150 150 Office of Research Trainees

University Health Network (UHN) is looking for an experienced professional to fill the key role of  Postdoctoral Fellow in the McEwen Stem Cell Institute

This Postdoctoral research position is available in the Protze lab which focuses on the development and disease of the cardiac conduction system that regulates the heartbeat. We are establishing new developmental biology-based methods for the differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells into cell types of the conduction system, including sinoatrial node and atrioventricular node pacemaker cells. In order to test the ability of these pacemaker populations to function as biological pacemakers in cell therapy approaches, we are using in vivo and ex viva cardiovascular animal models.

Qualifications:

  • PhD awarded within past 5 years or an MD within 10 years
  • Background in electrophysiology
  • Experience in optical mapping of electrical signals
  • Experience in cell culture techniques
