The newly established Scanlon Lab in the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Skeletal Development at UConn Health is seeking highly motivated and well-trained individuals in hematopoiesis to receive individually tailored post-doctoral training and mentorship. The lab’s research focuses on factors that influence human hematopoietic progenitor cell expansion and lineage commitment, with a particular interest in intercellular signals arising from the bone marrow microenvironment. As a subscriber of #MentorFirst, the lab environment hosts multiple opportunities to hone mentorship skills with more junior trainees and is dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion in academic research. Candidates with previous experience in cell culture, transduction, flow cytometry and fluorescent microscopy are highly encouraged to apply! Successful applicants will receive holistic training in rigorous science, regular mentorship, professional development opportunities (ie. Leadership training), and networking opportunities (through participation in multiple international professional societies) to advance their career goals. Located between Boston and New York, with a much more affordable cost of living and fantastic public schools, Connecticut is a great place to live and raise a family!
