Postdoctoral Position

Notch signaling in angiogenesis and tumor microenvironment

The Kitajewski lab is seeking highly motivated and thoughtful postdoctoral scientists with experience in angiogenesis and/or tumor biology. The postdocs will study Notch signaling and function in physiological and tumor endothelium and during tumor metastasis. We are recruiting for two recently funded projects:
1) Transcriptomic analysis of Notch signaling in blood and lymphatic endothelium.
2) Therapeutic targeting of Notch to inhibit tumor angiogenesis and metastasis


Individuals with a background in angiogenesis, tumor biology, transcriptomics, signal transduction, or developmental biology will be considered. Experience with mouse genetic models or endothelial cell signaling is highly desirable.


The postdoctoral scientist will join a multidisciplinary group investigating angiogenic signaling with complementary in vitro, in vivo, and in silico approaches. The University of Illinois at Chicago offers superb research facilities with outstanding access to cutting-edge equipment and established networks for collaborations. Chicago is a vibrant and affordable city with world-class cultural institutions, walkable neighborhoods, and culinary adventures.


Candidates must have a doctoral degree and excellent verbal and written communication skills. Salary will be commensurate with experience.


Email curriculum vitae, brief statement of experience, and names of three references to: kitaj@uic.edu and naiche@uic.edu
