Postdoctoral Fellow- Cardiovascular Diseases

Lab/department/ Institute: A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Dr. Annie Beuve in the Department of Pharmacology, Physiology and Neuroscience at New Jersey Medical School- Rutgers. We are a multidisciplinary lab that studies nitric oxide (NO) signaling and modulation of the NO-sensor, the soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC), using cell and molecular biology, biochemistry and physiological approaches. The scientific environment of Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School is excellent with access to multiple core facilities (imaging 2 photons and confocal microscopes, nucleic acid core, flow cytometry etc.), in addition to mouse echocardiography equipment and state-of-the-art genome-editing transgenic facility. We have long-standing collaborations with the Center of Advanced Proteomics and the Office of Advanced Research Computing of Rutgers. The department is collegial and highly interactive with a strong interest in nitric oxide and calcium signaling, and the cardiovascular system. (http://njms.rutgers.edu/departments/pharmacology/)

Rutgers, the State University of NJ is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. New Jersey Medical School is on the Newark campus, 30 min from Manhattan.

Position: We are hiring as soon as possible a postdoc with a recent PhD to study vascular diseases in mouse models of NO-cGMP pathway disruption. The successful candidate will lead a project to integrate the molecular mechanisms of NO and cGMP signaling in vivo in the cardiovascular system of mouse models subjected to oxidative stress. The candidate must have prior experience in handling and performing mouse surgeries (preferably cardiovascular surgery), and colonies maintenance. Skills in cell culture and fluorescent microscopy are a plus. Our lab is supported by NIH and AHA.

Minimum qualifications: candidate should have a recent PhD or MD/PhD degree (within 3 years of receiving the degree) in physiology or related biomedical disciplines. First-authored publication(s) in peer-reviewed English-language journals in their graduate work is required.

Application: Please email a letter of interest, CV and the names and contacts of three references to Dr. Annie Beuve, Professor at beuveav@njms.rutgers.edu.
