Job Description

The Panda and Engle Labs are recruiting for a joint post-doctoral position to study connective tissue regeneration. In this fully funded collaboration, we are seeking to identify conditions, cell types, and factors that promote muscle or tendon repair and regeneration using three-dimensional organoid models. Ultimately, we will test the ability of these factors to optimize performance and accelerate repair in pre-clinical models.

Ideal candidates should be intellectually curious, well-organized and well-versed in constructive problem solving. Experience with organoids, connective tissue biology and mouse modeling is preferred.


  • Large, multidisciplinary team project with multiple opportunities for integration, collaboration, and networking
  • State-of-the-art organoid pharmacotyping experience
  • Potential for translation to pre-clinical models and beyond
  • Joint mentorship from Dr. Panda and Dr. Engle, including training in scientific communication and writing, experimental design, and project management



  • Maintenance and biobanking of organoids
  • Performance of biologics and compound screening in organoids and data analyses
  • Preparation of data summaries and reports
  • Train and coordinate with other team members
  • Team meeting attendance and data presentation
  • Participation in scientific conferences and symposia
