A postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in the Department of Physiology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA on a collaborative NIH R01 project. This position is available to investigate the effects of chronic vape inhalation on the homeostasis of the renin-angiotensin system and the development of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. A multidisciplinary approach will be employed combining the state-of-the-art vaping system for mice, cardiac function tests (echocardiogram, pressure-volume recording), and blood pressure monitoring (telemetry). In addition, transgenic and knockout mouse models will be employed to dissect the molecular mechanisms of how chronic vape inhalation alters components of the renin-angiotensin system and predisposes users to cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. Ideal candidates with a recent PhD in Physiology or a related discipline are encouraged to apply.

For additional information contact Dr. Jason Gardner (jgardn@lsuhsc.edu), Dr. Xinping Yue (xyue@lsuhsc.edu), or Dr. Eric Lazartigues (elazar@lsuhsc.edu).

The LSUHSC School of Medicine in New Orleans encourages women and minority candidates to submit applications for this position.  LSUHSC is an Equal Opportunity Employer for females, minorities, individuals with disabilities and protected veterans.

 Interested applicants should send their resume and the names of 3 references.
