The Anand lab is broadly interested in identifying and characterizing non-coding RNAs, especially microRNAs, in the regulation of developmental and pathological angiogenesis. Our work involves molecular biology techniques (Expression profiling, functional genomics, qPCR, cloning), cell biology (Confocal imaging, 3D cell culture, flow cytometry, bioluminescence assays) and uses in vitro, in vivo model systems. Our goal is to both understand the functional role of non-coding RNAs in the vasculature and seek ways to exploit these molecules for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes.
- PhD, MD or MD/PhD in Molecular Biology/Cell Biology/Immunology or relevant areas.
- At least one first author paper in a good journal and not more than 2 years post PhD experience.
- Passion and high degree of enthusiasm for science.
- Good analytical skills.
- Ability to prioritize multiple tasks at one time.
- Must have excellent communication skills: both written and verbal.
- Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
Molecular biology techniques required: PCR, Real-time qPCR, cell culture, transfections, transductions, Western blots, cloning, confocal imaging.
Experience with murine models of angiogenesis.
Experience with gene expression screens/functional genomics.
Experience with synthetic biology tools is desirable.
