Post-doctoral Fellowship, Cardiac Mitochondrial Biology, Porter Lab

A post-doctoral fellowship position is available in the lab of George Porter at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), to work on cardiac mitochondrial biology during cardiac development. The NIH-funded project focuses on the role of the mitochondrial chaperone protein, cyclophilin D,  in regulating mitochondrial function and myocyte differentiation in the neonatal heart (see related recent publications: PMIDs 28141792, 29101324, 28530678, 30558250).

Candidates must have a PhD and/or MD in an appropriate discipline, and strong candidates will have demonstrated experience in mitochondrial biology and experience in cardiac physiology and developmental biology would also be considered a strength. Other requirements include excellent English communication skills, and an appropriate visa or permit from the US Department of State if applying from overseas. URMC imposes a 5 year limit on post-doctoral tenure, such that preference will be given to candidates who have recently graduated.

URMC is the largest medical center in western NY, with vibrant post-doctoral and graduate student programs. The Rochester metro area comprises approximately 1 million people and offers excellent arts and cultural resources, as well as world-class outdoor sports and affordable housing. URMC is an equal opportunity employer.
