A federally funded postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Giuseppe Intini, DDS, PhD at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine.
The laboratory has recently identified the calvarial suture as the niche of osteoprogenitor cells expressing Prx1 (Wilk et al, Stem Cell Reports, 2017), a transcription factor highly expressed during embryonic development, and current research aims at developing novel strategies to activate the niche and foster craniofacial tissue regeneration.
The recently relocated Intini laboratory is part of the University of Pittsburgh Center for Craniofacial Regeneration (CCR) in the School of Dental Medicine and is affiliated to the Harvard Stem Cell Institute in Boston, MA.
The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine is currently ranked 4th in funding received from the NIH/National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
Experience in flow cytometry, histology, fluorescent microscopy, tissue culturing, and handling of small animals is required. Experience with skeletal developmental biology and pathophysiology of skeletal diseases is desirable. PhD, DDS/DMD, or MD is required.
Qualified applicants should send a cover letter describing relevant research experiences and research interests, curriculum vitae, and a contact information of 3 references to Dr. Giuseppe Intini at email@example.com.
