Department Name/Job Location This position is in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Hematology. This position is for the Medical School Campus. Essential Functions There is an opening for a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate in the laboratory of Dr. Jaehyung (Gus) Cho. Our lab has identified novel regulatory mechanisms of heterotypic platelet-neutrophil interactions and vascular occlusion under thromboinflammatory conditions, including atherothrombosis, vasculitis, ischemic stroke, and sickle cell disease (Li et al. JCI 2014; Barazia et al. Blood 2015; Kim et al. Blood 2017; Li et al. Circulation 2019). The postdoctoral associate will study the mechanisms mediating intravascular cell-cell interactions in thromboinflammation and cancer using state-of-the-art techniques including, but not limited to, real-time confocal intravital microscopy, gene knockdown/editing systems, animal disease models, CyTOF, and RNA-seq. The PI will help the postdoctoral associate develop their career by providing a highly interactive and exciting research environment and by encouraging the preparation of research papers, application of postdoctoral fellowships, and participation at national meetings. Required Qualifications * Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree. * Previous experience in flow cytometry, CyTOF, RNA-seq, and/or mouse disease models (preference: models of thrombosis, inflammation (e.g., sepsis or stroke), or cancer (e.g., xenograft)). * Excellent written and verbal communication skills. * First author papers in premier journals.
