Job Description

Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM)

A multidisciplinary team in the laboratory of Dr. Aaron Zorn is seeking to recruit a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to spearhead research investigating the molecular and cellular basis of trachea-esophageal birth defects using animal models and human organoids.

 The goal is to understand how the how the trachea and esophagus arise from the embryonic foregut during fetal development and to model how genetic mutations in patients can disrupt this process leading to life threatening congenital birth defects. 

The Zorn lab is part of the new Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (<>) and the Division of Developmental Biology at Cincinnati Children s Hospital, one of the top pediatric research institutions in the world. 

Qualified applicants will have a PhD with peer review research publications, a demonstrated expertise in cell biology, morphogenesis or biomechanics, and a keen interest to establish an independent research program in development and stem cell biology.
