Postdoctoral positions are available in July 2022 in the Cardiovascular Research Laboratory at Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI), Pasadena, CA to investigate a novel Ser/Thr phosphatase in the heart and brain with age and following injury.  In addition, the project will define the epigenetic mechanisms required for phosphatase mediated regulation of transcriptional changes that is important for cardiac homeostasis in young and aging mice. Using both in vitro and in vivo model systems we will determine novel targets that regulate protein expression and metabolic signaling with aging. Candidates with a background in cell and myocardial biology will be preferred. Experience in molecular and cell biology techniques, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and cardiac mouse models are all considered strengths for this position.

Candidates, with a recent PhD degree, and a good track record of publications, will be given priority. The initial appointment will be for two years with the possibility of extension. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications, laboratory experience, and institutional guidelines. 

TO APPLY: Please send application materials (CV, a brief summary of career goals and objectives) and a list of three professional references to No phone calls, please. Private letters of recommendation can be submitted using this form:
