Postdoctoral Position to Study Blood Vessel Morphogenesis

The Astrof laboratory at Rutgers University is recruiting a highly-motivated individual to study roles of cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions in cardiovascular development and congenital heart disease. We have recently discovered vascular progenitors that give rise the endothelium of the pharyngeal arch arteries (Dev Biol 421:102–111, 2017), the nascent vessels that become remodeled to form the aortic arch arteries. Projects in the lab focus on the role of ECM in regulating the differentiation of vascular progenitors and their recruitment to pharyngeal arches to form the pharyngeal arch arteries. The successful candidate will combine genetic manipulation, embryology, cell biology, and confocal imaging to study molecular mechanisms by which cell-ECM interactions and tissue microenvironment regulate cardiovascular development. Additional projects focus on the investigation of cell type-specific and cell-autonomous functions of fibronectin in development and signaling (Development 143:88-100, 2016). Interested candidates should send their CV and the names of three references to Sophie.astrof@rutgers.edu
