Regenerative BiosciencesPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-May-23
The Henry M. Jackson Foundation (HJF) is seeking a highly-motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to support of the Department of Defense (DoD) - Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Extremity Trauma & Amputation Center of Excellence (EACE). HJF provides scientific, technical, and programmatic support services to the EACE.
The EACE is a one-of-a-kind organization within the DoD and VA consisting of teams of researchers embedded at the point of care within multiple Military Treatment Facilities across the nation. In line with the congressionally directed mission of the EACE, the research efforts undertaken focus on the mitigation, treatment and rehabilitation of traumatic extremity injuries and amputations with a specific focus on translating their findings into clinical practice to improve the care of injured Servicemembers and Veterans.
This Postdoctoral Researcher position is located within the EACE Regenerative Biosciences Laboratory at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) & Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) located in Bethesda, Maryland. These world class institution offers a full suite of infrastructure and facilities which are ideally suited for a wide variety of research activities (i.e., bench to bedside). Importantly, the EACE USUHS/WRNMMC multidisciplinary team is comprised of basic and translational scientists of varying educational background, and clinicians from across the medical spectrum, which when taken together, provides a privileged perspective of the injury conditions that challenge wounded Servicemembers.
Within the Department of Surgery at USUHS/WRNMMC, the EACE Regenerative Biosciences Laboratory primarily focus on the development and evaluation of next generation regenerative medicine technologies for the treatment of combat related extremity trauma. In particular, in vitro approaches as well as clinically relevant small and large animal models of volumetric muscle loss, composite tissue injury, post traumatic osteoarthritis are utilized to generate the knowledge required to translate promising technologies into clinical practice.
Note, US Citizenship and a personnel security background investigation are required.Responsibilities:
Experience in the fields of regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, cellular / molecular immunology, cell biology, or related fields is required. Proficiency with contemporary biomedical wet lab methodology and small and/or large animal models are also required. Specific research background in the area of extremity trauma is highly desired. A track record of publication and excellent technical writing skills are preferred.Minimum Education/Experience:
