   A postdoctoral position is open in a lab at the UVA cardiovascular research center
    Cell plasticity can be physiologic or pathological. Epigenetic effectors transmit environmental cues into chromatin remodeling and cell state transitions. We aspire to understand how their interplay shapes specific cell states. We also do translation research by targeting pathological cell plasticity to treat vascular disease or retinal degeneration. Candidates are expected to have mastered molecular/cell biology and biochemical approaches. Experience in animal work or bioinformatics is preferred but not required. The incumbent can choose between vascular and retinal projects. If interested, please send a CV and names of 3 references to lg8zr@virginia.edu.
