Postdoc Position in Cardiovascular Research
Two postdoctoral positions in the area of cardiovascular biology and cardiomyopathy is available in the lab of professor Ching-Pin Chang at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. The primary research focus of the lab is to understand the molecular and genetic mechanisms of heart development and disease, with special emphasis on cardiomyopathy. Specific areas of interest include the genetic/epigenetic and noncoding RNA mechanism of cardiomyopathy (myocytes, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts). Chang lab's publications include Nature (PMID: 25119045; 20596014; 25119037; 20130577), Cell (PMID: 15339668); Circulation Research (PMID: 18723445, 21293009), PNAS (PMID: 23319608; 27601681), Nature Communications, PMID: 28924218; 29215012), Developmental Cell (PMID: 23602386, 20816797), Annual Review Physiology (PMID: 22035349), Nature Review Cardiology (PMID: 25855606).
Recent PhD graduates (or equivalents) with trainings in any field of biology are welcome to apply. Candidates with experience in cardiovascular research using mouse models and strong background in molecular biology will be given preference. Applicants with additional qualifications in animal heart surgeries are encouraged apply. The qualified candidates are expected to be self-motivated and team-oriented. Albert Einstein College of Medicine provides postdoctoral trainees with excellent work environment and affordable housing for individuals and families. The positions are available up to four years and supported by the NIH funding, with salaries/benefits according to the NIH and institutional guidelines.
Interested candidates are invited to submit a cover letter describing previous research experience and career goals, curriculum vitae, along with names of three references to:
