Surgical Research Fellow in Organ Regeneration, Recovery & Replacement

Surgical Research Fellow in Organ Regeneration, Recovery & Replacement

A fully funded two-year research position open for this upcoming academic year (July 2020) is available at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC).

We are seeking a highly talented and motivated surgical resident to join the lung regeneration team focused on the new generation of extracorporeal support technologies and whole organ bioengineering for transplantation. Our laboratory also performs funded research in pulmonary assist devices (PAD), i.e. artificial lung research. Research involves large animal models of disease and surgery as well as the regeneration of rejected human organs.

The position is based in Nashville at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, in the Department of Surgical Sciences, but the laboratory also works in collaboration with Dr. Vunjak-Novakovic at Columbia University and Dr. Keith Cook at Carnegie Mellon University in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Previous surgical residents have been instrumental to this group and have been extremely productive, successful academically with publications in high-impact journals (Nature BME, Nature Communications, JTCVS, PNAS, Science Advances) and gone onto secure highly coveted clinical fellowships.
