Los Angeles, CA, United States

A postdoctoral research position in Cardiac Electrophysiology is immediately available in the Nguyen laboratory within the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology and the Cardiovascular Theme at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. The appointment duration is a minimum of two years, with potential for annual extension up to a maximum of five years of total postdoctoral training depending on annual productivity. Our basic and translational research program focuses on defining the mechanisms underlying the synergism of fibrosis and stress in cardiac arrhythmias to drive the discovery of novel therapeutics.

We are seeking a highly motivated, highly productive postdoctoral fellow with a recent MD, PhD, or MD-PhD. Experience and productivity in patch-clamp recording or in fluorescent cardiac optical mapping are required. Critical thinking and troubleshooting skills, meticulous experimental record keeping habits and time management skills are essential. Ability to work independently and collaboratively is necessary. Fluency in English written and verbal communication is important because the postdoctoral fellow will practice writing manuscripts and grant applications and will present research findings in public forums.
