The Junge lab in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Neurosciences seeks to appoint two full-time Post-Doctoral Fellows beginning Fall 2019.
The Junge lab integrates mouse genetics, molecular and protein-biochemical methods, cell biology, and various -omics, to understand the signaling pathways that mediate neurovascular interactions. These efforts help us to understand how normal biology is altered in disease, in particular retinal vascular diseases. The Junge lab is NIH-funded for the next 5 years.
Current projects focus on blood-retina barrier function, norrin and wnt signaling, the classical complement system, and vascular functions of p53.
Design, conduct, and analyze laboratory experiments.
Stay current with the literature in the field.
Discuss and collaborate with team members.
Participate in interpreting data and preparing manuscripts for publications.
Participate in preparing grant applications.
