The Division of Cardiology at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and the Department of Pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh, in conjunction with the Pediatric Institute for Heart Regeneration and Therapeutics (I-HRT), is recruiting innovative and creative physicians and scientists at any faculty rank in the tenure track. We invite applications from exceptional candidates with significant achievements in cardiovascular research, cell and molecular biology, or mechanisms of heart regeneration. Applicants must have performed sufficient postdoctoral research and have demonstrated outstanding promise to build an independent research program and secure external funding. Clinical scientists are encouraged to apply. Candidates must have a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree.
I-HRT is a newly-established research institute within the Department of Pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. This institute seeks to improve health by repairing hearts through guided regeneration. The institute strives to develop the scientific basis for heart regeneration through world-class research and training. The institute will incorporate basic, translational, and clinical research components. I-HRT is located within the Rangos Research Center on the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Campus. I-HRT’s goal for the next five years is to translate the strategy of stimulating heart muscle cell regeneration into a therapy.
