Available Positions

 

Postdoctoral Fellow in Genetics and Vascular Biology

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to study the genetic control of ocular angiogenesis. The project investigates candidate genes that were identified through genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of inbred mouse strains and further validated in zebrafish. The fellow will lead a program to verify and elucidate the mechanism of action of these genes.

The ideal postdoc candidate (MD or PhD) will require a strong background in mammalian genetics and laboratory experience in molecular and cell biology techniques with an interest in vascular biology and ophthalmology. Candidates should be able to work independently and have strong english writing skills. Salary is commensurate with experience. Position is available immediately for two years with potential for renewal and is fully funded with benefits.

If interested, please send a CV with a statement of research interests, as well as the names and contact information for three references via email to robert.damato@childrens.harvard.edu
