Post-doctoral Fellow - Cardiovascular development and disease

Overview
The Srinivasan Lab at Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) studies cardiovascular disease. Specifically, the lab is interested in identifying the signaling pathways that regulate lymphatic vascular disorders, heart valve disease, inflammation and metabolic dysfunction. We are recruiting highly motivated researchers with experience in Cell biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or Immunology for postdoctoral fellowship that is funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH). Several trainees from the Srinivasan lab have successfully transitioned to academic and biotech careers.

OMRF is an independent, not-for-profit biomedical research institute adjacent to the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) campus in Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City offers a dynamic and flourishing downtown area, with low cost of living, short commute times and a diversified economy.

OMRF's excellence can only be fully realized by individuals who share our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Successful candidates will demonstrate commitment to these values. OMRF is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, color, national origin, age, religion, disability, veteran status or any other legally protected characteristic.

Benefits

We offer competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits including, medical, dental, and vision insurance, minimum 8% company retirement contribution, vacation and sick leave, paid holidays, onsite cafe, free onsite fitness center with access to personal trainer, free parking and much more! Relocation assistance available for those located 50 miles outside of Oklahoma City metro and out of state. Learn more about our benefits here.


Responsibilities
The Postdoctoral Fellows responsibility will be to elucidate the mechanisms by which signaling molecules regulate cardiovascular development and disease. Towards this end the fellow will use mouse models to investigate pathological changes in tissues such as the gut, heart, lungs and brain; use cellular and biochemical approaches to characterize the signaling pathways; and use omics approaches such as RNA-seq and ATAC-seq to elucidate the molecular mechanisms. The fellow must be willing to learn the techniques that are available in the Srinivasan lab and OMRF and establish new protocols as they become necessary.
