Postdoctoral Research Associate at Washington University School of Medicine

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate. Our lab has identified novel regulatory mechanisms of intravascular cell-cell interactions under thromboinflammatory conditions, including atherothrombosis, vascular inflammation, ischemic stroke, and sickle cell disease (Barazia et al. Blood 2015; Kim et al. Blood 2017; Li et al. Circulation 2019; Li et al. JEM 2022). The postdoctoral associate will study the molecular mechanisms regulating neutrophil and platelet activation in thrombosis, inflammation, and/or ischemic stroke using state-of-the-art techniques including, but not limited to, real-time confocal intravital microscopy, gene knockdown/editing systems, animal disease models, CyTOF, and single-cell RNA-seq.

The candidate should have

1. Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree (preference: the candidate who is expected to receive the degree)

2. Previous experience in cell biology and mouse disease models (preference: a mouse model of MCAO-induced ischemic stroke or sepsis)

3. Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English, and

4. First author papers in premier journals

The postdoctoral associate should be eligible for employment in the U.S. Start date is immediate. PI will help the postdoctoral associate develop his/her career by providing a highly interactive and exciting research environment and encouraging the preparation of research papers, the application for postdoctoral fellowships, and participation at national meetings.

For the consideration, please email 1) a statement of career goal (limit: 1 page), 2) a CV (limit: 3 pages), and 3) contact information of 3 referees (email address and phone number) to
