Job Summary

The Ganesh lab is seeking talented Postdoctoral Research Fellow candidates for human genetics studies of cardiovascular disease. We are conducting gene discovery studies using genome sequencing, GWAS and transcript expression profiling methods to understand both common and rare vascular diseases. We use in vitro cellular and in vivo models to assess the functional significance of our genomic discoveries. Our studies are closely tied to the clinic, with human tissue and blood samples from meticulously phenotyped patients and thus candidates can expect to gain exposure to translational aspects of their research projects. We have several data sets and reagents already generated (exome sequencing, GWAS genotyping, cellular and mouse models) that provide a rich opportunity for productivity and publications for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow.

Candidates should have publications in genomics, molecular genetics or vascular biology fields with an interest in human genetics. The ideal candidate is highly motivated to learn solid scientific methods and to write manuscripts and grant applications.

The laboratory has multiple NIH and non-NIH sources of funding.

Required Qualifications*

M.D. or Ph.D. required.  Basic science discipline preferred, such as molecular biology, cell biology, or vascular biology.  Candidates with computational skills are also encouraged to apply.

Work Schedule

40 hours, full-time.  Days -- hours negotiable.

Additional Information

Interested candidates should contact Dr. Santhi Ganesh, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, with current resume or CV and references.  Email --
