  • Postdoctoral Research Position (heart valve morphogenesis): Butcher Lab

    Butcher Lab
    Posted:

    Applications are now being sought for a postdoctoral research position to study mechanisms by which mechanical forces control embryonic morphogenesis in the heart and its valves. Cornell University has a long history as a pioneering innovator of optical physics based technology for biomedical applications. Our team has developed novel multiphoton-guided photoablation technology to non-invasively perturb developing embryonic heart structures in live embryos, and quantitatively assess their downstream hemodynamic and biological response. We further have developed experimental tools directly measure the local changes in mechanical properties of embryonic soft tissues in situ, as well as computational analysis platforms to quantify these on a global scale. We integrate this information with more controlled mechanistic studies using engineered tissue models of morphogenesis, quantitatively analyzing the biological response on a number of length scales.

    This NIH funded position will pursue one or more of the following broad research goals: 1) Elucidate the in vivo mechanobiological regulatory network governing embryonic heart morphogenesis via localized hemodynamic perturbation in vivo, 2) Determine the interrelationships between growth factor signaling and mechanical stimulation in the normal and abnormal development of cardiac tissues. 3) Integrate the global and local biomechanical and molecular datasets in developing embryonic hearts towards a multi-scale computational model of valve and/or outflow tract morphogenesis.

    Ideal candidates should have a PhD or equivalent degree with experience in live animal imaging, computational modeling, and/or 3D culture mechanobiology. Experience with cardiovascular and/or developmental biology is a plus.

    The Brito lab at Cornell University's Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering works in the area of systems biology of the human microbiome. The lab is developing new technological methods to capture additional genomic information than what is currently available using metagenomic shotgun approaches. It is also engaged in engineering the human microbiome to achieve specific therapeutic outcomes. The lab focuses on a range of questions from basic science to those more translational in nature, and works with clinical collaborators at Weill Cornell Medicine and the Cornell Veterinary School, as well as collaborations across campus.

    The Brito Lab is looking for talented postdocs to fill two open positions for postdoctoral researchers interested in investigating mechanistic linkages between microbes and human health outcomes. Postdoctoral candidates can have an experimental or computational background, or both. One of the positions will be focused on engineering—any experience with synthetic biology or biomaterials is a plus. There are a range of projects in the lab relating to: clinically relevant populations (i.e. inflammatory bowel and neutropenic patients); environmental transmission of organisms and antibiotic resistance; genetic engineering of bacteria; and international research related to the microbiome. The lab strives on the diverse backgrounds of students and postdocs (e.g. microbiology, biomedical engineering, computational biology and genetics). Start dates are flexible, but could be as early as this Fall or Spring. Interested late-stage graduate students or recently-obtained PhDs, should send Ilana Brito (ibrito@cornell.edu) a cover letter and CV. Promising candidates will be invited for an interview.

    Multiple positions for postdoctoral researchers in the Schaffer-Nishimura Lab.

    In the Schaffer-Nishimura Lab, we take a multidisciplinary approach to studying the in vivo cellular behaviors that underlie health and disease. We develop optics-based tools and techniques to enable detailed studies of cellular motion, interactions, and function, all in living animals. These approaches enable us to study the cellular behaviors that drive normal and disease physiology in ways not previously possible, with major research projects in neuroscience and the neurobiology of disease, cardiovascular disease, and stem cell biology.

    We have openings for talented post-doctoral researchers in several projects:

    *Advancing the use of three-photon microscopy for imaging neural activity in the brain and spinal cord of mice and using this approach to elucidate the neural activity patterns that encode limb motion while walking over simple and complex terrain.

    *Developing optical methods to record activity from large ensembles of individual neurons using spectral information from multiple variants of genetically encoded voltage and calcium indicators, with applications in both neuroscience research and neuroprosthetics.

    *Understanding age-related deficits in how the stem cell niche recovers from damage using time-lapse, in vivo, multiphoton microscopy of intestinal crypts through abdominal windows in mice.

    *Using in vivo imaging to study the causes and consequences of microvascular blood flow disruptions in animal models of neurodegenerative disease, with the goal of identifying novel therapeutic approaches.

    The SN Lab fosters a highly interdisciplinary and diverse research environment, with current lab members coming from six continents and having research backgrounds that include physics, engineering, computer science, neuroscience, physiology, and medicine. We encourage applications from researchers with physics, engineering, or other quantitative backgrounds who are interested in learning to apply their skills to biological problems, as well as from researchers with a life science or biomedical research background who are interested in learning to use state-of-the-art optical approaches to elucidate cellular behaviors. Candidates must have completed a PhD in a relevant field by the start date. Positions are available now, but we will have some flexibility for start dates. Interested candidates should send a cover letter and CV to Nozomi Nishimura (nn62@cornell.edu) and Chris Schaffer (cs385@cornell.edu). The most promising candidates will be invited for an on-site interview.
