The Dutta Lab (https://duttalab.pitt.edu) in the Department of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh investigates the cellular and molecular mechanisms in inflammation in cardiovascular disease, particularly myocardial infarction and atherosclerosis. This position provides an opportunity for excellent career development, and work with a dynamic group of highly productive, and NIH and AHA-funded investigators in a Medical School Research Foundation environment studying important and exciting aspects of myeloid cells, and hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. We have recently shown that immunological and sympathetic nervous system activation leads to exacerbated progression of cardiovascular disease (Immunity, 2018; Science Translational Medicine, 2016; Cell Stem Cells, 2015; Journal of Experimental Biology, 2015 and Nature, 2012). Our current research interests are focused on:
1. The role of cellular metabolism in innate inflammation.
2. Regulation of myeloid cell generation by the sympathetic nervous system.
3. The role of tissue resident macrophages in insulin resistance.
4. The role of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in cardiovascular disease.
We are seeking self-motivated postdoctoral fellow with interpersonal and problem-solving skills, and exceptional publication record. The candidate should have experience with flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and molecular biology. A background in immunology and 2-photon microscopy would be a plus point.
