant breakthroughs. We are driven by our mission to improve child health and transform the delivery of care through fully integrated, globally recognized research, education and innovation.
Preferred: 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.
At Cincinnati Children’s, we come to work with one goal: to make children’s health better. We believe in a team approach, both in caring for patients and their families, and in advancing science and discovery. We strive to do better, and find energy and inspiration in our shared purpose. If you want to be the best you can be, you can do it at Cincinnati Children’s.
