  • Postdoctoral opportunity in heart valve mechanobiology -University of Toronto

    A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study the molecular
    mechanisms by which the mechanobiological properties of the extracellular
    matrix regulate aortic valve calcification. There is opportunity to
    initiate and pursue additional projects within the general scope of aortic
    valve calcification and mechanobiology.

    The successful applicant will work in a collaborative, interdisciplinary
    environment in the Institute of Biomaterials & Biomedical Engineering at
    the University of Toronto, with access to state-of-the-art facilities and
    local expertise in biomedical engineering, biomaterials, and cardiovascular
    biology. For more information, visit,, and

    Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D., a strong publication record, good
    communication skills, and be able to work effectively in a team-oriented
    research environment. Prior experience with immunochemistry, molecular
    biology, cell culture, and animal models is desirable. Appointment will be
    made for one year with the option of renewal.

    Qualified candidates should send a curriculum vitae, a brief summary of
    research interests and experience, and contact information of three
    references via e-mail to:
