Postdoctoral position

A postdoctoral position is available in the Lawson laboratory at the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School.  Our work focuses on the 
signals that govern blood vessel formation during embryonic 
development in the zebrafish.  We are especially interested in the 
pathways that drive artery and vein differentiation (see Lawson and 
Weinstein, Nat Rev Genet 3:674; Lawson et al., Development, 
128:3675; and Lawson et al., Dev Cell 3:127). Current projects in the 
lab include performing genetic screens using blood vessel specific 
transgenic zebrafish lines to identify regulators of artery development 
(see Lawson et al. Dev Biol 248:307 and Lawson et al. Genes Dev 
17:1346).  Previous experience with zebrafish would be ideal, but is not 
required. Extensive molecular biology experience is absolutely 
essential. If you are interested, please send or email your CV and 
names of 3 references to the address below.
