Postdoc Research Associate for Adult Cardiac Stem Cell Projects
Institute of Molecular Cardiology ( IMC ) established in 2001 at the University of Louisville has demonstrated from Clinical Phase I Study of Cardiac Stem Cells ( SCIPIO ), for the first time in the
world, that adult cardiac stem cells taken from the heart failure patient’s own heart are capable of repairing damage and regenerating new heart muscle — a major discovery that opens exciting
therapeutic options and could revolutionize the practice of cardiology. To conclusively assess the potential of adult cardiac stem cells, the IMC is preparing to launch additional trials as a member
of a prestigious network supported by the National Institutes of Health. These trials will advance our quest to revolutionize the treatment of heart failure and offer hope to millions of patients who
currently have few or no options (for more information, please visit http://louisville.edu/medschool/cardiology/ ). Thus, the IMC is looking for self-motivated and highly productive employee to fill the position of postdoc research associate.
Conduct research experiments for cardiac stem cell projects including DNA cloning, miRNA Array, real-time PCR , Western blotting, ELISA , immunohistochemistry staining, image acquirement
under fluorescent microscope and/or confocal microscope, and stem cell analysis by FACS . Organize and analyze data, assist in the development of new projects in stem cells. Prepare written
reports and documents pertaining to data management, research methodology, and study results. Perform related library research and related duties as assigned. Strong motivation to pursue
research is highly desirable. Prior experience and familiarity with molecular biology, stem cell research, and pathology techniques are highly desirable.
Please send CV, brief statement of research interests, and names of 3 references to Dr. Qianhong Li, Associate Professor of Medicine, University of Louisville, at email@example.com
