The Halushka lab is hiring a postdoctoral student with proteomics experience to embark on a cutting edge program to evaluate the proteome of the cardiomyocyte intercalated disc. The lab is also hiring a postdoctoral student or graduate student to investigate expression changes in atherosclerosis. Inquiries welcome. Funding is secured for both positions.
The laboratory has an extramurally funded grant to embark on a cutting-edge project exploring the proteome of the cardiac myocyte intercalated disc and the role of protein trafficking in arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy. We are recruiting a hardworking, independent-minded post-doctoral fellow with experience in quantitative targeted proteomics. Applicants must be familiar with protein sample preparation and hands-on familiarity with mass spectrometers. The trainee will be co-mentored with Dr. Avi Rosenberg.
Minimum education/training: PhD in a proteomics field or a closely related field.
Molecular Biology Position
The laboratory focuses on miRNAs, cardiovascular disease, and expression localization. The laboratory has a new R01 to support a cutting-edge project exploring expression alterations in atherosclerosis. A postdoc is needed to lead this project. Specific tasks will be to develop new methods related to miRNA expression and RNA-ISH. General molecular biology skills including cell culture, PCR, and working with RNA are needed. No animal work is proposed for the project. Applicants must be hardworking and independent-minded.
Minimum education/training: PhD in a molecular biology or closely related field.
To apply for either position, please send your CV including 3 references to Marc Halushka at firstname.lastname@example.org
