  • Postdoc position on NIH-funded collaborative project:

A postdoctoral research position is available immediately in the Department of Physiology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA on a new collaborative NIH R01 project. This position is available to investigate the effects of chronic nicotine inhalation on the homeostasis of the renin-angiotensin system and the development of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. A multidisciplinary approach will be employed combining the state-of-the-art nicotine delivery system, cardiac function tests (echocardiogram, pressure-volume recording), pulmonary function measurement (whole-body plethysmography, FlexiVent), and blood pressure monitoring (mouse telemetry). In addition, transgenic and knockout mouse models will be employed to dissect the molecular mechanisms of how chronic nicotine inhalation alters components of the renin-angiotensin system and predisposes nicotine users to cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. Ideal candidates with a recent PhD in Physiology or a related discipline are encouraged to apply. Candidates with a background in nicotine pharmacology or cardiovascular and pulmonary function regulation are highly desirable. Interested applicants should send their resume and the names of 3 references to Dr. Jason Gardner ( LSUHSC is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
