Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Vascular Biology

 

The Jaffe Lab invites post-doctoral applications for a position to study hormonal regulation of vascular function and disease. Clinical studies support that an excess of the hormone aldosterone promotes vascular remodeling and atherosclerosis and that inhibition of aldosterone interaction with the Mineralocorticoid Receptor decreases mortality, heart attacks, and strokes.  The lab is investigating the molecular mechanisms by which MR-activation regulates vascular function in order to identify new therapeutic targets to prevent or treat cardiovascular diseases in humans. 

 

A highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow is sought with prior experience in cell and molecular biology and mouse models. The successful applicant will work closely with the Principal Investigator on research projects studying the transcriptional regulatory mechanisms controlled by vascular Mineralocorticoid Receptors and their role in vascular function and disease. The laboratory uses state of the art biochemical, molecular, and cell-biologic assays and mouse models of vascular injury and atherosclerosis to address clinically relevant questions in vascular biology.  As needed, the individual will be required to independently develop protocols and establish new methodologies in the laboratory.  MD, PhD or both required


Qualified candidates must be a US citizen or permanent resident as this position is funded by an NIH training grant.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Cardiac Electrophysiology

 

The Noujaim Lab is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in cardiac electrophysiology to investigate the role of potassium inward rectifiers in atrial fibrillation. Proficiency in general molecular techniques including cell culture, Western Blot, PCR, and confocal microscopy as well as experience in patch clamp highly desirable. Ability to develop new techniques, analyze data and assist in the preparation of manuscripts for publication required.  Ideal candidate will have a Ph.D in physiology, pharmacology, biophysics, or related field.  2+ years postdoctoral experience preferred but not necessary.

Qualified candidates must be a US citizen or permanent resident as this position is funded by an NIH training grant.
