Postdoctoral positions are available immediately at junior/senior levels for motivated MD or PhD applicants committed to molecular and cellular studies of the heart. Our work examines molecular signaling and the molecular basis of arrhythmogenesis, calcium sparks and transients, membrane currents, phosphatase behavior, macromolecular complexes, anchoring proteins, cytoskeleton, and contractile dysfunction in heart failure.
The positions offer a broad learning opportunity in a multi-disciplinary research group at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the Medical Biotechnology Center funded through an NIH Interdisciplinary Training Program in Muscle Biology and an NIH Program Project Grant in Heart Failure with particular emphasis on signaling mechanisms in regulating cardiac contractile function, remodeling and gene expression in heart failure.
Background in cellular physiology, molecular biology, patch clamp experiments, transgenic animals and functional genomics will be considered favorably. Interested applicants can examine our web sites: Terry Rogers, Robert Bloch, and W. J. Lederer. To apply, send (1) a letter of application, (2) up-to-date CV, (3) statement of long-term goals, and (4) three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org or (fax) 410-706-6676.
