Post-doctoral position available in Gerlinde Wernig's lab

A funded post-doctoral position is immediately available in the lab of Professor Gerlinde Wernig in the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine and the Department of Pathology at Stanford. Projects in the lab focus on pathogenesis of fibrosis and chronic inflammation, a disease of aging, and interactions with the immune system. Examples of diseases we study are lung fibrosis, scleroderma, liver cirrhosis, heart fibrosis, kidney and bone marrow fibrosis, but also contributions of fibrosis to cancer/ tumor microenvironment with a view towards gaining mechanistic insights and translating findings to the clinic. Previous expertise and/or interest in regenerative medicine, next-gen sequencing technologies, and genomics with a focus on treatments for fibrotic diseases. Ideal candidates should be scientifically rigorous, collaborative, and eager to learn about new fields and techniques.


Laboratory/Department: The Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine and the Department of Pathology is a collaborative multi-laboratory work space that pushes the cutting edge of technology to answer new and exciting biological questions. In our lab and through vital collaborations we have acquired world-class expertise in multi-parametric analysis of cell types using CyTOF, Spectral flowcytometry, antibody seq and single cell RNA sequencing and next generation mass spec, which we integrate with epigenomic profiling and mouse genetics and disease modeling to yield novel insights into fibrotic diseases with a focus on the therapeutic potential of immune treatments against fibrosis. Located in the midst of a vibrant academic research community at Stanford School of Medicine, itself at the center of Silicon Valley. 


Applicant must have Ph.D. in Biological Sciences, M.D. or M.D./Ph.D.   The candidate should be a highly qualified scientist with excellent written and verbal communication skills.  Experience  in stem cell biology and molecular biology highly desirable. Applicants should submit a current CV to Dr. Gerlinde Wernig, Please also check out our webpage.
