Postdoctoral Associate, Immunoengineering and Vascular Bioengineering
University at Buffalo, the State University of New York
We are looking for a well-trained post-doctoral fellow to work on an exciting NIH funded project at the intersection of vascular bioengineering and immunoengineering. The project seeks to understand the role of immune cells, specifically monocyte/macrophages of the host on regeneration of vascular grafts. Working knowledge with cell culture, molecular biology (cloning, gene editing etc.) and animal work experience is expected. Experience with bioinformatic analysis is highly desirable. The candidate is expected to work collaboratively with others in our team, have excellent oral communications and writing skills and have strong work ethic.
Responsibilities will include:
The post-doctoral scholar will perform research related to the project “Cell-free vascular grafts: immunological response and vascular regeneration”
Perform experiments that involve cell culture, molecular biology, advanced imaging and animal experiments
Perform high throughput experiments involving transcriptomic and metabolomic methods as well as bioinformatic analysis
Mentor and collaborate with undergraduate/MS students and PhD candidates on research.
Participate in lab organization and lab meetings
Write research proposals
Write quarterly scientific reports and manuscripts to be published in peer reviewed scientific journals
