Department: Cardiovascular Research Center
Posting Date: 04-24-2017
The Robert M. Berne Cardiovascular Research Center at the University of Virginia seeks candidates for a tenure ineligible Instructor of Research to assist an assigned laboratory to investigate rigorous high impact studies to elucidate mechanisms that regulate the pathogenesis of late stage atherosclerotic lesions and obesity-metabolic disease.
Although outstanding candidates in all areas of biomedical science will be considered, preference will be given to individuals with strong experience/expertise in: 1) the mechanisms by which Oct4 and Klf4 regulate the phenotype and function of perivascular cells during diet induced obesity-metabolic disease; 2) the role of SMC necroptosis and the necroptotic regulatory genes RIP1 and MLKL in the development of atherosclerosis and late stage lesion pathogenesis; and 3) the role of RIP1 and MLKL in regulating SMC phenotype-function during development of diet induced obesity-metabolic disease.
Candidates will also be expected to seek extramural research grants to help support research projects. Further, the incumbent will be responsible for generating abstracts and manuscripts of sufficient quality to be published in high impact journals.
Applicants must have a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree by the start date, as well as excellent written and oral communication skills. Eligibility for NIH post-doctoral fellowship funding is important, but not mandatory.
