NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGING, NIH, BALTIMORE, MD
The Human Cardiovascular Studies Unit/Laboratory of Cardiovascular Science (LCS), a major component of the Intramural Research Program at the National Institute on Aging (NIA), is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow with interest in age-associated changes in arterial stiffness and arterial-ventricular coupling.
A major research focus of the Human Cardiovascular Studies Unit is exploring the age-associated changes in cardiovascular structure and function utilizing large, prospective, population-based studies. Since 1988, we have been performing serial comprehensive cardiovascular assessments using echocardiogram, multigated acquisition (MUGA) scans, exercise stress test, arterial applanation tonometry, and more recently magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on participants from Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging and SardiNIA (A large prospective study conducted in SardiNIA, Italy). Extensive databases of these cardiovascular traits are available to test novel hypotheses on cardiovascular aging and identify targets for preventive interventions. We also work in collaboration with the Division of Cardiology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, on state-of-art research projects including MRI assessment of coronary endothelial function among other projects.
We are looking for candidates with research interests and experience in the related fields of arterial stiffness and arterial-ventricular coupling, and familiarity with analyzing data from non-invasive techniques such from applanation tonometry, or cardiovascular imaging using MRI. Candidates are also expected to have statistical background as well as strong writing skills. Fellowship duration is up to 2-3 years. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in, epidemiology, physiology, biomedical engineering, or M.D., with less than five years of postdoctoral research experience. Salary is in accordance with NIH post-doctoral fellowship salary/stipend guidelines, and commensurate with experience and accomplishments.
Please send curriculum vitae, a brief description of research interests, and three letters of reference to:
