Job Openings

Faculty

The Department of Physiology and the Saha Cardiovascular Research Center at University of Kentucky’s College of Medicine, is seeking candidates for two full time tenure track faculty positions at the ASSISTANT, ASSOCIATE or FULL PROFESSOR levels. Areas of strength in the department include basic and translational research on Cardiovascular Physiology. The successful candidate will have a MD and/or PhD in a related field, appropriate postdoctoral experience, the potential to establish an extramurally-funded research program, and will participate in physiology education. Candidates will contribute to the teaching, advising, research, and service missions of the Department and College. Applications also are welcome from faculty with existing research programs willing to relocate. Applicants are sought with research interest in any area of physiology that aligns with the department strength in the broad area of cardiac or vascular physiology.

Postdoctoral Scholar

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for a motivated, ambitious, and talented scientist at the University of Kentucky to study the mechanisms of aortic aneurysms in the Subramanian lab. Our laboratory mainly focuses on the role of calpains (J Cardiovasc Phamacol, 2012, PMID: 21964156; PLoS One 2013, PMID: 23977256; Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol, 2016, PMID: 26966280) in the development of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
Small laboratory animal models, molecular biology, biochemistry and pathology techniques are the main research approaches for these studies. Candidates should have a doctoral degree in biochemistry, molecular biology, or related field, and strong background in small animal model systems, cell culture, biochemical and molecular biology techniques. Ability to work both independently and cooperatively within a team is essential. Applicants should send a CV, a brief research statement, career goal and the names/contact information of three people who could provide letters of reference.
