Job Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow, Zinkel Lab, Department of Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN

Posted by on Monday, July 6, 2020 in Job Opportunities .

The Zinkel Lab in the Department of Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine is seeking highly motivated candidates for a funded postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory. Our lab studies how inflammatory cell death (necroptosis) in the bone marrow microenvironment impacts blood diseases such as clonal hematopoiesis, bone marrow failure (myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and leukemia and how inhibiting necroptosis impacts clonal progression and leukemogenesis.

We use single cell analysis of mouse models and human samples as well as studies in BioVU (in collaboration with Eric Gamazon) to determine gene pathways that predispose to progression to disease.

Interested? Please send a curriculum vita, the names of three references, and a letter describing your research accomplishments and career goals to: Dr. Sandra Zinkel (
