2. Research experience in biomaterials and/or mammalian cell culture and characterization methods
3. Good publication record
4. Good scientific communication skills
1. Research experience with the isolation and/or culture of human cells, including stem cells (MSC or IPS), intestinal cells, or cells of the immune system (e.g. monocytes, macrophages, T-cells)
This is a 11-month position with a targeted start date of November 2015. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications.
