The candidate will work on a project to study the epitranscriptomic (m6A) mechanisms in heart failure and cardiorenal syndrome. Specifically the candidate will address the role of FTO, an m6A demethylase, in cardiac remodeling, cardiomyocyte contraction and cardiac regeneration. The daily responsibilities may include, but not limited to developing hypothesis, designing and conducting scientific experiments, recording and analyzing data, aseptic cell cultures, isolation and preparation of exosomes from cells, tissues and biological fluids, RNA and protein analysis, tissue harvesting and experiments involving animals, microscopy, flow cytometry and histology etc.
We are looking for highly motivated individuals with a PhD or MD/PhD in Biotechnology, Molecular or Vascular Biology. The candidate should be independent, self-motivated and have excellent verbal and written communication skills. Experience in cell/tissue culture, animal models and/or molecular biology is a plus, but not required.
