The Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research conducts basic science and translational research within the Department of Pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine. The Wells Center houses more than 200 faculty investigators, staff, and trainees seeking answers to the most pressing questions related to childhood illness.
With the collaboration between scientists and physicians, the center aims to increase knowledge of causes and mechanisms of serious pediatric diseases. Our goal is to develop innovative approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of sick children in Indiana and beyond.
The Gene and Cell Therapy Program at Indiana University's Wells Center for Pediatric Research is seeking to hire highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to conduct research in gene and cell therapy. Projects range from adeno-associated viral (AAV) gene transfer for the treatment of genetic disease, mechanisms of immune responses to vectors and therapeutic gene products, to organ-specific immunity and immune tolerance. Candidates should have a track record in gene therapy or virology and/or immunology. The postdoctoral scientists will be asked to present their findings locally and at national meetings and are expected to generate manuscripts for publication in high-quality scientific journals. For further information, see Nat Commun 12:6769; Mol Ther Methods Clin Dev 23:98; Mol Ther 28:709; Mol Ther 28:758; Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 117:1678; Blood 129:3184, among other publications.
As the nation's largest medical school, IUSM is committed to being an institution that not only reflects the diversity of the learners we teach and the patient populations we serve, but also pursues the values of diversity, equity and inclusion that inform academic excellence. We desire candidates who enhance our representational diversity, as well as those whose work contributes to equitable and inclusive learning and working environments for our students, staff, and faculty. IUSM strives to take an anti-racist stance, regularly evaluating and updating its policies, procedures, and practices to confer equitable opportunities for contribution and advancement for all members of our community. We invite individuals who will join us in our mission to advance racial equity to transform health and wellbeing for all throughout the state of Indiana.
