    Click here for the PDF version of this job post at Ankasa Regenerative Therapeutics.

    Company Description 

    Ankasa Regenerative Therapeutics is a venture-backed biotech company based in the San Francisco Bay area that is developing novel protein-based stem cell activation therapies to improve tissue repair and regeneration. Stem cell renewal, maintenance and tissue regeneration are critical for normal health and well-being. Wnt pathway interactions are crucial to maintenance of these processes. Ankasa is the first to produce human Wnt proteins in a GMP manufacturing setting suitable for use in humans. 

    Our first clinical approach, under FDA regulation, is the demonstration of improved outcomes after spinal fusion surgeries. Our product has expansion opportunities to other bone reconstructive procedures including osseointegration of dental and orthopedic implants (knee and hip replacements), fracture repair, total joint arthroplasty revisions, and others. 

     Summary / Overall Purpose 

    We seek a highly motivated PhD level scientist with deep expertise in bone regeneration for a post- doctoral position at Ankasa Regenerative Therapeutics. The primary focus of the role will be the characterization of bone cells / grafts in vitro and in vivo following treatment with our lead regenerative agent. Successful candidates will implement robust, reproducible and cost effective protocols to monitor the viability and regenerative capacity of bone cells / grafts from human and animal bone following treatment, utilizing both in vitro and in vivo models of bone repair, while developing a broad based awareness of the requirements and complexities of the regulatory and commercialization processes for novel biologic and “device-like” therapeutics. 

     Essential/Primary Duties, Functions and Responsibilities 

    ▪ Independently design and implement robust, reproducible and cost-effective protocols for the isolation, culture, treatment and analysis of cells / grafts from human and animal bone with meticulous aseptic technique. 

    ▪ Design and implement in vivo studies investigating the regenerative capacity of implanted bone grafts in mice and/or rats (e.g., subrenal capsule implantation, fracture healing, spinal fusion, etc.). 

    ▪ Design and implement in vivo studies looking at the levels of bone regenerative agents detectable following in vivo delivery. 

    ▪ Utilize a battery of assay technologies to characterize bone cells / grafts and therapeutic product disposition, including ELISA, qPCR, flow cytometry, immunofluorescence microscopy and histology. 

    ▪ Independently identify and implement new assays and assay technologies that have an impact 

    Requirements 

    Work Experience: 

    Minimum 4 years laboratory experience as part of a PhD degree program specializing in bone biology/regeneration. 

    Management of Staff 

    Not required; however, ability to work well within a team environment is critical 

    Functional/Technical Knowledge and Skills 

    ▪ Isolation and culture of cells from human and animal bone 

    ▪ Isolation, manipulation and implantation of bone grafts (mice, rats) 

    ▪ Experience with a battery of analytical techniques including qPCR, ELISA, immunofluorescence microscopy, immunohistochemistry and histology 

    Education/Training 

    PhD in biology, biomedical engineering, biochemistry, molecular biology, or closely related field, with specific training in bone biology / regeneration 

    Licenses/Certifications 

    None required 

    Other 

    Work independently on experimental design, execution, and analysis; however, position is well supported by leadership with strong mentoring track record and medical/scientific as well as technology specific expertise; backed by state-of-the-art JLABS infrastructure 

    Excellent verbal and written communication skills and track record of ability to effectively present scientific data 

    Detail oriented; proven track record of detailed, reproducible protocol generation that can be readily transferred to other scientists 

    Positive attitude 

    Keeps calm under pressure 

    Occasional weekend work may be required

    The Biomedical Engineering Department at Northwestern University and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago are seeking to fill a new tenure-track faculty position in the broad area of muscle and neural bioengineering. Investigators using novel engineering approaches to develop clinically translatable interventions for improving neuromuscular function or to understand the biological processes underlying neuromuscular function are encouraged to apply. We are also interested in investigators using multiscale experimental or computational approaches that bridge between cellular and tissue levels, though the scientific excellence of the candidate is more important than the particular area of research. The collaborative environment between RIC and Northwestern, including the McCormick School of Engineering and the Feinberg School of Medicine, is exceptionally strong, providing multiple opportunities for interactions with the large number of faculty carrying out research in neuromuscular function. The successful candidate will be expected to: (1) develop and maintain a distinguished externally-funded research program, (2) contribute to the teaching and advising of graduate and undergraduate students at Northwestern University, and (3) address the vision of RIC to “set the highest standards in scholarly and applied research in physical medicine and rehabilitation.” The appointment will be made at the level of Assistant Professor, though exceptional candidates at the Associate level will be considered. See www.bme.northwestern.edu, http://www.ric.org/research/, and http://www.feinberg.northwestern.edu/ for further information on our faculty and programs. Applicants should upload PDF versions of a brief cover letter, a complete curriculum vitae, the names and contact information for three references, and one statement each of research (up to 3 pages) and teaching (1 page) interests to https://facultysearch.mccormick.nort...ply/index/ODI=. The cover letter should be addressed to the Chair of the Neuromuscular Search Committee. Applications received before November 15, 2015 will receive full consideration but applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The earliest starting date is September 1, 2016.
