Description & Details:

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jingli Cao at Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell University in New York City. The Cao lab is located in the Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI) and the Department of Cell & Developmental Biology. We aim to understand the basic mechanism of innate tissue regeneration by focusing on heart regeneration. The lab uses a combination of zebrafish model, explant tissue culture, human stem cells, high-throughput sequencing, chemical screening, live imaging, and genome editing approaches (such as CRISPR/Cas9). Please refer to our website ( ) and recent publications for further information (Dev. Cell, 2017. 42: 600; Nat.

Weill Cornell Medical College offers subsidized housing and excellent benefits.


Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent. Highly motivated individuals with interests in the field of tissue regeneration, heart disease and repair, human stem cells, and zebrafish model are encouraged to apply. The candidates with research experience in cell biology, developmental biology, and animal models are preferred, but not required.
