One postdoctoral position is available at Yale Cardiovascular Research Center, Yale University. The individual interested in this position will study the role of miRNAs in endothelial cells diversity and heterogeneity during Zebrafish vascular development.
Projects will utilize multidisciplinary approaches: RNA biology (Hits-Clip, miRNA and RNA deep sequencing profile), genetics (application of Zinc Finger Nuclease/TALEN to generate miRNA mutants) and finally vascular phenotypic characterization of zebrafish embryos.
Candidates must have excellent technical skills, an enthusiasm for using and developing new techniques, and the interpersonal skills to work within a diverse team of scientists. In addition to experimental work, the fellow will be expected to develop collaborations with others within the lab and with other labs, present findings regularly at departmental meetings and national/international scientific conferences and author papers and proposals - including applications for independent grant support. Experience helpful but not required:
- zebrafish development.
- bioinformatics analysis.
Qualified candidates should send a cover letter summarizing their research interests and future career aspiration, CV, description of past research accomplishments, along with contact information for at least 2 references.
