We are searching for highly motivated individuals to join the Schumacher-Bass lab within Molecular Cardiology. The lab has numerous ongoing projects regarding the molecular regulation of the transition from healthy adaptation to disease progression in the heart with a goal to find new targets for human therapy. These projects will utilize discovery-based approaches to identify novel protein interactions and signaling pathways in the development and progression of heart failure in response to different disease etiologies (https://www.lerner.ccf.org/moleccard/bass/). The lab utilizes numerous techniques from cloning and in vitro cell work, to the generation of novel murine models and use of surgical models of heart disease.
The postdoctoral fellow duties will include, but are not limited to: organizing and implementing complex research plans, the development of new methods, testing and data collection, analysis and interpretation of data, writing detailed scientific reports, and mentoring graduate and undergraduate students. The candidate will be expected to possess superior communication and organizational skills and present their research findings on a regular basis to both peers within the institute and at national and international meetings. No teaching will be required of this position.
Competitive salary and benefits such as health insurance and paid vacation are provided.
The qualified candidate must possess a Ph.D. and/or M.D. with relevant research experience in biological sciences or biotechnology. Prior experience in one or more of the following areas is preferred: cardiovascular biology, receptor pharmacology, protein biochemistry, protein-protein interaction, mouse models of disease, metabolic signaling, cardiac and vascular physiology. Applicants are expected to have excellent oral and written communication skills in English, and must be a self-motivated, team-oriented individual.
