Position Description:

A Postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Laboratory of Cardiovascular Physiology and Tissue Injury (LCPTI), National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). The LCPTI focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the development of cardiac, renal, and hepatic dysfunction in various pathologies using therapeutically relevant animal disease models, and on identification of novel therapeutic targets to counteract these pathologies (Nat Rev Cardiol. 2021 Feb;18(2):117-135; Hepatology. 2018 Oct;68(4):1519-1533; Free Radic Biol Med. 2020 May 20;152:540-550; J Hepatol. 2017 Mar;66(3):589-600; Gastroenterology. 2013 Apr;144(4):808-817)

The candidate will work on scientific projects exploring the molecular mechanisms involved in the development of renal dysfunction of various etiology (e.g induced by chronic liver disease, ureter ligation, I/R-induced injury), also using a new animal models of hepatorenal syndrome, and in testing novel therapeutic agents in these pathologies developed in collaboration with the industry.

NIH has excellent training opportunities in a highly supportive and collaborative environment.
