To Investigate the Metabolic Basis of Heart Failure

Postdoctoral fellowship are available in the Lewandowski laboratory at the Ohio State University College for Medicine, providing research opportunities in a multidisciplinary environment for comprehensive studies in both experimental animal models and human myocardium. NIH sponsored research explores the maladaptive metabolic adaptations to pathological and metabolic stress on the heart, and the metabolic consequences of heart failure on the whole body. Research protocols are focusing on the genomic, transcriptional and post-translational regulation of metabolic signaling and flux in pressure overload induced heart failure, diabetic cardiomyopathy, and ischemia/reperfusion. Our goals are to elucidate potential therapeutic targets at the molecular level to mitigate the development and progression of adverse remodeling of the pathologically stressed heart toward overt failure to improve the quality of lives of patients with heart disease.



Successful candidates will have a doctoral degree (PhD, MD/PhD, or MD), a track record of productivity with peer-reviewed publications, strong communication skills, and less than 5 years of prior postdoctoral experience. They will be mentored by Dr. Lewandowski in developing their independent research careers. Expertise in metabolic chemistry or cardiovascular physiology is required. Prior experience in mass spectrometry or NMR spectroscopy is desirable.
