Systems Biology Laboratory

Positions Open

MS and PhD projects are available in the areas of computational modeling and bioinformatics data mining of angiogenesis, nitric oxide and oxygen transport, blood flow in the microcirculation, and cell mechanics. Theoretical and computational studies could be combined with experimental research in our laboratory and the laboratories of our collaborators.

Postdoctoral fellowship to conduct research on computational modeling, bioinformatics and systems biology of angiogenesis (neovascularization). Current focus is on the effects of growth factors (VEGF) on VEGF receptors and signal transduction in endothelial cells. Work closely with experimental collaborators. Also, collaborations within the laboratory on multi-scale modeling of angiogenesis are encouraged; other members of the lab develop models of pro- and anti-angiogenic pharmaceutical agents, VEGF-receptor interactions, hypoxia-inducible factor HIF1alpha (a transcription factor), matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), nitric oxide, mechanical factors, and integrative models.

Requirements: Ph.D. in bioengineering, biophysics, molecular/cell biology, physiology, engineering, or equivalent. Strong background and experience in biology and computational/systems biology. Experience in modeling signal transduction is useful.
