    POST-DOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE in Vascular Mechanics and Hemodynamics

    A post-doctoral research associate is sought to study the role of
    extracellular matrix proteins in vascular biomechanics and/or the effects of
    vascular biomechanical changes on pulmonary hemodynamics pulmonary
    hypertension. The overall goal of our research is to better understand the
    causes of right ventricular failure in this disease state and devise novel

    This position is NIH-funded and will interface with a multidisciplinary team
    that includes cell and molecular biologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists
    and radiologists. The candidate should have extensive, demonstrated
    experience in biomechanics and vascular biology -- and/or -- fluid dynamics
    and the pulmonary circulation. Demonstrated abilities to work with animal
    tissues, troubleshoot, run and modify experimental systems (controlled by PC
    and LabView), conduct biological assays, summarize data, perform appropriate
    statistical analyses and interpret results are essential; prior experience
    with mouse colonies is a plus. The successful candidate will mentor
    graduate and undergraduate students, have excellent English speaking and
    writing skills in order to communicate effectively and provide assistance
    with written submissions (e.g., grant proposals, manuscripts, abstracts,
    animal care protocols, etc.).

    Candidates with doctoral-level training in biomedical engineering or a
    related field and with significant knowledge and training in cardiovascular
    physiology and pathophysiology are encouraged to apply. Also, candidates
    must already have (or easily obtain) authorization to work in the United
    States. Please direct inquiries and CVs (and three references) to:
