Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Vascular Biology and Cellular Immunology An NIH-funded Post-Doctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Li Zhang at the Center for Vascular and Inflammatory Diseases, University of Maryland, School of Medicine. The successful candidate will investigate the role of specific subsets of macrophages and microglia in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, and Alzheimer's disease. The major goal of these studies is to molecularly define how the CD18 integrin receptors, whose single nucleotide polymorphisms are linked to increased risks of human diseases, regulate discrete signaling pathways that confer macrophages/microglia with disease-modifying functions and wound healing capabilities. The post-doc fellow will perform experiments involving vascular biology, immune regulation, and murine models of human diseases. Prior experience in animal models, cell migration and trafficking, live cell imaging and advanced microscopy, multicolor flow cytometry, molecular techniques for proteins and nucleic acids, or transcriptomics/bioinformatics is preferred. If interested, please email your CV and list of three references to Dr. Li Zhang ([email protected]), Interim Director of the Center for Vascular and Inflammatory Diseases and Professor of PhysiologyThe University of Maryland, Baltimore is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
Minorities, women, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Welcome to the Baltimore campus of the University of Maryland, founded in 1807 along a ridge in what was then called Baltimore Town. Today, this 61-acre research and technology complex encompasses 65 buildings in West Baltimore near the Inner Harbor.
The University is Maryland's only public academic health, human services, and law center. Seven professional and graduate schools train the majority of the state's physicians, nurses, dentists, lawyers, social workers, and pharmacists.
Under the leadership of President Jay A. Perman, MD, the University is a leading partner in the redevelopment of the west side of Baltimore. The University of Maryland BioPark, which opened in October 2005, promotes collaborative research opportunities and bioscience innovation.
Sponsored research totaled $567.1 million in Fiscal Year 2010. With 6,349 students and 6,717 faculty members and staff, the University is an economic engine that returns more than $15 in economic activity for every $1 of state general funds appropriation. The University community gives more than 2 million hours a year in service to the public.
The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is the State¹s public health, law and human services university devoted to excellence in professional and graduate education, research, patient care, and public service. As a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff and students, and using state-of-the-art technological support, we educate leaders in health care delivery, biomedical science, global health, social work and the law. We emphasize interdisciplinary education and research in an atmosphere that explicitly values civility, diversity, collaboration, teamwork and accountability. By conducting internationally recognized research to cure disease and to improve the health, social functioning and just treatment of the people we serve, we foster economic development in the City, State, and nation.
