Cohen-Karni & Gurkar Labs
Exciting joint postdoctoral position is available in the laboratories of Dr. Tzahi Cohen-Karni (CMU) and Dr. Aditi Gurkar (U. Pitt), to work on understanding the role of DNA damage and cellular senescence in the cardiac unit. This position requires knowledge of cardiac metabolism and in-depth technical knowledge of induced pluripotent stem cell derived- cardiomyocytes (iPSc-CM).
The lab utilizes multiple methods including genetics, -omics, protein biochemistry, and drug intervention techniques. This is an excellent opportunity for creative, motivated individuals to make seminal contributions to the field of cardiac aging biology. The incumbent will be expected to lead an independent project in this area.
To apply to this position please submit your CV, a cover letter detailing your research experience, and contact details of three references to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
A PhD, MD, or MD/PhD required. The successful candidate(s) will have excellent written and verbal English communication skills, along with experience in either cell culture, iPSC, molecular and biochemical assays, and studies involving small animals. Experience with mouse models, animal physiology, or CRISPR-based gene editing is desirable. Eligibility to apply for NIH Training Grants would also be a distinct advantage.
Core responsibilities include:
· Experiments with cell culture, cardiac organoids and microfabricated electrophysiological platforms
· Periodical/literature searches to support the analysis
· Manuscript and grant preparation for publication in scientific journals and/or presentations
· Lab maintenance including equipment troubleshooting and ordering required supplies
· Working with undergraduate and graduate students, providing mentorship and research guidance
You should demonstrate:
· Strong Analytical, Organization and Planning Skills.
· Strong Problem-Solving, Reasoning and Interpersonal Skills required
· Microscopy experience is encouraged (experience with both Zeiss and Nikon microscopes preferred)
· Microfabrication Skills (a big plus!)
· Hands-on in vivo animal experiment experience (preferably mouse, and previous experience in writing IACUC protocols)
· Statistical Analysis Skills
· Management Skills for Biological Laboratories
