One postdoctoral position is available at the Nicoli Lab, Department of Internal Medicine and Pharmacology, Yale University, New Haven, CT USA.
The goal of our laboratory is to combine zebrafish genetics, genomics and live-microscopy to uncover RNA-based mechanisms controlling cardiovascular function. Our laboratory contributes to vascular, developmental biology and miRNAs functions (Dev. Cell 2017, SciReports 2016, Dev. Cell 2015, Cell Reports 2015). To see full profile visit our web site at nicolilab.com.
Projects available for the candidate:
1) Define RNA-based regulations occurring during mechanotransduction. Mechanism and phenotype related to cardiovascular tissue mechanics will be prioritized.
2) Phenotypic and functional analysis of multigene miRNA family zebrafish mutants in vivo and in vitro. Phenotypes related to hematopoiesis, vascular remodeling, lymphatic developments and neurovascular unit function will be prioritized.
Candidates with excellent molecular biology and microscopy skills will be considered. Computational skills are preferable but not necessary. Candidates are required to have strong interpersonal skills and outstanding written and spoken English to collaborate with a diverse team of scientists. Qualified candidates should have recently accomplished their Ph.D. degree (possibly no more than 1 year).
Candidates should send their Curriculum Vitae and a cover letter summarizing:
- A description of their accomplishments.
- Their research interests in RNA and/or Development and/or Vascular Biology.
- Contact information for three references to:
