Postdoctoral Scholar in Cerebrovascular Disease Research

We are looking for a productive, highly motivated scientist to join our cerebrovascular research team in the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford. Our lab is focused on understanding the underlying disease biology of, and the potential signaling cascades leading to, human brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Our ultimate goal is to better predict disease progression and improve treatments. Our published work suggests that AVMs acquire a partial lymphatic phenotype and there is evidence for an altered micro-environment within the AVMs. Using human AVM samples available at Stanford, lab-derived AVM cell lines, and normal vascular and non-vascular cell lines, we hope to further characterize the cellular environment surrounding the AVM vasculature and to elucidate potential novel contributions of these various cell types to disease. We incorporate a number of approaches, including gene and protein expression, functional assays (proliferation, endothelial tube formation), tissue culture, and immunohisto- and immunocyto-chemistry.

Candidates should have a strong background in cell signaling and (cerebro)vascular biology; inflammation and bioinformatics knowledge would be desireable. Candidates should be independent and have strong English speaking and writing skills. If interested, please forward your CV, a brief statement of research interests, and full contact information for three professional references to Dr. Lori Shoemaker at lshoemaker@stanford.edu.

Stanford is an equal opportunity employer.
