Postdoctoral Positions in hypertension/platelet signaling

The research lab of Dr. Michael Holinstat in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, is in search of two postdoctoral Research Fellows. The first selected candidate will investigate the ability of novel therapeutic approaches to prevent or treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). The second candidate will investigate platelet biochemical and physiological steps in the regulation of blood coagulation in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo in human and animal models of blood clotting.  Both will be afforded the ability to work in an open-lab environment with access to all of its state-of-the-art equipment in order to gain a greater understanding of hemostasis and thrombosis in the in vivo, in vitro, and ex vivo setting in both human and small animal models.

The lab maintains state-of-the-art hemostasis and thrombosis facilities including full protein chemistry capabilities, lumi-aggregometers, flow cytometer, hemavet, a microscopy facility containing 2 zeiss microscopes with the capacity for in vivo intravital confocal microscopy and single-cell high resolution microscopy, PCR machines, 2 multi-mode plate readers, thromboelestography, and a phlebotomy suite with full-time phlebotomist. The lab is situated in the heart of Michigan Medicine within steps of a multitude of research resources and easy access to collaborators, the clinics, and animal facilities.
