Yale University School of Medicine ポスドク募集

Position in the laboratory of Dr. Yibing Qyang

A postdoctoral position is available in the area of cardiovascular (CV) stem cell biology. We are striving to ameliorate heart disease utilizing a novel population of CV stem cells, coupled with embryonic stem (ES) cells, high-throughput chemical screening and tissue engineering. Current ongoing projects cover the following areas:

1. Characterize novel signaling pathways implicated in the regulation of this novel population of CV stem cells during heart development with murine models (Laugwitz et al., Nature 433, 647-53; Qyang et al., Cell Stem Cell 1, 165-79, 2007).

2. Derive CV stem cells from human embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) and patient specific stem cells, utilize bio-degradable scaffold to establish engineered heart tissues (EHT) with these cells, and examine their contribution to heart repair and regeneration in animal models.

3. Establish assays for high-throughput small molecule screens to directly reprogram heart fibroblast (scar-forming cells) and quiescent adult epicardial cells into CV stem cells, respectively.

Essential Qualifications: The successful candidate must have a doctoral degree in related areas. Experience in studying embryonic development or heart physiology with animal models is required. Expertise in studying heart development with murine models is highly preferred, but not required.

Interested candidates should submit their CV including names and contact information for three references and a short description of their doctoral training and future research goals.
