A postdoctoral position is available in the Lawson Lab at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The Lawson Lab takes advantage of the zebrafish as a model system to study multiple aspects of vascular and lymphatic development. Current areas of interests include: origins of endothelial and mural cell heterogeneity, developing zebrafish as a platform to identify small molecule therapeutics, and optimization of genome editing approaches for targeted gene knock-in in zebrafish. Our efforts are supported by a recently awarded R35 grant from NHLBI that provides generous support for the next 7 years. An overview of our past and ongoing research can be found at our website (http://lawsonlab.umassmed.edu).
Applicants must be highly motivated and technically accomplished as documented by exceptional publication record. Candidates must have demonstrated experience in molecular biology. Experience with developmental model systems is preferred.
Please email CV and reprints of relevant publications to the contact information below. Applicants accepted for initial consideration will be subsequently contacted for letters of reference.
