Postdoctoral Research Fellow In Cardiovascular Pathobiology

Posted Date:

Position Description

Heart attacks and stroke are the most common causes of death and disability in the United States and are most often the result of occlusion (blockage) of blood flow to the heart or brain. Well-trained scientists are needed to investigate the causes and complications of these occlusive events. This research training program is designed to prepare early career scientists to become independent investigators who can work in teams to discover answers that will lead to the prevention and treatment of occlusive vascular disease. This NIH-sponsored NRSA postdoctoral research training program in cardiovascular pathobiology (HL07446) offers concentrated interdisciplinary research training across diverse laboratories with wide-ranging areas of expertise. This training program provides up to three years of support for highly motivated postdoctoral trainees. The expertise of participating mentors includes:

  • Biochemistry
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Cell & Molecular Biology
  • Diabetes
  • Electrophysiology
  • Hypertension
  • Imaging
  • Inflammation
  • Pharmacology
  • Stroke
  • Vascular Biology

Position Requirements

Applicants must have recently completed all requirements for a professional doctoral degree (PhD, MD, DO, DVM, PharmD, MBBS) and have substantial research expertise with at least one first author publication.
