A postdoctoral position is immediately available to pursue cutting-edge musculoskeletal stem cell research in the laboratory of Kathryn Wagner, MD, PhD at the Center for Genetic Muscle Disorders, Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine,
The Wagner laboratory is a moderate-size laboratory that focuses on translational science to develop novel therapies for muscle disorders. Approaches include small molecules, biologics, stem cells and gene therapy. The laboratory is part of a Senator Paul Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Cooperative Research Center and has extensive collaboration both within Johns Hopkins and across institutions. https://www.thewagnerlab.org.
The ideal applicant will have a PhD in molecular or cell biology. Experience in skeletal muscle is a positive but not a requirement. This is a fully funded position to study transplantation of iPSC-derived myogenic progenitors in models of muscular dystrophy and volumetric muscle loss.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter and CV to Dr. Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org
