A postdoctoral position to study genetic causes of intracranial aneurysms is available in the laboratory of Dr. Saulius Sumanas in the Division of Developmental Biology, at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
The laboratory uses the zebrafish model to validate and study mutant variants associated with intracranial aneurysms which were previously identified in human individuals. The lab also has a long standing interest in the molecular mechanisms of vascular development. We are performing screens for novel potential regulators of vasculature formation followed by their characterization and functional studies. Candidates with a strong background in developmental and molecular biology are invited to apply. Prior experience in zebrafish is helpful but not a requirement.
To apply, please send a CV and contact details of three referees to firstname.lastname@example.org
