Postdoctoral Scholar - Heart and Vascular Research Center at The MetroHealth System

Our laboratory locates in the Heart & Vascular Research Center at the MetroHealth campus of Case Western Reserve University, and is recruiting a full-time postdoctoral scholar to study molecular mechanisms of cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmia at cellular and whole-organ levels. We are using epigenetic reprogramming, stem cells and animal models to understand how cardiomyocytes maintain their specific identifies and automaticity and develop new therapeutic approaches for cardiac regeneration medicine and anti-arrhythmia, which have been funded by the National Institute of Health. We are looking for a candidate who is interesting in cardiac physiology and electrophysiology and dedicates his/her career to antiarrhythmic therapy and cardiac regenerative medicine.

Required Qualifications
PhD or MD with an emphasis in physiology, biology, or medical sciences is required. Previous experience on cellular electrophysiology, animal or whole heart functional study is highly desired. A track record of publications in PubMed-indexed journals is desirable.

NIH standard salary with fringe benefits of Case Western Reserve University.

Please send the CV, including the contact information of three references, to Dr. Jidong Fu.
