Position description

The Regenerative Neurobiology group at Mayo Clinic is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to investigate mechanisms of adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) therapy in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

These studies will utilize data and biospecimens from Phase I (completed – PMID: 27784774) and Phase II (ongoing - https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03268603) clinical trials of intrathecal autologous adipose-derived MSCs in ALS. Our preliminary in vitro and ex vivo studies suggest that MSCs secrete growth factors and modulate the immune system in patients with ALS, and future studies will extend and build upon this work.

A Research Fellow at Mayo Clinic is a temporary position intended to provide training and education in research. Individuals will train in the research program of a Mayo Clinic principal investigator. Qualified individuals will demonstrate the potential for research as evidenced by their training and peer-reviewed publications and should become competitive for national research grants. Proof of English proficiency is required for J-1 Short-Term Scholars, Research Scholars, Professors, Specialists, and Student Interns sponsored by Mayo Clinic.

Qualifications
Must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent doctoral degree in a field deemed relevant by the program. Research Fellow is appropriate for individuals who have completed no more than one prior postdoctoral fellowship, at Mayo Clinic or elsewhere.
