We are seeking a PhD post-doctoral fellow for appointment in our NIH/NHLBI T32 training grant, entitled “Collaborative Research Training in Thrombosis and Inflammation.”  This program aims to train postdoctoral scientists for collaborative research careers in two inter-related topics: thrombosis and inflammation.
