Job Summary

The Brody laboratory in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Michigan is looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow with a strong background in biochemistry, molecular biology, mouse genetics, and/or cardiac physiology.  Our research is broadly focused on the molecular signals in cardiomyocytes that underlie cardiac disease onset and progression with a particular focus on signaling by GTPases.  We have a specific interest in understanding how intracellular signaling is compartmentalized and regionally controlled by lipid modifications that modulate the function of signaling molecules in various cell types of the heart to control cardiac physiology and pathogenesis.  Successful candidates will utilize a combination of mouse genetics, biochemistry, and molecular and chemical biology techniques to gain insight into pathophysiological signaling mechanisms that contribute to human cardiovascular disease.  Skilled and motivated scientists with an interest in molecular and cellular cardiology are strongly encouraged to apply.


Mission Statement

Michigan Medicine improves the health of patients, populations and communities through excellence in education, patient care, community service, research and technology development, and through leadership activities in Michigan, nationally and internationally.  Our mission is guided by our Strategic Principles and has three critical components; patient care, education and research that together enhance our contribution to society.


Required Qualifications*

PhD or equivalent degree in a relevant field (i.e. biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology).

In order to be considered for this position the applicant must have met or will have met all the required qualifications prior to the start date of employment.
