Science jobs from University of Washington:
Highly motivated Postdoctoral Researchers are invited to join Dr. Wang's laboratory in the Mitochondria and Metabolism Center (MMC) at the University of Washington (UW) Medical School. This is a full-time research position supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The Wang Lab is located in the South Lake Union (SLU) campus of UW. We are conducting highly innovative studies dissecting mitochondrial function and dysfunction in eukaryotic cells. Specifically, our focuses are on mitochondrial metabolism, ion homeostasis, free radical generation and mitochondrial dynamics. We have developed unique approaches to modulate mitochondrial metabolism, free radical generation and morphology in vivo or under physiologically relevant conditions. We are currently dissecting the cross-talks among mitochondrial calcium, reactive oxygen species and energy metabolism to delineate the molecular mechanism of mitochondrial dysfunction in cardiovascular disease, including heart failure and ischemia reperfusion injury. To obtain more information about our ongoing projects and methodology, please visit the website:

Interested researchers with MD, PhD or MD/PhD degrees in biomedical or biological field are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will be self-motivated, be able to work independently, and have considerable experience in molecular biology, cell biology, physiology or signaling transduction. Previous experience with metabolic disease models, cardiovascular disease, optical microscopy or rodent surgery is a plus. Good organization skills, teamwork skills, fluency in English, and proficiency in standard computer applications are necessary.

To apply, please email your cover letter describing previous research experience and career goals, your CV and the contact information of referees to:
