The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine in the Department of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Assistant Professor positions in the non-tenure research track. Expertise is required in the specific area of myocardial biology, cardiomyocyte physiology and/or genetic cardiomyopathies.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include assessments of in vitro contractility and calcium homeostasis in cardiomyocytes with and without genetic manipulations, including both adult cardiomyocytes and iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes.
