The Cardiothoracic Surgery Research Laboratory at Baylor College of Medicine is seeking to recruit highly motivated postdoctoral associates to study the molecular mechanisms of vascular injury, repair and remodeling during the development of aortic aneurysms and dissections. We use different techniques in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, vascular biology, and bioengineering in our comprehensive investigation of signal transduction and gene expression regulation during the disease process. Funded by an American Heart Association grant and start immediately. Specifically, the postdocs will:
- Investigate epigenetic modifications and expression regulation of X-chromosome genes in human aortic tissues.
- Study the roles of X-chromosome genes in regulating aortic cell functions.
- Oversee the maintenance of lab equipment and environment.
- MD or PhD.
- Candidates with 3 to 4 years’ experience in epigenetics, gene expression regulation, and cell biology are encouraged to apply.
- Must have strong work ethic as well as excellent organizational, multi-tasking, problem-solving, and communication skills.
Baylor College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Equal Access Employer.
