The Echeverri lab at the MBL seeks a highly motivated individual to join the Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering as a Postdoctoral Researcher. The successful candidate will work on the evolution of molecular mechanisms of scar free skin regeneration in axolotls. The position is for one year.
The specific goal of the project is to examine the role of different cell types and signaling molecules in responding to injury cues. The aim is to translate findings from axolotls into mammalian models of wound healing.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a biology related field. Must have prior experience working in the field of cell and developmental biology, as well as experience with molecular biology. Must be independent, enthusiastic, self-motivated, productive, and enjoy working in a highly collaborative environment.
The ideal candidate will have direct experience with working in vivo in an animal model. Previous experience with cell culture, molecular biology and imaging would be a plus.
1. Cover letter explaining specifically why you are interested in joining our lab to work on this project and what positive qualities you would bring to our team.
2. Curriculum vitae.
3. List of 3 references (Please do not have letters sent at this time. Letter writers will be contacted directly by the PI)
