Job description

Position Summary

A Research Associate (postdoctoral) position is available in the laboratory of Jason Bazil in the Department of Physiology at Michigan State University.

The primary goal is to investigate and characterize the molecular events that regulate calcium-induced, reactive oxygen species-sensitized, mitochondrial dysfunction in the ischemia/reperfusion injury model. A computational approach will be used to integrate experimental data into a quantitative framework and aid in interpreting the bioenergetic and physiological changes associated with mitochondrial dysfunction in cardiac myocytes.

Required Degree

Doctorate -Biomedical Sciences/Engineering

Minimum Requirements

Requirements include a Ph.D. and experience and knowledge of computational physiology and dynamical systems modeling. 

Desired Qualifications

Knowledge in enzyme kinetics and mitochondrial physiology are desired. 

Qualified candidates will have demonstrated a dedication to scholarly research, excellent communication skills, and possess the ability to work independently and in a collaborative, team environment.

Required Application Materials

Applicants should include a CV, cover letter summarizing career objectives and past accomplishments, and three professional references. References will be contacted only if the department requests.
