Positions in the Tracy Grikscheit Lab, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

Fully-funded postdoctoral positions are available immediately to study novel models of tissue-engineering and the molecular mechanisms that control regeneration of the gastrointestinal tract in the laboratory of Dr. Tracy Grikscheit in the Developmental Biology and Regenerative Medicine Program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), Keck School of Medicine of USC. The Grikscheit laboratory has investigated the regenerative capacity of adult stem cells of many regions of the gastrointestinal tract and is now extending models of gastrointestinal regeneration to iPS-generated donor cells for regeneration of the intestine and enteric nervous system.

A strong background in biochemical and molecular techniques is essential. Ideal candidates will have an understanding of cellular signaling, intestinal stem cell functions and the tools to evaluate in vivo models of cellular growth.

Candidates must have a recent PhD and/or MD degree and a strong publication record. More information about the lab and current research projects is available at the following links.
