National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, Bethesda, Maryland
Position Description:
Translational Vascular Medicine Branch (TVMB) of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) invites applications for a Seninor/Staff Scientist position in the laboratory of Dr. Manfred Boehm. Our Vascular Translational Program aligns with the principles of precision medicine, investigating how individual variations in genes, environment, and lifestyle contribute to vascular disease, particularly in the area of rare genetic diseases. The program links high-throughput sequencing data with novel induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC)-related in vitro/in vivo disease model systems to identify molecular disease mechanisms. The goal is to apply these models to different monogenic diseases to facilitate the development of targeted therapies. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to pursue research interests in an interdisciplinary setting and advance their research career in the supportive intramural environment of the NIH campus, which also includes core facilities specializing in transgenic mice, hiPSCs, advanced microscopy, sequencing, proteomics, biochemistry and bioinformatics.
Qualifications:
We seek a highly motivated, creative and bright individual with expertise in iPSC technology to manage and further establish our patient-specific disease-modeling platform using human iPSCs (hiPSC) and hiPSC-derived vascular as well as inflammatory cell lineages. The candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent with at least 2 years of post-doctoral experience. A good track record of productivity judged by peer reviewed publications is recommended. The successful candidate must have a strong background in molecular biology, iPSC/stem cell biology, genetics and/or vascular biology. In addition, we will look for strong organizational (cell inventory) and technical writing skills as well as good communication as part of a team. Abilities to mentor, teach complex protocols with attention to detail and supervise/manage staff are desired.
To Apply:
Applicants should send their curriculum vitae and a brief statement of research interests/career goals to Andrew Zink, Administrative Officer at zinkaj@nih.gov . If selected for an interview, you will be asked to provide 3 letters of reference.

A competitive salary commensurate with experience and qualifications will be offered with an initial appointment for a minimum of 2 years and then possible appointment renewals in 1 year increments. Appointees must be U.S. citizens, resident non-citizens, or nonresident non-citizens with a valid employment visa. Applications from women, minorities and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged.
