For many years, Cleveland Clinic and Lerner Research Institute have been at the forefront of biomedical research. Applicants are invited to fill two unique positions as Cleveland Clinic’s Molecular Cardiology Scholars.

We seek researchers with experience in molecular and cell biology, integrin and growth factor signaling and/or vascular biology and animal models. Applicants must document their success during their PhD or initial postdoctoral studies by first-author publications in reputable journals. The chosen candidates will have an opportunity to work with several PIs on projects interlinking Vascular Biology and Inflammation. The projects integrate molecular and cellular biology approaches (adhesions dynamics, migration in 3D, mechanotransduction) and state-of-the-art in vivo models and multi-photon imaging to address important biomedical problems. We emphasize motivation and productive work in a collegial environment and an opportunity for translational and clinical collaborations. For further details see published works: West et al, Nature, 2010; Ding et al., Cell Metab. 2012; Kerr et al.,  Sci Signal., 2013. Applications from motivated and skilled individuals with MS or BS degrees are also invited for a position of research technologist on these projects.

The institution has a history of offering outstanding benefits to its employees.

Applicants should send curriculum vitae and names and addresses of three references to:

Dr. Tatiana Byzova

A senior experienced Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Associate is needed for a newly-created Director for the Animal Model Core in the Department of Molecular Cardiology at Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute.  Applicants should have experience in mouse surgical procedures such as MI, TAC, thrombosis, vascular injury, and/or other models for cardiovascular diseases.  A successful applicant should have a Ph.D., M.D., or Ph.D./M.D. with excellent communications skills and an interest in independent as well as collaborative research opportunities with other faculty members in the instituteCandidates with a DVM and relevant research or mouse surgery experience will also be considered.

Applicants should send a CV as well as names and contact information of 2-3 referees to:

Dr Qing Wang, Department of Molecular Cardiology, Lerner Research Institute/NB50, Cleveland Clinic, 9500 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44195; Email: wangq2@ccf.org.

A postdoctoral position is available in Ryota Matsuoka’s Laboratory in the Department of Molecular Cardiology at Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute. This newly established group starting in April, 2018, aims to define the cellular and molecular basis of vascular and lymphatic assembly in the central nervous system (CNS) using zebrafish and mouse as model organisms. Dr. Matsuoka’s past work addressed how the vascularization of tissues surrounding the spinal cord is established in zebrafish (Matsuoka et al. eLife, 2016: PNAS, 2017) and how retinal neural circuits are organized in mouse (Matsuoka et al. Nature, 2011: Neuron, 2011). The future lab projects are directed towards understanding dynamic coordination of neuronal and vessel growth at the cellular and molecular level, which leads to the formation of the mature, functional CNS in vertebrates. The lab uses a combination of advanced 3D imaging, forward and reverse genetic approaches to uncover this coordinated process during development and regeneration, with the goal to reconstitute fully vascularized functional neuronal tissues following CNS disease/injury.

The successful applicant is expected to apply for external fellowships, present data at scientific conferences, and prepare manuscripts for publication. Candidates with a publication record in developmental biology, genetics, neuroscience, or cell biology are preferred. Former experiences working with zebrafish or other animal models are also preferred.

Review of applicants will start immediately and continue until the position is filled. The contract will be renewed annually and extended for a period of 4 years and possibly longer, dependent upon satisfactory progress and the lab’s funding situation. Interested individuals should submit a single PDF file containing the following materials to matsuor@ccf.org:

1) CV, including publication list and contact information for 2‐3 references

2) Cover letter describing previous research, research interests, and career goals

Our research team focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying atrial fibrillation, the most common cardiac arrhythmia, and translating findings to clinical utility. We have built a research infrastructure that includes large biorepositories of well characterized human samples with genomic data, embryonic and patient-specific pluripotent stem cells differentiated into cardiomyocytes, and an embryonic stem cell line with stably transfected Cas9 for CRISPR editing. This infrastructure has been used to study gene targets for atrial fibrillation identified by genome-wide association studies and transcriptomic analyses. Under the Center for Cardiovascular Translation and Genomics (CCTG) we are leveraging the infrastructure to identify mechanisms and druggable targets for other cardiovascular conditions and mutations identified from inherited arrhythmias and other heritable cardiovascular diseases.

We are seeking a motivated, independent postdoctoral fellow or research associate who will help lead investigations into the functional mechanisms of atrial fibrillation and other cardiovascular diseases in human cells. Specifically, we are seeking an individual with a solid background in molecular biology and cell culture. Experience in iPS cell programming and differentiation is strongly desired.  Applicants must have a Ph.D. or M.D., excellent verbal and written communication skills in English, a strong publication record, the ability to work and troubleshoot independently, and to design, implement and analyze researh projects. The selected candidate will have opportunities for collaboration with clinicians in the Heart & Vascular Institute and development of core facilities.

Please send your cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for 3 references to Mina Chung, M.D. (chungm@ccf.org)
