Traumatic Injury and Myocardial Ischemic Injury (2 Positions)
Posted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2017-Apr-20
Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately for highly motivated candidates with a strong background in 1) traumatic injury or 2) myocardial ischemic injury to join the Translational Research Program at the Shock Trauma and Anesthesiology Research (STAR) Center at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, USA.
Our research focuses on mechanisms and modulation of innate immune responses, tissue injury, organ dysfunction, miRNA/anti-miRNA biology, and exosomes in two disease models: polytrauma and ischemic myocardial injury. The two projects are funded by Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health. For your convenience, here is the link:
A Ph.D. degree is required with training in physiology, immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, and/or a related field; Primary cell culture, biochemistry/molecular biology, immunology, and cardiac physiology are desirable.
The postdoctoral scholar will be mentored to facilitate their transition to an independent research career through the acquisition of writing and presentation skills and through the development of national and international collaborations.
- Ph.D. in cardiovascular biology or related field
- Experience in cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury or trauma research
- Experience in molecular and cell biology
- Experience in biochemistry/histology
- Experience in immunology
Interested individuals are encouraged to forward an electronic copy of your curriculum vitae and a brief cover letter that includes the name and contact information for three references to Dr. Wei Chao (wchaosom.umaryland.edu).
