POSTDOCTORAL POSITION –

Molecular Signaling

One NIH funded Post-doctoral position available immediately to study the regulation of novel signaling mechanisms that provide protection in the setting of heart failure. We are seeking ambitious researchers to investigate molecular mechanisms involved in the regulation of novel G-proteins, their contribution to calcium handling, and their therapeutic potential as a future heart failure treatment. Our research team uses an integrative approach that involves cell and molecular biology, electrophysiological, and novel genetically engineered mouse models. 

Self-motivated individuals with a Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree are encouraged to apply. Trainees benefit from labs working synergistically on the common goal of understanding heart function with extensive backgrounds in electrophysiology/heart physiology (Satin lab) and cellular signaling (Andres lab). Candidates in any one of these areas will have the opportunity to expand their scope of expertise by virtue of the integration of research across the Andres & Satin labs on RGK proteins. The University of Kentucky located in Lexington provides an outstanding professional environment and low-cost of living. The ideal candidate will have evidence of skills in molecular and/or cellular physiology. Salary is competitive and includes benefits. Applicants should submit a resume and contact information for three references.
