Vacancy: Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in tissue engineering, cell therapy and regenerative medicine.
Location: Department of Pediatric Surgery, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Texas, USA
Closing Date: Position open until filled

The Program in Children’s Regenerative Medicine in the Department of Pediatric Surgery at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for its Cellular Therapeutics Translational Laboratory and Human Cell Processing cGMP Facility. The successful candidate will report to the Director of the facilities and must be able to work, with minimal supervision, on translational research projects related to tissue engineering, cell therapy and regenerative medicine. Among primary responsibilities, the incumbent will be responsible for the development of improved vitrification solutions and conditions for cells and/or tissues and transitioning innovative tissue engineering therapeutic approaches from experimental pre-clinical models to clinical applications. After proper training, additional responsibilities will include participating in the production of clinical grade, cell and tissue engineered products. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in a relevant scientific discipline, research experience in cryobiology and vitrification technology, a keen interest in stem cells, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, and experience with pre-clinical studies using animal models as well as with aseptic methods of harvesting, purification, processing, culture, storage and characterization of human stem cells. He/she will be strongly motivated to work both independently and as a team member in a highly interactive and dynamic research environment, with a proven ability to conduct and publish research and an enthusiasm to learn and develop new techniques. This position will work closely with physicians, scientists, experts in regulatory issues and process development, and other postdoctoral fellows within the Program of Regenerative Medicine.

The Program has over 5,000 square feet of state of the art, fully-equipped basic laboratory and tissue engineering facilities as well as over 2,500 square feet of cGMP laboratories for production of clinical grade, cell and tissue engineered products. This initiative will help to save children’s lives and improve the quality of their lives by developing techniques and therapies to repair damaged organs or birth defects in children.

To apply, please provide a cover letter with a brief description of your research background and interests, and a Curriculum Vitae with the contact information for 3 professional references to Dr. Fabio Triolo ( with a CC to Stephanie Baca (

Vacancy: Postdoctoral position is available in a project on cryopreservation of ovarian tissues and improvement of cryopreservation by antifreeze proteins
Location: The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, Rehovot, ISRAEL
Closing Date: Until filled
We are looking for an enthusiastic and independent excellent researcher to work an exciting project on cryopreservation of bovine ovarian tissues and/or bovine embryos including antifreeze proteins use for improvement of the cryopreservation process. Experience in working with ovarian tissue and/or embryo preservation is preferred.  Other relevant experience will be considered. Academic excellence is an advantage. Applications that include CV and contact information of three referees should be submitted to Prof. Ido Braslavsky at

Vacancy: Plant Research Post-doctoral Fellowship
Location: Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW), Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, Cincinnati, OH, USA
Closing Date: May 15th, or until filled.

The successful candidate will conduct basic and applied research and provide technical skills necessary to carry out the goals of a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services entitled: Evaluating Two Decades of Seeds, Spores, and Tissues in CREW's CryoBioBank: Cryostorage as a Tool for Ex Situ Conservation in Botanical Gardens

The candidate will work to recover in vitro tissues from cryostorage, evaluate growth, regenerate culture lines, and re-bank samples.  A major focus will be on analyzing the data from this large study in relation to species, genotype, age, original viability, sample preparation, number of replicates, and storage location, and to examine the relationship of these factors to survival. Other duties will include working with Horticulture and Education staff to provide plants from this project and background information for display.  Further duties will involve working with other members of the project team, managing staff, preparing scientific papers, reports, and presentations.
