Postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Daniel Greif in the Departments of Medicine and Genetics at Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, CT, USA. Our lab focuses on vascular development and disease as well as myofibroblasts in lung development and fibrotic disease. We apply basic developmental biology, genetic/genomic and biochemical approaches to uncover key insights into the morphogenesis and pathogenesis of the blood vessel wall during development and diseases. We have a strong interest in expanding our studies into single cell analysis, computational biology and human genetics/genomics. 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, molecular biology, microscopy, computational biology. A strong interest in vascular and/or lung biology is required. Candidates must be receiving a PhD, MD or MD/PhD degree prior to starting the postdoc (or have recently earned such a degree) and be fluent in English and extremely hardworking and self-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: email@example.com
