POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW

DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY, DIVISION OF CARDIAC SURGERY

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

A full-time Post-Doctoral Fellow position is available in laboratory if Dr. Sunjay Kaushal and Dr. Deqiang Li in the Center for Vascular and Inflammatory Diseases at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

One of the research focuses in the lab is to understand the mechanisms of hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), a congenital heart defect with very poor prognosis even after surgical correction. We also endeavor to treat this disease using stem cell approach. Induced pluripotent stem cells (IPSCs) derived from HLHS patients will be a major platform for exploring these research interests.

Many state-of-the-art techniques are utilized, such as RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq, CRISP-Cas9, real time imaging and advanced microscopy, multi-color flow and sorting, etc.  The University of Maryland School of Medicine has a group of outstanding scientists in cardiovascular research, especially in cardiovascular cell signaling, diabetes, endothelial biology, and pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to work with them and get help in developing an independent career in this research field.

Applicants must have a PhD, MD/PhD or equivalent degree. We are seeking talented and self-motivated postdoctoral candidates with a good work ethic and a strong interest in cardiovascular research.  Candidates with background and experience in iPSCs, CRISPR-Cas9 and sequencing are preferred.  Good writing and oral communication skills in English are required, as well as the ability to work both independently and collaboratively.

Interested candidates should send a CV, a one-page statement of research interests and future career goals, and contact information for three references.  Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.  Please send your application as a single PDF file to:
