Primary Category: Research 
Type of Position: Postdoctoral

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.
