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 angiogenenesis and lymphangiogenesis. The project investigates candidate genes found to control angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis in the mouse eye. These candidate genes were identified through genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of inbred mouse strains. 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. Intimate knowledge of complex trait genomics is desired. 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.
