Position Summary

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, 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 mechanisms regulating neutrophil and platelet activation in vascular and metabolic disease, using state-of-the-art techniques, including, but not limited to, confocal intravital microscopy, gene knockdown/editing systems, animal disease models, multiplex assays, and single-cell RNA-seq.
