Postdoctoral fellowship positions are available in New York City at the Weill Cornell Medical College Department of Surgery in the laboratory of Marco Seandel, M.D., Ph.D.

The focus of the lab is to identify and characterize novel signals emanating from the microenvironment (or niche) that affect self-renewal and reprogramming of stem cells & cancer stem cells and human disease pathogenesis. The principle models utilized in the laboratory include adult murine and human germline stem cells, human endothelial cells, solid tumor cell lines, primary human tumor tissue, and mouse models. Projects will entail manipulation of gene expression in the aforementioned systems using both classical and novel molecular tools in conjunction with cell culture, biochemical, and in vivo assays (stem cell transplantation and xenograft). Candidate pathways will be addressed in parallel with on-going chemical and genetic screens.

The candidate must be highly motivated, have a PhD or MD degree, a strong background in molecular biology and cell biology and publications in internationally recognized journals. Applicants should be fluent in English and be available for an interview. Experience in cell culture is an absolute prerequisite; some experience in stem cell biology strongly preferred.

Please send a cover letter, brief description of research experience and interests, curriculum vitae and contact information for three references via email to Marco Seandel, MD, PhD., email address:
