Postdoc and research associate positions in cardiovascular development

Posted by , on 15 October 2014

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

The Wythe Lab at Baylor College of Medicine favors a cross disciplinary approach to solving key problems in cardiovascular development. Rather than wed ourselves to a singular model system or technique, we attack biological questions from multiple fronts, using gold standard genetic models-such as the mouse, cutting edge imaging techniques, genome-wide analyses, and classical biochemistry.

We have funding and are actively recruiting for people to pursue projects in multiple areas (again, from multiple angles), but are currently seeking expertise in developmental biology (zebrafish or mouse), molecular profiling methods (particularly genomics and proteomics), bioinformatics, and imaging. Our efforts center around the goal of elucidating the key transcriptional and molecular nodes that establish and maintain a functional cardiovascular system.

Baylor College of Medicine (an equal opportunity employer) is located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas. The TMC is a world-class research environment, consisting of more than 40 non-profit institutions, with one of the highest densities of clinical, translational, and basic science research facilities in the world.

Position 1: post-doctoral fellow.

If you are passionate about biology, motivated to kick butt in the lab, and interested in joining our group, please send a CV, a cover letter explaining your interest in the work of the lab and how you would fit into the group, as well as a list of three to five references and their contact information all as a single, combined PDF if possible) to

Position 2: Research Associate
We have an opening in our group for a meticulously organized and conscientious person well-versed in molecular biology (cloning, PCR, etc) and mouse husbandry (>1 year, minimum). A working knowledge of relational database organization (Filemaker Pro, preferably) and other standard computer software is required. A master’s degree (or equivalent experience) is preferred, and effective communication skills and a team-first attitude are essential. If this sounds like you, we’d love to have you join our team! If you are interested, please send a cover letter detailing your work experience and interest in the position, a CV, and the contact information of two (or more) references (all as a single, combined PDF if possible) to
