A postdoc position is available in the Heemskerk lab, Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the University of Michigan Medical School.
We are looking for a postdoc that shares our excitement about using stem cells to discover the developmental mechanisms underlying embryogenesis and organogenesis. The lab is highly interdisciplinary and combines experimental and theoretical methods from biology, physics, and engineering, focusing on quantitative live-cell measurements to study spatial organization and cell fate determination in human pluripotent stem cells.
The broader institutional environment of the University of Michigan – the public university with the highest research spending in the United States – provides exceptional resources for professional development and trailblazing scientific exploration. The university is located in Ann Arbor, which is consistently named among cities with the highest quality of life in the US.
The successful candidate is a rigorous thinker with either a relevant biology background and strong interest in quantitative methods, or a quantitative background (e.g. physics, engineering, math) and strong interest in wet lab biology.
