Location: Salt Lake City, UT
A postdoctoral researcher position will open at the Nora Eccles Harrison Cardiovascular Research and Training Institute (CVRTI), School of Medicine, University of Utah. CVRTI is a cardiac research institute located at the University of Utah’s Health Sciences Center. The focus of CVRTI’s research is cardiac electrophysiology and ion transport from the molecular to the whole organ level. For more information go to http://www.cvrti.utah.edu.
The postdoctoral fellowship is for research on structural and functional remodeling of cardiac cells from heart failure patients. The research project will be funded by the National Institutes of Health. Studies will be in close collaboration with Dr. Stavros Drakos, School of Medicine, University of Utah, and other investigators of the Utah Cardiac Recovery Program (UCAR).
The position is initially for 2 years and can be extended. The University of Utah offers a competitive package for salary and benefits.
Candidates will be evaluated on research ability and required expertise. The ideal candidate should have a PhD, MD or equivalent doctorate preferably with experience in cardiac experimental research, in particular, on microstructure, electrophysiology and calcium signaling of cardiomyocytes. Candidates must be self-motivated and independent thinkers with excellent communication and writing skills. The successful candidate is expected to apply state-of-the-art microscopic imaging of tissues and cells to quantitatively characterize structure-function relationships in human hearts in advanced failure and after unloading with left ventricular assist devices.
Qualified individuals should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to:
Frank B. Sachse, PhD
Associate Professor of Bioengineering
