  • 11/15/15--23:47: Postdoctoral Researcher
  • Positions available in the Urological Diseases Research Center, Boston Children’s Hospital


    Postdoctoral research positions are available in the Mauney laboratory within the Urological Diseases Research Center at Boston Children's Hospital. Studies in our laboratory are focused on the design of silk fibroin grafts for hollow organ tissue engineering including tissues of the urinary and digestive tract. Both small (rodent) and large (swine and sheep) animal models of tissue repair in the bladder, urethra, small intestine, and esophagus are employed.  In addition, our laboratory explores the mechanisms of constructive remodeling of tissue engineered constructs by delineating how host tissue microenvironments interact, populate, and integrate into scaffold environments in vivo.  Our group synergizes the expertise of clinicians, bioengineers, and molecular biologists in a dynamic research environment to produce clinically-viable biomaterials. Experience with small/large animal surgery and husbandry is required.  Pathology, biomaterials, and/or immunological expertise is recommended.  The candidate should be able to work independently as well as with a team of investigators. Excellent communication skills, both oral and written, are essential and an established publication record in tissue engineering is desired. English proficiency is required. This is an outstanding opportunity for persons interested in ultimately pursuing a medical and/or bioengineering career path. Applicants must have an MD, PhD, and/or DVM.  The positions are available immediately. Interested candidates should send a CV, a brief summary of research experience and interests, and names of three references to:
