Open Positions

Scientists/Senior Scientists in Stem Cell Research


We are seeking two (2) full time Scientists or Senior Scientists in stem cell and hematopoietic cell biology. Successful candidates will have PhD or MD, PhD/MD degree with hematopoietic cell or human ES/iPS cell research background of at least 1-3+ years of experience in an academic or R&D environment. Experience in human ES/iPS cells of in vitro differentiation, especially mesoderm progenitor differentiation a plus. One position is responsible for investigating the generation, maturation and enucleation of red blood cells derived from hES/iPS cells (see Lu et al: Generation of functional hemangioblasts from human embryonic stem cells. Nature Methods, 4: 501-509, 2007; Lu et al: Biologic properties and enucleation of red blood cells from human embryonic stem cells. Blood, 112:4475-4484, 2008; Feng et al: Hemangioblastic derivatives from human induced pluripotent stem cells exhibit limited expansion and early senescence. Stem Cells, 28:704-712, 2010). Another position is responsible for the generation of functional megakaryocytes/platelets from human ES/iPS cells (see Li et al: Large scale generation of functional megakaryocytes from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) under stromal-free conditions. Blood, 114: Abs. 2540, 2009). The candidate must be creative, independent, highly organized, reliable, with demonstrated ability to initiate and carry out projects, troubleshoot, and quickly learn new skills. Good oral and written communication skills in English required.

Junior or Senior Level Research Associate


We are seeking one (1) full time Junior or Senior Level Research Associate with working experience in cell biology. Successful candidates will have BS/MS degree in a relevant major with previous experience culturing pluripotent stem cells such as human ES cells. Experience with adult stem cells such as hematopoietic a plus; experience with induced pluripotent stem cells highly desirable. The ideal candidate should be capable of independently performing general lab tasks such as culturing a variety of cells, characterization of cells using immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry, PCR, and Western blot analysis with minimal supervision. Preference will be given to well-organized, self-motivated and goal-oriented candidates. Good oral and written communication skills in English required.

Positions are only open to candidates with a green card or USA citizenship.
