Scholarship Description:

The Department of Physiology is seeking a highly motivated and skilled Postdoctoral Researcher to join our dynamic team at Medical College of Wisconsin, Chun Liu lab ( Our research focuses on unraveling the complexities of cardiovascular diseases using state-of-the-art technologies, including induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) models and CRISPR/Cas9 screening. This position will primarily contribute to projects aimed at dissecting novel regulators in cardiovascular diseases through CRISPR screening and iPSC.

 Available Subjects:

  • Develop and characterize iPSC-derived cardiovascular disease models.
  • Design and execute CRISPR-based high-throughput screens to identify key genetic regulators in cardiovascular diseases.
  • Analyze and interpret next generation sequencing data from CRISPR screens.
  • Collaborate with a multidisciplinary team to integrate findings into broader research initiatives.
  • Contribute to manuscript writing and present findings at national and international conferences.
  • Assist in the preparation of grant proposals.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Experience with cell culture, molecular techniques, immunohistochemical staining, Western blot.
  • Experience with handling of laboratory animals is preferred.
  • Experience with cardiovascular-related techniques is preferred.
  • Experience with CRISPR, induced-pluripotent stem cell culture, and/or -omics is a plus.
  • Required knowledge: biology, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, documentation, records management, data utilization, complex problem solving, critical     thinking, resource management, and writing skills

Application Procedure:

Interested applicants should send their curriculum vitae (CV) and contact details of three referees to the following email address: [email protected].
