An NIH-R01 funded postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Ellen Lien to study coronary and cardiac lymphatic vessel development and heart regeneration. We have demonstrated that zebrafish is an excellent model to study coronary vessel development and re-vascularization during heart regeneration (Harrison et al. Dev. Cell 2015). For this specific position, the candidate will use zebrafish, cell culture, and/or mice to elucidate molecular mechanisms of coronary/cardiac lymphatic vessel development and the roles of coronary and lymphatic vessels in heart regeneration. A background in molecular biology, genetics and/or cell biology is required. Previous experience with generating transgenic and CRISPR mutant zebrafish is preferred but not required. Experience in performing in situ hybridization and/or cell culture is also preferred. Our laboratory is part of the large community of stem cell and regenerative medicine research at University of Southern California and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and we encourage multidisciplinary approach and interactions. We provide excellent salary, benefits and career development opportunities. Please send CV and names and contact information of 3 references to:
