Postdoctoral Fellow – Human hematopoietic development

Posted by , on 16 August 2020

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Multiple postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Christopher Sturgeon, at the Black Family Stem Cell Institute, within the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York, NY.

We have developed novel human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) directed differentiation strategies that generate extra-embryonic and intra-embryonic like hematopoietic progenitors. Several research projects are available, all focused on the translational potential of these hPSC-derived hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells.  Possible projects range from the development of hPSC-derived adoptive immunotherapies, epigenetic and post-transcriptional regulation of hematopoietic development, and the characterization of engraftable hematopoietic populations.

The applicant will be responsible for managing their own projects as well as collaborating both within the Sturgeon laboratory, and with other local groups. Applicants should have a PhD or MD and demonstrated relevant research experience and publication record. Excellent verbal and written English communication skills are essential. A background in either hematopoiesis, immunology, developmental biology, or cell biology is preferred, but not required. Previous bioinformatics or murine xenograft assays would be an asset.

Our newly renovated lab space is furnished with our own cell culture suite and FACS. We are well-funded, and aim to recruit 3 postdoctoral fellows for several exciting projects. Interested applicants should send a current CV, statement of research interests, and 2-3 contacts for reference letters, to Christopher Sturgeon (
