The Bergmeier lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is currently seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to conduct in vivo and in vitro studies aimed at a better understanding of how the function of megakaryocytes and platelets is controlled by small GTPases. Our experimental approach combines biophysical/-chemical and cell biological work with state-of-the-art imaging techniques such as lattice light sheet, 2-photon and spinning disk confocal microscopy. The Bergmeier lab is embedded in a vibrant scientific community at UNC Chapel Hill as well as a network of (inter)national collaborators.
