Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Daniel Greif at Yale Cardiovascular Research Center at the Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, CT, USA. Our laboratory focuses on vascular development and disease and recently lung myofibroblasts in development and fibrotic disease as well. We apply basic developmental, genetic/genomic and biochemical approaches to uncover key insights into the morphogenesis of the blood vessel wall during development, the maintenance of the adult vascular wall and diseases of the vasculature. We currently have projects focusing on the following areas: i) pulmonary vasculature and pulmonary hypertension; ii) atherosclerosis, aorta and elastin arteriopathy; iii) cerebral vasculature and intracranial hemorrhage; and iv) lung myofibroblasts in development and fibrotic disease. The ideal candidate will have a solid background in genetics/genomics, gene regulation, developmental and molecular biology (including prior work with genetically engineered mice), microscopy and a strong interest in vascular and/or lung biology. Candidates must anticipate a PhD or MD or MD/PhD degree prior to starting the postdoc (or have recently earned such a degree ) and be fluent in English, extremely hardworking and motivated to pursue top-notch scientific investigation.
Competitive salary and excellent work environment at Yale University. Please send a CV, statement of research interests and names and contact information of three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org
