    At St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, we provide state-of-the-art technologies, extraordinary support and a collaborative, bench-to-bedside environment. The Director for the Center for Modeling Pediatric Diseases (CMPD) will partner with research programs institution-wide on modeling cancer using patient derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). In this new role, you will establish the infrastructure and workflow to generate and differentiate iPSCs in pediatric cancer, neurological or non-malignant blood diseases. You will be responsible for recruiting a team, developing standard operating procedures (SOPs), and working with faculty on consultation and project coordination.
