Essential Functions

Postdoctoral Research Associate position in vascular research in the Hematology Division at Washington University School of Medicine.

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate.

Blood 2015; Kim et al. Blood 2017; Li et al. Circulation 2019). The postdoctoral research associate will study the mechanisms mediating intravascular cell-cell interactions and vascular occlusion in thromboinflammation using the state-of-the-art techniques including, but not limited to, real-time fluorescence intravital microscopy, gene knockdown/editing systems, confocal/FRET microscopy, in situ and in vivo proximity ligation assays, and animal disease models.

The PI will help the postdoctoral research associate develop their career by providing a highly interactive and exciting research environment and by encouraging the preparation of research papers, application of fellowships, and participation at national meetings.
