Platelets, Inflammation and Cardiovascular Disease

NYU Langone Health

New York, NY, United States

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the platelet laboratory of Jeffrey S. Berger, MD, MS, at NYU Langone Health’s Leon H. Charney Division of Cardiology. Our laboratory is dedicated to elucidating the mechanism and regulation of platelet mediated complications, in atherogenesis, thrombosis and inflammatory diseases.

Platelets are key players in the fields of thrombosis & hemostasis, inflammation and immune activation. Using a combination of human studies, mouse models, and cell culture, we investigate novel signaling pathways in platelets that contribute to cardiovascular risk and other inflammatory diseases. The successful candidate will investigate novel and targetable signaling pathways in platelets. The postdoc joins a dedicated and hardworking team determined to reach results that change the way we treat cardiovascular disease and inflammatory diseases (J Am Coll Cardiol 2018;71:53-65; Science Translational Medicine 2019Sci Adv. 2021 Sept 10)

The ideal candidate holds a PhD and/or an MD in biological sciences or biomedical-related fields. Candidates must have a solid background in one or more of the following fields: thrombosis and hemostasis, immunology, and/or genetics. We are looking for a creative and driven individual with a strong publication record, ideally with expertise in platelet physiology, cardiovascular research, molecular biology, flow cytometry, and/or cellular imaging/microscopy. Previous experience in high throughput sequencing (e.g. RNA-seq, ATAC-seq) is highly desired. Applicants with murine and animal microsurgery experience are encouraged to apply.

To apply or to obtain more information about the position, please contact Dr. Berger at jeffrey.berger@nyumc.org. Applicants should include a CV, brief statement of research background, and the names of three references.
