OSU Department of Pediatrics (Nationwide Children's Hospital)

Postdoctoral Fellow Positions in Epigenetics, 3D Bioprinting, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology, Bioengineering, and Blood Cancers: Columbus, OH, United States.

Dhvanit Shah Lab

Columbus, Ohio, OH, United States

Multiple postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Dhvanit Shah Laboratory

(www.shahlaboratory.org) at the Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases, Nationwide

Childrens Hospital & Ohio State University, Columbus OH, United States.


The Shah laboratory provides a dynamic microenvironment that offers excellent opportunities for

intellectual exchange and collaborations among investigators from diverse fields. We investigate

the origin, development, and differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), and their utility in

treating patients with blood and bone marrow diseases. We have expertise in utilizing zebrafish,

mice, and human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to analyze novel genes and mechanisms

important for blood formation. Our goals are to utilize our knowledge in developing cellular- and

mechanism-based therapies as well as generating functional HSCs for the treatment of

hematological diseases.


Position # 1: Epigenetics of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Development and Disorders.

The ideal candidate will have Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. in Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cells,

Immunotherapy, Hematology, Oncology, and/or Biology. This position offers an excellent

opportunity to learn and apply skills in epigenetics, directed differentiation of human induced

pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), HSC transplant, xenograft, computational biology, high-throughput

screening, gene-editing, and/or molecular and cellular biology techniques.


Position # 2: Bioengineering of 4D or 3D Tissue Scaffold Development.

The ideal candidate will have Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. in Tissue Engineering, Biomaterials,

Biophysics, Machine Learning, Systems Biology, Chemical Engineering, and/or Drug

Development. This position offers an excellent opportunity to learn and apply skills in organoid

development, 3D bio-printing, Bio-MEMS, artificial intelligence, microfluidics, proteomics, and/or

medicinal chemistry.


Strong background in one or more of these areas is preferred but not required. Qualified candidate

should be able to work independently as well as in a group environment.


Interested candidates should send their cover letter, CV, and contact details of three references

to:
