Notch signaling in angiogenesis and tumor biology
The Kitajewski lab is seeking motivated scientists with experience in angiogenesis, tumor biology, or signal transduction. We are recruiting postdoctoral scientists for NIH and DoD-funded projects on Notch signaling in endothelium and in tumor microenvironment. Projects will focus on (1) transcriptomic analysis of Notch signaling in developmental and tumor vasculature and (2) therapeutic targeting of the tumor microenvironment and metastasis. Individuals with a backgrounds in vascular, developmental, systems, or tumor biology, or experience in endothelial cell biology or mouse genetic models will be highly considered.
The Kitajewski lab is a multidisciplinary group investigating angiogenic signaling with complementary in vitro, in vivo, and in silico approaches. Collaborations will be available within the lab and our network of external collaborators. Candidates will be given opportunities for leadership commensurate with their accomplishments. The University of Illinois in Chicago offers superb research facilities with outstanding access to cutting-edge equipment and established networks for clinical collaborations. Chicago is a vibrant and affordable city with world-class cultural institutions, walkable neighborhoods, and limitless culinary adventures.
Candidates must have a doctoral degree and excellent verbal and written communication skills. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
