POST-DOCTORAL ASSOCIATE (Job Code: NS001)
Testosterone and blood pressure dysregulation in women with PCOS

Applications are invited for an NIH-funded Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in the laboratory of Dr. Nina Stachenfeld at The John B. Pierce Laboratory, with coterminous appointment in the Yale School of Medicine.

LABORATORY FOCUS:
Dr. Stachenfeld’s NIH funded studies focus on blood pressure regulation in women. These studies address the role of sex steroids in blood pressure dysregulation in women with reproductive and metabolic disorders, including Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

Our current emphasis is on testosterone effects on autonomic blood pressure regulation using pharmaceutical, lower body negative pressure and microneurography strategies in humans. This project provides a unique opportunity to collaborate in a multicenter grant that also includes animal models and molecular strategies.

Our program provides a rich environment with access to workshops, seminars, and all training and career mentoring programs available through the Pierce Laboratory and through the Yale School of Medicine and University systems. We emphasize team and individualized mentoring to maximize our trainees’ success towards an independent career.

REQUIREMENTS:
The successful candidate should have strong motivation, good communication skills and the ability to work independently. Candidates with prior experience in human cardiovascular research are encouraged to apply. Prior experience with microneurography in humans is highly desirable, but not necessary.

The postdoctoral associate will be expected to participate in experimental design, data collection, analysis, and interpretation and preparation of oral and scientific reports.

Required qualifications include a Ph.D. or foreign equivalent.

TO APPLY:
Interested candidates should submit a single PDF file to Dr. Stachenfeld (pdcardio@jbpierce.org) including:
1) A cover letter with a statement of research experience and interest.
2) Curriculum vitae
3) A list of three references.
