Positions Available

Postdoctoral Position to Investigate Mechanisms of Cardioprotection

A postdoctoral position is immediately available to study the mechanisms involved in the acute activation of estrogen receptors in cardio-protection in the lab of Jean C. Bopassa, Ph.D., Department of Physiology, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio. 
 
The Bopassa Lab uses the Langendorff preparation (ex-vivo), LAD occlusion (in vivo) and trans-aortic constriction (TAC) to investigate the role of sex hormones (estrogen) in ischemia/reperfusion injury and heart failure. Other techniques used in the lab include measures of mitochondrial calcium retention capacity, molecular biology, biochemistry, immumocytochemistry and confocal microscopy. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. or M.D. degree and have a strong publication record.  Experience in rodent’s surgery is desirable. Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of 3 references and a cover letter stating career goals and research interests to Jean C. Bopassa, Assistant Professor, Department of Physiology, School of Medicine, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, San Antonio, TX 78229. Email: bopassa@UTHSCSA.edu
 
All Postdoctoral appointments are designated as security sensitive positions. The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer
