A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study the role of
arterial stiffening in the progression of pulmonary hypertension. Studies
will be performed in patients and animal models of the disease. Human
studies focus on analysis of pressure-flow and pulmonary vascular
morphometric data obtained with invasive and non-invasive methods including
state-of-the-art 4-D fast acquisition MR methods available at the University
of Wisconsin. Animal studies focus on the molecular mechanisms that
determine the progression of pulmonary hypertension with particular
attention to vascular mechanics, pulsatile pulmonary hemodynamics and right
ventricular function.

The successful candidate will work as part of a multidisciplinary team of
engineers, physiologists, clinicians and medical physicists. S/he must have
an MD or PhD (or expect to be awarded one shortly) in a relevant discipline
(Biomedical Engineering, Physiology or Cardiovascular Medicine or
equivalent) and will have experience in project management. The role
requires that you have the ability to work both independently and as part of
a multidisciplinary team. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
are essential.

Qualified applicants should submit 1) a current CV/resume; 2) a letter of
interest, describing research accomplishments and future career plans; and
3) names and contact information of three references via email to: Naomi C.
Chesler, PhD [Chesler@engr.wisc.edu]

Salary level will be commensurate with previous experience and within the
constraints of the position. We are currently accepting applications for
this immediate opening and will continue until the position is filled.

Note, one funding source for this position may be possible through the UW
Cardiovascular Research Center's Training Program in Translational
Cardiovascular Science. For funding through this mechanism, the candidate
must be a US citizen or permanent resident of the United States. Please see
