City: Bethesda
State: Maryland
Primary Category: Research 
Type of Position: Postdoctoral Positions

Job Posting #1: Angiogenesis and Lymphangiogenesis

Description & Details:

A fully funded postdoctoral position is available to study vascular development, angiogenesis, and lymphangiogenesis in the zebrafish in the laboratory of Dr. Brant Weinstein in the NICHD Division of Developmental Biology (DDB) in Bethesda, Maryland.  The Weinstein laboratory uses a variety of molecular, cellular, genetic, transgenic, microscopic imaging, and next-gen sequencing approaches to study the specification, patterning, and differentiation of developing blood and lymphatic vessels.  Some of our current areas of research interest include endothelial specification and differentiation, assembly of vascular networks and the cues that guide their patterning; morphogenesis of vascular tubes, regulation of vascular integrity, and isolation and molecular characterization of novel vascular-specific mutants. The scientific environment, resources, and stipend support for this position are superb. Learn more about our current research.

Qualifications:

Interested applicants should have a Ph.D. or M.D. and less than 3 years' postdoctoral experience.

To Apply:

Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae, bibliography, cover letter with a brief description of research experience and interests, and the names of 3 references (with phone numbers) via e-mail to weinsteb@mail.nih.gov and to amy.parkhurst@nih.gov.


Job Posting #2: Studying the meninges and the neurovascular interface in the zebrafish

Description & Details:

A fully funded postdoctoral position is available to study the developmental and function of the brain meninges and/or the neurovascular unit in the zebrafish in the laboratory of Dr. Brant Weinstein in the NICHD Division of Developmental Biology (DDB) in Bethesda, Maryland.  The Weinstein laboratory uses a variety of cutting-edge molecular, cellular, genetic, transgenic, microscopic imaging, and next-gen sequencing approaches to study the meninges and meninges-associated cell types and the brain neurovascular interface.  The scientific environment, resources, and stipend support for this position are superb. Learn more about research in the Weinstein lab.

Qualifications:

Interested applicants should have a Ph.D. or M.D. and less than 3 years' postdoctoral experience.

To Apply:

Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae, bibliography, cover letter with a brief description of research experience and interests, and the names of 3 references (with phone numbers) via e-mail to weinsteb@mail.nih.gov and to amy.parkhurst@nih.gov.


Job Posting #3: Epigenetics of Development

Description & Details:

A fully funded postdoctoral position is available to study epigenetics of development using zebrafish as well as cavefish, mouse, and cell culture models in the laboratory of Dr. Brant Weinstein in the NICHD Division of Developmental Biology (DDB) in Bethesda, Maryland.  The Weinstein laboratory uses a variety of cutting-edge molecular, cellular, genetic, transgenic, microscopic imaging, and next-gen sequencing approaches to study the role of epigenetics during development.  In addition to other related studies, the laboratory is currently carrying out the first-ever large scale genetic screen for vertebrate tissue specific epigenetic regulatory genes using a novel “EpiTag” transgenic epigenetic reporter line.  The scientific environment, resources, and stipend support for this position are superb.  Learn more about research in the Weinstein lab.
