Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cardiovascular Research

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Cardiovascular Research Training Program (CRTP) at the University of New Mexico (UNM) Health Sciences Center (HSC;, funded by a T32 grant from NIH/NHLBI. The goal of the CRTP is to provide exceptional pre- and post-doctoral trainees a broad, multidisciplinary background in cardiovascular and pulmonary research with integration between basic and clinical sciences. This research program provides a rich academic training environment, including the resources, technical approaches, communication skills, and professional interactions that will aid the trainee becoming an independent investigator in cardiovascular research.

The program currently includes 22 faculty mentors at the School of Medicine and College of Pharmacy with research programs in vascular biology, cardiovascular toxicology and development, cell signaling, and clinical and translational research. Specific research interests include systemic and pulmonary hypertension, atherosclerosis, angiogenesis, oxidant signaling, metabolic and mitochondrial dysfunction, ion channels and intracellular calcium dynamics, endothelial biology, air pollutants and vascular injury, ischemic brain injury, adaptive immunity, estrogen receptor signaling, stem cell biology, drug discovery, and sleep apnea.

The University of New Mexico, founded in 1889, is located in the heart of Albuquerque, a metropolitan area of more than 500,000 people situated in the historic Rio Grande River Valley at the base of the majestic Sandia Mountains. Albuquerque is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the country, reflected in its unique architecture, art, and cuisine ( The city’s high altitude climate, abundant sunshine, and surrounding mountainous terrain provide many opportunities for outdoor activities, including skiing, golfing, hiking, fishing, and mountain biking.

Minimum requirements: PhD, MD, or equivalent. Applications are restricted to U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

Preferred qualifications: Research experience in cardiovascular physiology, pharmacology or toxicology; strong publication record; excellent communication and laboratory skills. 

The CRTP T32 provides an NIH level stipend, and allowances for tuition and fees, health insurance, training-related expenses, and travel to scientific meetings.  Individuals from under-represented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications must include a letter of interest, CV, and names and email addresses of three references. Direct correspondence to Dr. Thomas C. Resta,
