This position is for a talented and ambitious postdoctoral scientist to work on a BHF-funded programme on redox-regulated adaptive pathways in heart failure, with specific focus on metabolism, growth and stress responses. Previous experience in the in vivo characterisation of cardiac function in experimental models of cardiac overload or MI (e.g. with high resolution echocardiography, MRI) and in isolated heart perfusions is highly desirable. The project will also include ex vivo analyses (e.g. histology, immunostaining), cell, molecular biology and metabolomic assays.  Training will be provided in those techniques that are unfamiliar to the appointee.

The postholder will be part of a multi-disciplinary team working on several related aspects of cardiovascular pathophysiology, with access to state-of-the-art laboratory facilities within the King’s BHF Centre of Research Excellence.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 4 years or until 31 May 2024.

The selection process will include a presentation and a panel interview.

For an informal discussion to find out more about the role please contact: Professor Ajay Shah on or 020 7848 5189.
