Multiple postdoctoral scientist positions are immediately available to highly motivated candidates to study leukocyte biology in cardiovascular disease. The successful candidate will utilize molecular, genetic and pharmacological approaches to decipher the signaling pathways that regulate myeloid cell biology in mouse models of cardiac (myocardial infarction, MI) and vascular (atherosclerosis) disease. Prior experience in flow cytometry, multiphoton microscopy, mouse genetics, animal handling, bioinformatics (big data analysis), microbiome and mouse surgical techniques is highly desirable. A background in cardiovascular disease research particularly experience in creating mouse models of atherosclerosis, MI, diabetes is required. Fresh candidates with a Ph.D. in molecular biology, immunology, physiology, pharmacology or a related discipline are encouraged to apply. Eligibility to apply for NIH Training Grants would be a distinct advantage but not necessary.
Requires successful completion of a background check. Selected candidate may be required to complete a pre-employment physical including a drug screen.
The Ohio state University offers a comprehensive compensation package including competitive pay, outstanding benefits including paid parental leave, medical, dental and vision, state retirement options, 100% employer paid tuition to OSU and access to University recreational/sports facilities and activities.
