Postdoctoral Fellowship in Genetics and Vascular Biology at Harvard Medical School: Boston, MA, United States

The D’Amato Lab of the Vascular Biology Program at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to study the genetic control of ocular angiogenesis. The project investigates candidate genes found to control angiogenesis in the mouse eye. These candidate genes 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 (MD or PhD) will have a strong background in molecular and mammalian genetics 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 via email a CV, a statement of research interests, as well as the names and contact information for three references to manchit.leung@childrens.harvard.edu
