A postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available immediately in the Division of Molecular Cardiovascular Biology in the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Research Foundation.
The Blaxall lab has a long-standing interest in understanding the molecular mechanisms associated with the development and progression of heart failure. We are particularly interested in developing novel treatments for heart failure, and are pursuing several projects with therapeutic potential, including advanced screening, chemistry, and drug development. A major focus is also to understand the role of pathologic intercellular communication between myocyte and non-myocyte (e.g. fibroblast) cells in heart failure pathogenesis.
Candidates with a strong background in signaling, molecular biology and small animal experimentation are encouraged to apply. Prior experience with cardiovascular biology is also desirable, although not required.
Dr. Blaxall's new CCHMC website is still under development so for more information about his research please visit the following websites: http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/service/h/heart-institute/team/
