The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of California, San
Francisco announces an opening for a post-doctoral fellowship that will
focus on musculoskeletal tissue engineering utilizing mesenchymal stem
cells. The successful candidate will apply the principles of bioengineering
and biology to generate/develop innovative technologies that restore,
maintain, or improve the function of human skeletal and connective tissues.
Research may include the design and growth of tissues outside the body for
later implantation, the implantation of cell-containing or cell-free
devices, or the development of external or internal devices containing human
tissues designed to improve function. This position will be supported by two
current NIH grants that focus on stem cell characterization and
intervertebral disc regeneration.

Candidates should have background in bioengineering and molecular biology
with a focus on biomaterials and cell/matrix interactions. He/she should
have a strong record or research activity, the proven capacity to attract
research funding, and will be expected to have leadership and administrative
abilities in a multidisciplinary environment. Candidate will be expected to
serve as a research supervisor for doctoral candidates, and interact with
students and faculty at all levels.
