An exciting job opportunity as a Postdoctoral Research Associate is available at Newcastle University, between the Institute of Genetic Medicine (IGM) and the School of Computing (CS). The RA will conduct experimental work in a multidisciplinary team, comprising Dr Roman Bauer (CS), Prof. Majlinda Lako (IGM) and Prof. Evelyne Sernagor (Institute of Neuroscience).

You will work on a project studying the impact of cryopreservation on different kinds of biological tissues. Cryogenic processing protocols will be tested and assessed using a wide range of experimental methods, taking into account anatomy, gene expression and electrical activity. The goal of the project led by Dr Roman Bauer, in collaboration with GE Healthcare and CERN, is to model and improve tissue cryopreservation to yield high-quality post-thaw tissue.

You will hold a PhD in a bioscience discipline and have experience in several experimental techniques, which can be for instance immunohistochemistry, primary cell/tissue culture, qPCR and/or pluripotent stem cell differentiation. Ideally, you will also have experience in at least one electrophysiology method, e.g. in patch clamp or multi-electrode array (MEA) recording.

You will be highly ambitious, have excellent written and spoken English language skills, the ability to present clearly your work, supervise students and collaborate efficiently in a multidisciplinary team. You will have the opportunity to learn new experimental techniques (e.g. organoid growth or MEA recordings from retina), develop leadership skills or quantitative or computational skills if you wish.

The post is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and tenable for 32 months on a full-time basis. As part of your application, please provide a CV and covering letter which details your prior experience in experimental work.

Postdoc for millimeter-scale cryofluidic systems

Postdoc at Stanford University Stanford

Postdoc position for millimeter-scale cryofluidic systems
Stanford University 
Applications accepted until position is filled. 
We are seeking a joint postdoctoral fellow or research engineer to help develop millimeter-scale cryofluidic systems for working with and handling functional biomaterials (i.e., cells, cultures, environmental samples). Ideal candidate should be able to work independently, and also with a diverse team of scientists, engineers, and designers to rapidly prototype and iterate on the design and testing of integrated systems (i.e., build a 'box', test a 'box', debug and repeat). Expertise and prior experience in working with fluids in low temperature systems (e.g., -80C) and interfacing low temperature fluidic systems to other mechanical and electronic systems strongly desired. 
Please contact Sindy Tang (Mechanical Engineering, [email protected]) and Drew Endy (Bioengineering, [email protected]) if available and interested along with 1) your CV, 2) a statement describing why you are interested and qualified for the position, and 3) a list of names and contact information of references.

Bull Semen Cryopreservation Postdoc

Postdoc Position for Bull Semen Cryopreservation Optimization

The Benson Cryobiology laboratory at the University of Saskatchewan, in collaboration with SEMEX, Inc in Quebecc, is offering a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship to an applicant interested in using novel interdisciplinary techniques to optimize bull semen cryopreservation. The successful candidate will work towards bull semen cryopreservation media optimization by determining biophysical parameters, cryoprotectant toxicities, and toxicity minimizing agents. Then they will use these components in a novel way to determine optimal cryoprotectant media equilibration protocols leading to successful post thaw recovery. This interdisciplinary project combines basic sperm science with mathematical modeling and optimization in an applied setting with access to large donor, recipient, and data pools.
