The Srinivasan Lab is seeking motivated applicants to conduct NIH/NHLBI funded research that will identify the molecular mechanisms of lymphatic vascular development. The lab uses mouse genetics, biochemical, cellular and molecular biology tools to dissect the roles of transcription factors and signaling molecules in vivo. Our long-term goal is to understand how defects in developmental pathways could lead to diseases such as lymphedema and valvular dysfunction.
We are also interested in understanding the comorbidities of lymphedema such as fibrosis.

Postdoctoral position - Towards deciphering mechanisms of transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene regulation in eukaryotic cells
Department of Biochemistry, University of Oxford
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist with an interest in gene regulation. The proposed projects will utilize state-of-the-art biochemistry and structural approaches combined with the functional genome-wide analysis to understand how transcription factors and chromatin modifiers regulate transcription of protein-coding and non-coding genes in yeast and mammalian cells. The structural study will be done as a part of existing productive collaboration with Jonathan Grimes laboratory at STRUBi (Oxford) (Wittmann et al., 2017 Nature Communication, in press). Candidates trained in protein purification, RNA analysis, and mammalian cell culture are encouraged to apply. Basic knowledge of bioinformatics is beneficial. Applicants should have or will shortly obtain a PhD and are expected to be highly motivated, have at least one first authorship publication, show excellent critical thinking and good communication skills and have the ability to work as part of a team.
Interested applicant should contact Dr Lidia Vasiljeva directly:
