This is a full-time position on an annual, 12 month appointment.
The postdoc fellow will participate in NIH-funded research projects covering cellular and molecular/ epigenetic mechanisms controlling cardiomyocyte development/maturation/ dedifferentiation, cell cycle states and endogenous myocardial regeneration. Applicants with strong research experience in cell and molecular biology, pathophysiology and mouse models, will be given the priority. Candidates with at least some experiences in following interdisciplinary aspects are preferred: transgenic mouse models, isolation and culture of cardiomyocytes and other cell lines and primary cells, and bacteria or adenovirus/lentivirus; molecular cloning; protein/DNA/RNA analysis; immunohisto- and cyto-chemistry; flow cytometry; histology; microscopy and imaging techniques. Experience in functional genomics/epigenetics (siRNA, miRNA, histone and DNA modifications) and whole-genome sequencing, and small animal surgeries is highly desirable but not required.
- PhD/MD degree or equivalent in biomedical sciences.
- Research experience in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, and small animal studies.
- Highly motivated, energetic, detail orientated and capable to work and troubleshoot independently and collaboratively.
- Have excellent oral and written communication skills
- Experience in heart development, cardiovascular diseases or regenerative biomedicine.
- Experience in transgenic animal models (with surgery techniques as strength) and isolation of cardiomyocytes.
