A postdoctor position to study molecular mechanisms of smooth muscle dysfunction in vascular diseases

Job Description

A postdoctor position is available to work on the molecular mechanism of smooth muscle cell (SMC) phenotypic modulation in vascular development and vascular diseases including atherosclerosis and aneurysms. The background literature of our current research is PMID: 20224039, 21183509, 29284006.

The major responsibility are:

  • Characterize the molecular mechanisms of cytoskeletal proteins, transcription factors epigenetic factors and extracellular matrix in regulating SMC gene expression and vascular pathology in age-related vascular diseases using in vitro cell culture and mouse vascular injury models.
  • Assist the PI to prepare grant applications and manuscripts.
  • Assist the PI to train graduate and undergraduate students.

Qualified candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • Have a Ph.D degree or MD/PhD degree.
