Cardiac Physiologist and Surgeon
There is an open position at Stanford University for a cardiovascular physiologist and small animal surgeon in the lab of Michael S. Kapiloff, MD, PhD, FAHA, FAPS (https://profiles.stanford.edu/michael-kapiloff). The Kapiloff laboratory is heavily invested in small rodent, in vivo cardiac physiology research, both with regards to the study of basic cardiac signal transduction mechanisms and the development of novel heart failure therapeutics. We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated cardiac physiologist who will perform transverse aortic constriction and coronary artery ligation survival surgeries, echocardiography, and left ventricular catheterization in mice and rats. Some of these skills may be acquired through on the job training, but there must be prior experience in in vivo cardiac physiology and surgery that can be demonstrated via references and/or publications. Both prospective career staff scientists and postdoctoral fellows interested in advanced training in physiology are welcome to apply.
