Postdoctoral position in ex vivo perfusion and regenerative medicine
The laboratory of Dr. Nicolas Noiseux MD, MSc, FRCSC at the CHUM Research Center is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow (PDF) to contribute to a translational research program focused on increasing the number of organs for transplantation and improving the clinical outcomes of regenerative medicine.
The laboratory is seeking enthusiastic scientists interested in contributing to the development of next-generation technologies in transplantation, combining ex vivo organ perfusion and pharmacological conditioning of cells and organs. This opportunity requires the fellow to work with cardiac, thoracic and hepatobiliary surgical and research teams as well as with industrial partners. This is intended to be a growth position geared primarily towards PDFs interested in a university-industry transition path.
