Job Summary

The research in our laboratory is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular diseases and developing novel therapies.  Two postdoctoral researcher positions are now open, funded by R01 grants. Research will be performed utilizing a variety of in vitro and in vivo approaches including stem cell differentiation, hIPSC-derived bioengineered blood vessels and animal model studies.  A cover letter and your CV are required as the first step for consideration for this position. The cover letter should address your specific interest in the position and outline skills and experience that directly relate to this position.

Requirements

A doctoral degree in molecular and cell biology or bioengineering is required for this position. The candidate is expected to be familiar with basic molecular and cell biology techniques, and animal model studies.  Additional expertise in stem cell biology, vascular biology and functional genomics is a plus, but not required.

Responsibilities
