Senior Fellow in Cardiology

University of Washington

United States

 

Position Description

A renewable, 12-month, postdoctoral position is available in the Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine at the University of Washington to use patient-specific and gene-edited induced pluripotent stem cells to model genetic cardiomyopathies. This is an exciting, collaborative project involving genetics, bioengineering, and stem cell biology. Candidates should be highly motivated and have demonstrated experience in molecular biology and cell culture. Experience with iPSCs is not mandatory but desirable. This position will primarily be in Dr. Daniel Yang’s laboratory with the opportunity to be co-mentored by both Drs. Yang and Chuck Murry.

The postdoctoral fellow will be engaging in an exciting, collaborative project at UW medicine South Lake Union.  We are interested in how cardiomyocytes remodel in acquired and genetic cardiomyopathies. The project involves using biomechanical assays to understanding how cardiomyopathies develop and use novel methods to improve cardiac function via gene delivery or small molecules.
