The Morotti and Grandi Labs at the Department of Pharmacology, University of California Davis, seek two Postdoctoral Scholars to develop computational multi-scale models of cardiac and vascular smooth signaling and electrophysiology. The labs utilize computational approaches and theory to study molecular, cellular, and tissue-level mechanisms that mediate cardiovascular responses to stress and to identify targeted pharmacological approaches to arrhythmia and
cardiovascular dysfunction. The Postdoctoral Scholars will perform research on NIH-funded research projects aimed at developing physiologically-detailed descriptions of heterocellular cardiac and vascular tissue.
Candidates must hold a PhD in bioengineering, applied math, physics, biophysics, or closely related fields by the start date and lead-author publication(s) in computational biology. Candidates must also have strong communication skills and the ability to work both independently and as part of a collaborative team. Prior experience in cardiac modeling and MATLAB/C++ programming is preferred. Some experience with experimental cell electrophysiology is a plus.
For questions about the position and/or to apply, please send a CV, cover letter, and contact information for three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The positions will remain open until filled. Salary depends on experience, in accordance with NIH Guidelines. The University of California Davis is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, veterans and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
