Title:  Postdoctoral Associate

Division:  Molecular and Human Genetics
Schedule:  Monday - Friday
Work Location:  Texas Medical Center, Houston, TX
Salary Range:  up to $58,608
FLSA Status:  Exempt
Requisition ID:  8219


A full-time postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Dongsu Park in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics and the Center for Skeletal Medicine and Biology at the Baylor College of Medicine. We are seeking a highly motivated research fellow interested in studying skeletal biology, particularly stem/progenitor cells responsible for bone/tendon development, regeneration, and bone marrow HSC microenvironment.

The laboratory utilizes multiple approaches including genetic mouse models and advanced intravital imaging technology to track and define stem/progenitor cells and their microenvironmental cells. New and on-going projects funded by NIH focus on the fundamental questions about the identity, heterogeneity, and molecular characteristics of stem/progenitor cells in the skeletal tissues in vivo and cell-autonomous and microenvironmental mechanisms that regulate stem cell function in aging and bone diseases. 


The position provides an ample opportunity to work at the interface of basic stem cell research, new scRNA-seq analysis, and cutting-edge imaging technology in a collaborative and stimulating environment at the Baylor College of Medicine in Texas Medical Center community.

Applicants should have strong foundation and publication record in cell and developmental biology. Prior experience in mouse genetics and bone imaging, multi-color flow cytometry, and scRNA-Seq will be preferred.

Job Duties

  • Plans, directs and conducts specialized and advanced research experiments.
  • Evaluates and analyzes data.
  • May establish new research protocols and procedures.
  • Summarizes research findings and publish results in research journals. 
  • May be responsible for laboratory operations.
  • May supervise research staff.

Minimum Qualifications

  • MD or Ph.D. in Basic Science, Health Science, or a related field.
  • No experience required.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience in cell and developmental biology.
  • Experience in mouse genetics and bone imaging, multi-color flow cytometry, and scRNA-Seq.
