Applications are invited for a position of postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin in the areas of Computational and Systems Biology of cardio-myocyte and mitochondrial functions in health and diseases. The Successful candidate will work on an integrative research project built-on combining computational modeling and experimental measurements of cardiac mitochondrial and cellular functions (electrophysiology, bioenergetics, cation homeostasis, reactive oxygen species (ROS) emission) with an overall goal of quantitatively understanding the biophysical and biochemical mechanisms associated with mitochondrial and cellular dysfunctions in cardiac ischemic-reperfusion (IR) injury and related pathologies.
- Applicant must hold Doctorate degree in bioengineering, biomedical engineering, biochemical engineering, biophysics, biochemistry, applied mathematics, or a related scientific field.
- Applicant must have received Ph.D. dissertation within the last 2 years.
- Applicant must possess strong background in cardiovascular physiology and cellular metabolism, mathematical modeling of physiological and metabolic systems, experimental data analyses, computational methods, and scientific and technical computing skills using MATLAB.
- Applicants having experience in computer programming using other languages, such as FORTRAN, C, C++ will be an added advantage.
- Applicant must have solid experience in wet-lab work pertinent to cardiomyocyte and mitochondrial physiology.
- Applicant must possess good communication skills (written and spoken English) and a demonstrable leadership in publishing in peer-reviewed journals and receiving academic excellence.
- Applicant must have a deep aspiration and initiative to learn, and the ability to function as part of a team.
- Applications must be submitted in a single pdf file with following documents
- letter of intent describing qualifications and career objectives
- Publication list
- Three references with contact information who may be contacted.
- Application package and reprints of 3 representative publications must be sent electronically to Dr. Ranjan Dash, Departments of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI-53226 (Email: email@example.com).
- Salary will be based on NIH scale that proportionate with background and experience.
