As part of an exciting expansion of research within the Pulmonary Division of the Indiana University School of Medicine, a new postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Tim Lahm to study the molecular basis of pulmonary hypertension, with an emphasis on angiogenesis and sex differences. In particular, the Lahm lab focuses on understanding the role of sex hormones in lung vascular remodeling, right ventricular hypertrophy and angiogenesis. Research opportunities include characterizing the role of estrogen receptor signaling in right ventricular cardiomyocytes and endothelial cells, and studying mechanisms of angiogenesis in the lung and right ventricle. Research in the Lahm lab spans a wide range of models and techniques and ranges from molecular investigations in cultured cells to characterizing hemodynamic and exercise endpoints in vivo. The Division provides a highly collaborative environment that includes shared core facilities and joint research meetings. Our genomics and bioinformatics facilities include state-of-the-art single cell sequencing and high performance computing. An NIH-funded T32 Training Program is in place. Detailed information is available on our website: https://medicine.iu.edu/faculty/4963/lahm-tim/
Applicants should be highly self-motivated and self-sufficient with PhD or MD. Expertise in vascular biology, molecular biology and animal studies are desirable, but not required. Excellent communication skills and a team player mentality are required.
