The Orthopaedic Bioengineering Laboratory at the University of California, San Francisco (Dr. Jeffrey Lotz, PI) is seeking a qualified applicant for the position of Post-doctoral Fellow who is available to work immediately. The fellowship will focus on intervertebral disc tissue engineering and will involve performing cell culture (cell harvesting from human and animal tissues, cell culturing, embedding cells in scaffolds), RNA and quantitative PCR analysis, protein analysis of intervertebral disc cells, and small animal surgery.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. and must have experience with: 1) cell cultures; 2) PCR analysis; and 3) ELISA analysis.

This is a full-time position of at least 1 year, with benefits. It presents a great opportunity for individuals interested in building a career in orthopaedic tissue engineering. It is particularly ideal for those interested in working in a multi-disciplinary environment, collaborating with clinical faculty in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and interfacing with industry. Interested individuals should contact Dr. Jeffrey Lotz (LotzJ@orthosurg.ucsf.edu) and send an updated CV and cover letter.
