Emory University School of Medicine is seeking postdoctoral researchers (Renal Medicine)
Two postdoctoral research positions are available in the human physiology laboratory of Dr. Jeanie Park at Emory University School of Medicine. The laboratory is housed on Emory University’s main campus and at the Atlanta VA Medical Center Clinical Studies Center. Dr. Park’s research focuses on the regulation of the sympathetic nervous system in humans at high cardiovascular risk. Funded projects include investigations of sympathetic control during exercise in chronic kidney disease, mechanisms of intradialytic hypertension in end-stage renal disease, and sympathetic regulation during stress in patients with stress-related disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The lab also engages in clinical trials testing benefits of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions on sympathetic control in patients with CKD and PTSD.
The successful candidate will have an MD, a PhD, or another doctoral degree in physiology or a related field. Experience with human physiology research techniques, ultrasound, and/or microneurography is preferred, but not essential. Salary is commensurate with NIH guidelines. Interested candidates should forward inquiries, a CV, statement of research interests, and contact information for three references to Jeanie Park, MD at email@example.com.
