The laboratory welcomes graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, undergraduates, and other research professionals. Specific positions are advertised on this page as they become available:

Postdoctoral Position in Cardiac Tissue Chip Technology

Drug discovery and development are hampered by high cost and failure rates attributed to the reliance on non-human animal models employed during safety and efficacy testing. My group is developing in vitro tissue platforms for: drug discovery; drug-induced proarrhythmia and toxicity screening; drug-biomarker pairing; and, for identifying drug-drug and drug-gene interactions. A postdoctoral position is immediately available to use our cardiac tissue chips to evaluate drug-induced proarrhythmia, specifically with chemotherapy drugs. The postdoctoral fellow will be tasked with: (1) generating iPSC-derived cardiac tissue chips; and, (2) performing in-chip functional electrophysiology and tissue mechanics analyses as a function of molecular exposure. Postdoctoral candidates with a recent PhD in molecular and cell biology, bioengineering, or a related field are encouraged to apply. Experience with human cardiomyocyte biology is essential.

To apply, please send resume and names of two references to: Dr. Kevin E. Healy (kehealy@berkeley.edu)

Postdoctoral Position in Cardiac Tissue Gene Editing

A postdoctoral position is immediately available to work on gene editing therapeutic efficiency for novel Cas9 ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes. The RNPs efficacy will be evaluated using cardiac tissue chips, which are anatomically relevant 3D cell cultures where we can mechanistically dissect the process of RNP internalization and DNA repair in human cardiac muscle. The postdoctoral fellow will be tasked with: (1) generating iPSC-derived cardiac tissue; and, (2) performing functional electrophysiology, metabolism, and tissue mechanics analyses as a function of RNP exposure. Postdoctoral candidates with a recent PhD in molecular and cell biology, bioengineering, or a related field are encouraged to apply. Experience with human cardiomyocyte biology is essential.
