A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Liu laboratory in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA). The Liu laboratory investigates novel signaling mechanisms of cardiac remodeling and heart failure. The current NIH-funded projects focus on the novel role of programed necrosis in the pathogenesis of heart disease (JCI 2022;132(4):e152297; Circulation 2017;136(8):729; Circulation 2014;130(24):2162). The laboratory utilizes multi-disciplinary approaches including biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, mouse genetics, and cardiovascular physiology to understand the molecular basis of heart disease.
We seek highly motivated individuals with a PhD/MD degree and a strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, or a related field. Experience in cardiovascular biology, animal surgery, and mouse genetics are desirable but not required. It is of note that UW recently adjusted its compensation guidelines to provide highly competitive postdoc salary. Qualified applicants should send their CV, a cover letter describing scientific experience and research interests, and contacts of three referees to: Qinghang (Chris) Liu, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Physiology & Biophysics, University of Washington.
