A postdoctoral position is available to study stress-induced hematopoiesis in murine models of infection and disease. Research is aimed at clarifying the mechanisms leading to functional changes in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells during infection and in models of chronic inflammation. Experience in immunology, cell biology, microbiology, and/or stem cell biology required, and experience working with murine models of infection preferred. Looking for a highly motivated, independent, and creative thinker who has strong communication and organization skills. Candidates with recently awarded PhDs (within the last year) preferred.
Expertise in flow cytometry, immunofluoresence, microscopy, and imaging is an advantage. Albany Medical College has a close relationship with the New York State Department of Health’s Wadsworth Laboratories, providing a diverse environment rich in infectious disease expertise.
Albany is a mid-sized city within the upstate New York Capital Region, and has easy access to Boston, New York City, and the Adirondack and Berkshire Mountains.
Interested candidates please apply by providing: a cover letter (outlining your scientific interests), your curriculum vitae, and the complete contact information for three individuals who can be contacted for letters of reference.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School Location: Boston, USA Position: Fellowship
A postdoctoral research fellow position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Trista E. North to study hematopoietic (blood) development and homeostasis.
The laboratory is currently investigating intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms that control the induction, growth and differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) using the zebrafish model system. Additionally, we examine the role of these pathways in regulating HSC proliferation, engraftment and function in vitro and in the adult marrow niche using zebrafish, mouse and human cell sources. For additional information on our research and links to publications, please see the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) faculty page: http://www.hsci.harvard.edu/principal-faculty or our laboratory website: www.fishing4stemcells.org.
The successful candidate must have a PhD and/or MD (or equivalent) and an interest in biomedical research using vertebrate models. Current projects require a background in hematology, metabolism, inflammation and/or cell signaling. Strong prior training in molecular biology, in vivo imaging, in vitro culture and/or zebrafish research is preferred.
Location: Lund, Sweden Position: Postdoctoral Fellowship Topic: Mechanisms governing hematopoietic stem cells and erythropoiesis in health and disease
The research of the Singbrant lab is focused on elucidating mechanisms governing hematopoietic stem cells and erythropoiesis in health and disease, with a specific interest in deriving novel mechanisms to treat forms of refractory anemia. To this end we use human cells and transgenic mouse models, in combination with advanced flow cytometry and cutting-edge transcriptional and molecular analyses (for more information visit: http://www.med.lu.se/labmedlund/molecular_medicine_and_gene_therapy/research_groups/sofie_singbrant_soederberg).
The successful postdoc candidate will independently drive his/her own research project, work collaboratively within the team, supervise students, apply for grants, actively participate in laboratory meetings and journal clubs, as well as present at national and international scientific seminars and meetings.
Duration: The position is funded for up to 2 years. Opportunity and support to apply for extramural funding will be provided. Start date: According to agreement
The Lund Stem Cell Center is a strategic center of excellence in life science with a strong international position in the area of hematopoietic stem cell biology. We offer a stimulating and highly interactive international scientific environment consisting of more than 25 research groups and almost 130 people under "one roof”, investigating different aspects of stem cell biology and hematopoiesis. The official working language is English. The Lund Stem Cell Center provides a strong infrastructure with core facilities and technical platforms including ES/iPS Cell Core, FACS Core, Single-Cell Genomics Facility, Vector core and Bioinformatics. Furthermore, all PhD students and postdocs at the Stem Cell Center have access to the Lund Research School in Stem Cell Biology (RSSCB) offering in-depth educational sessions, seminar series, advanced training courses, and workshops.

Candidates who are currently finishing up their PhD thesis work are encouraged to apply. The PhD degree should not be more than three years old at the last day of applying, and the applicant should not have been employed by Lund University within the last two years in order to be eligible to receive a scholarship.
Please submit your application to Assistant Professor Sofie Singbrant (email@example.com) containing 1) a motivated letter of application, 2) CV including education, work/research experience, language skills, other skills relevant for the position, 3) full list of publications, and 4) contact details for at least 2 references.
Boston Children's Hospital/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute,
Harvard Medical School
Location: Boston, USA Position: Postdoctoral Training Position
Topic: Gene regulation in normal and malignant hematopoiesis; leukemia predisposition syndromes:
The Cantor Laboratory at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School is currently accepting applications for entry-level post-doctoral training positions. The lab focuses on further elucidating the basic transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that underlie normal hematopoietic stem cell fate decisions and terminal maturation. We also seek to understand how the dysregulation of these processes contributes to human leukemogenesis and other blood disorders, and to translate these findings into novel therapeutic approaches. One current focus is on leukemia predisposition syndromes and clonal hematopoiesis. We utilize a variety of approaches including biochemical, genomic, genome editing, mouse modeling, human primary cell systems, iPS cell systems, and human genetics to study these questions.
Candidates should have recently (within ~1 year) obtained a PhD or an MD/PhD degree in the fields of Molecular Biology, Cellular Biology, Biochemistry, Development, or Genetics. The candidate should have evidence of prior productive scientific work in the form of publications in peer-reviewed journals. Prior experience in the study of gene regulation, hematopoiesis, DNA damage response/repair, genotoxic stress, and/or use of mouse models is preferred.
U.S. citizenship or Permanent Resident status (i.e., “Green Card” holders) is not necessary, but is preferred.
