A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Iain Scott, studying mitochondrial bioenergetics, lysine acetylation and cellular metabolism in the heart. The successful candidate will use novel animal models to investigate the role played by altered mitochondrial metabolism in the pathophysiology of heart failure, ischemia-reperfusion injury and/or diabetic cardiomyopathy.

The Pittsburgh Heart, Lung and Blood Vascular Medicine Institute (VMI) at the University of Pittsburgh houses several independent laboratories performing cutting edge basic and translational cardiovascular research. Postdoctoral researchers in the VMI have access to exceptional core facilities (NextGen Sequencing, Biological Imaging, Metabolomics, Flow Cytometry, etc.), and benefit from the unique career and mentoring opportunities available in the VMI (please see http://www.vmi.pitt.edu/training.html for details of currently available training programs).
A PhD, MD, or MD/PhD required. The successful candidate will have excellent written and verbal English communication skills, along with experience in cell culture, molecular and biochemical assays, and studies involving small animals. Particular consideration will be given to candidates with demonstrated experience in mouse models of cardiovascular disease. Eligibility to apply for NIH Fellowships and/or T32 Training Grant positions would also be a distinct advantage.
