Postdoctoral Positions – iPS cells and muscle regeneration

Two postdoctoral researcher positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Rita Perlingeiro at the Lillehei Heart Institute, University of Minnesota, to study skeletal muscle differentiation from pluripotent stem cells (Cell Stem Cell, 10:610, 2012; Nat. Comm. 4:1549, 2013; Cell Reports, 19:2867, 2017). One project is focused on gene editing of patient-specific LGMD2I iPS cells, and the other on the development and optimization of cGMP iPS-derived myogenic progenitors for clinical trial readiness.

Highly qualified and motivated investigators (Ph.D. and/or M.D.) with experience in cell culture, gene editing, cell purification strategies (FACS and MACS), immunohistochemistry and/or animal handling will be preferred. Experience with human pluripotent stem cells would be highly desirable. Candidates should send a letter of interest including a CV and the names of three references to:
