University of Colorado School of Medicine
A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The position is offered in the laboratories of Drs. Peter J. Koch and Maranke Koster (www.medschool.ucdenver.edu/PeterKoch, www.medschool.ucdenver.edu/MarankeKoster ). The fellow will join our efforts to develop
human cell-based disease models for inherited skin disorders (ectodermal dysplasias) using stem cell (iPSC) technology. The position will initially be offered for a period of 2 years.
The successful candidate will optimize existing methods to generate keratinocytes from patient-derived iPS cells. 2D and 3D cultures of these keratinocytes will then be used to analyze disease mechanisms. Standard procedures in cell biology (e.g. proliferation, migration, cell-cell adhesion, cell-ECM adhesion), biochemistry (e.g. Western blotting, immunoprecipitation) and transcriptome analysis will be employed.
A working knowledge of the cell biological and biochemical analysis of keratinocytes is required. Further, the successful candidate will have extensive experience in primary keratinocyte culture. Candidates with experience in stem cell culture (ESC or iPSC) will be given special consideration.
• PhD in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, or similar fields.
• Minimum of 3 years research experience in a cell biology
• Prior successful working experience using a wide range of cellular biology techniques and protein biochemistry techniques.
• Experience in keratinocyte cell culture
• Comfortable using mice as a model system
• Excellent communication skills using the English language.
• The ability to work independently within the research laboratory.
Salary range is commensurate with skills and experience.
