Post-doctoral research fellowship available starting July 2017 on NIH funded T32 training grant focused on providing multi-disciplinary multi-modality training in molecular and translational cardiovascular imaging for highly qualified fellows holding either a MD or/and PhD, in preparation for academic careers as independent investigators in the highly clinically relevant field of cardiovascular imaging. Post-doctoral fellowship training will be 2-3 years in duration. The research focus will be to utilize innovative cardiovascular imaging modalities to understand pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension, focusing on both the right ventricular response and the pulmonary vascular remodeling, using experimental rodent models and cell based studies using human patient derived cell lines. Trainee will have full access to resources available through the Yale Cardiovascular Research Center and the Yale Translational Research Imaging Center, including: small and large animal surgical suite, fluoroscopy suite, 3D ultrasound, 64 slice SPECT/CT, microSPECT/CT, microCT, and optical imaging, along with other institutional resources, including; PET/CT, and MRI.
