Postdoc Position in Vascular Biology/Glaucoma
The Quaggin lab, based at the Feinberg Cardiovascular & Renal Research Institute in Chicago at Northwestern University, has one postdoctoral position open now. We study fundamental mechanisms of vascular signaling pathways and their role in development and diseases of specialized microvascular beds and lymphatics. An opening to participate in impactful research related to uncovering mechanisms and developing therapies for glaucoma is available.
Postdoctoral scientists in the lab will conduct cutting-edge research in a protected, interactive, highly collaborative, and well-funded environment, with access to shared facilities including sequencing, bioinformatics, imaging, metabolomics, nanotechnology, and genome editing.
