The Department of Genomics, Genetics and Informatics, University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital has availability for postdoctoral fellow (PhD and/or MD) with expertise in standard animal physiology and cardiac phenotyping techniques such as rodent echocardiography, electrocardiography, stress and behavioral tests to study cardiac diseases in a large cohort of mouse colonies. The research involving animal model combines basic molecular, biochemical and physiologic studies. Knowledge in basic molecular biology and functional genomics to study genetics, molecular mechanisms, and pathogenesis of human diseases is desired. The selected candidates will be actively involved in all aspects of these studies. As the study involves multidisciplinary cardiovascular and genetic research, we offer excellent training opportunities, creative and innovative work environment and interactions with many other laboratories and core facilities, including the sequencing center, bioinformatics and genomics cores, and animal facilities. We value a research environment with an emphasis on personal and work ethics, respect to others, good communication skills and productive collaboration.
