Postdoctoral positions in the Vascular Biology Section of the Mouse Cancer Genetics Program are available to study vascular biology in cancer. Vascular biology plays a vital role in the progression of many debilitating diseases, including cancer growth and metastasis. Vascular disease is the most common cause of death and disability in Western societies. Research in the laboratory centers on the mechanisms that govern blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) and vascular homeostasis (Cancer Cell 6:409; 13:23; Blood 108:1260; J. Exp. Med. 207:77).
The laboratory is located on the Frederick campus of NCI with many state-of-the-art facilities for genomic analysis, pathology, and small animal imaging, among others (http://web.ncifcrf.gov/default.asp).
Applicants must possess a Ph.D. or equivalent, have no more than five years of post-doctoral experience. In addition, qualified candidates should have strong verbal and written communication skills and a demonstrated record of scientific achievement through peer-reviewed publications.
Highly motivated individuals with strong background in molecular biology and cell biology, development biology and mouse genetics are encouraged to apply.
