Our group is interested in the interaction between platelets and endothelial cells. We aim to study the role of endothelial cells in the bleeding and thrombotic complications associated with platelet disorders and focus on the angiogenic properties of platelets in platelet disorders. We use genetically engineered mice and patients samples to investigate these issues.
The applicant should hold a PhD and be able to pursue independent research. The successful candidate will have hands-on experience in cell and molecular biology and cellular imaging. Conceptual training in platelet function, vascular biology or angiogenesis is desirable. Any experience in platelets studies, endothelial cell cultures, in vivo studies of thrombosis, or platelets adhesion studies under flow conditions will be highly appreciated. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are expected.
Our group is located close to Bordeaux, in Pessac, France, in the INSERM U1034. Our group is starting to work on the platelet/endothelial cell project (ATIP-AVENIR funding), but the lab is well known in the field of angiogenesis.
The successful candidate will be given solid technical support and he/she may be involved in the training of graduate students (if desired).
We invite applications from highly motivated post doctoral researchers, starting in January 2012.
Competitive salary is available for 2 years position, with possibility of extension to a third year. We have already obtained a funding for this position.
Please send full CV including research interests and 2-3 references with contact information to: Dr Chloé James, firstname.lastname@example.org
