A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Won Hee Lee in the Department of Basic Medical Sciences at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix. We are a newly established lab with many exciting opportunities. We are currently looking for a highly motivated and independent postdoctoral fellow to use a combination of patient-specific human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), primary human cells/tissues, along with animal models to a) develop a platform for the evaluation of radiation risk and cardiovascular toxicity associated with environmental exposure, and b) conduct mechanistic and cell biology studies of cell-cell interaction under diseased condition.

This position requires PhD level training. Experience working in cardiovascular research, stem cell biology, and animal models of cardiac disease or radiation biology is desirable.

Minimum qualifications: All candidates must have extensive experience in stem cell biology, animal models of cardiac disease as well as expertise in the use of confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, and general molecular biology techniques. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in novel cutting-edge technologies such as genome editing, deep sequencing etc. A strong record of peer-reviewed research papers with at least one first-author publications in reputable journals (IF>5) is required. Excellent verbal and written skills in English are required.
