Two Postdoc Positions- University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, USA (Pittsburgh)
Location: Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Two postdoctoral positions are available in the Pittsburgh Heart, Lung and Blood Vascular Medicine Institute (VMI) at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine. This premiere research institute houses laboratories performing rigorous, cutting edge basic and translational research in vascular biology and metabolism, and has ample access to exceptional core facilities (e.g. NextGen Sequencing, Biological Imaging, Metabolomics, Flow Cytometry). Candidates will also have the opportunity to benefit from the unique career and mentoring opportunities available in the University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine. The University of Pittsburgh is an Equal Opportunity Employer for Minorities/Women/Vets/Disabled.
A PhD, MD, or MD/PhD required. The successful candidate(s) will have excellent written and verbal English communication skills, along with experience in cell culture, molecular and biochemical assays, and studies involving small animals. Particular consideration will be given to candidates with demonstrated experience in vascular biology or mouse models of metabolic diseases. Eligibility to apply for NIH Training Grants would also be a distinct advantage.
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Iain Scott, studying mitochondrial function, lysine acetylation and cellular metabolism. The candidate will initiate metabolic and biochemical studies of mitochondrial function and cellular physiology. In particular, this highly-motivated individual will use newly-generated animal models to investigate the role of mitochondrial metabolism in the pathophysiology of obesity and type 2 diabetes. To apply to this position please submit your CV, a cover letter detailing your research experience, and contact details of three references to email@example.com
St. Hilaire Lab
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Cynthia St. Hilaire, characterizing novel mechanisms regulating vascular calcification and vessel remodeling, incorporating cell biology, extracellular matrix remodeling, signaling transduction, and in vivo models. Particular research angles include the role of mechanical stress, extracellular matrix remodeling, and autophagy in a variety of vascular disease contexts. Ongoing collaborations with clinicians at the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute provide a unique opportunity for direct translational research. To apply to this position please submit your CV, a cover letter detailing your research experience, and contact details of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
