Two postdoctoral positions are available in the Yang Lab in the Cardiovascular Center of Excellence of LSUHSC-New Orleans to study the role of mitochondrial regulations in the heart and other related tissues under healthy and diseased conditions. The lab seeks to determine how altered metabolic programming is involved in the pathological development of the heart by dissecting potential pathways in cultured cells and genetically engineering mice subjected to various disease conditions. The lab employs techniques in physiology, histology, cell biology and biochemistry integrated with various omics analyses to gain mechanistic insights at the cell, organelle, organ, and whole animal level. The lab also extends findings from the heart to other tissues and look further into the systemic and inter-tissue cross-talks at other disease states.

The ideal candidates for both positions should have a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees with proven productivity and well-versed skills in cardiovascular research and mitochondrial biology.

Salary and benefits commensurate with experience and NIH guidelines.
