  • Post-doctoral position available immediately

    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 []

    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
    the Training Program website for further information on eligibility,
    application procedures and description:
