The UMMC Cardiovascular-Renal Research Center is recruiting postdoctoral fellows to train in cardiovascular and renal research. The center is an interdisciplinary research program that involves a wide range of basic and clinical research, including genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms, and integrative physiology of cardiovascular and renal disease in a variety of animal models.
The center currently has over 65 members actively involved in biomedical research. Areas of research emphasis include: renal and molecular mechanisms of hypertension, obesity and metabolic diseases, fetal programming of cardiovascular diseases, gender differences in cardiovascular-renal disease, microcirculation, immune mechanisms in cardiovascular and renal disease, pregnancy and preeclampsia, vascular biology, genetics of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases, stroke, endothelial biology, angiogenesis and neuro-endocrine control of the circulation.
Members of the center receive extramural support from a variety of sources, such as the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association. The center is also funded by a NHLBI Institutional Training Grant entitled “Hypertension and Cardiorenal Diseases Research Training Program."
Applicants must have a PhD, MD, or comparable degree. Send curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and the names of three references to David E. Stec, PhD, Director, Cardiovascular-Renal Research Center at UMMC, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
