Job summary: The lab of Henry Sucov is newly relocated to MUSC and has funding and projects for several new postdocs. Dr. Sucov is a SmartState endowed professor in the Dept. of Regenerative Medicine and as well in the Div. of Cardiology at MUSC. Among other approaches, the lab uses genetic strategies in mice to identify pathways and processes that impact cardiomyocyte proliferation and heart regeneration after adult heart injury (Patterson 2017 Nature Genetics, PMID 28783163) and neonatal heart injury (Shen 2018, submitted), with surprisingly extensive application to human genetics and human heart pathophysiology. In addition to gene/pathway discovery and associated mechanisms specifically relevant to heart regeneration, related projects address heart physiology, drug discovery, developmental biology, and bioengineering. These projects are sophisticated, novel, and critically important, and all are in need of new personnel. Candidates should contact Dr. Sucov directly by email ([email protected]) to discuss these opportunities.
