Two postdoctoral positions are available in the Myocardial Biology Unit of the Boston University Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts. The focus of the Unit is the pathogenesis of myocardial remodeling and failure, and in particular, the role of reactive oxygen / nitrogen species in mediating myocyte phenotype via their effects on physiology, growth, gene expression and apoptosis. The potential candidates should have a PhD, MD or equivalent. Research areas will include oxidative post-translational protein modifications, cardiomyocyte calcium regulation, and mechanisms of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species generation.
Experience with proteomic techniques, fluorescence imaging, molecular biology protocols, and/or reactive oxygen / nitrogen species chemistry will be helpful. Strong verbal and written communication skills and commitment to team-oriented research are important.
Candidates should submit their curriculum vitae, statement of research and technical expertise, and the names of three references to: Dr. Wilson S. Colucci at firstname.lastname@example.org
