Berne Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) at the University of Virginia (UVA) School of Medicine is currently seeking a Research Associate (post-doctoral research fellow), MD or PhD, to work and study in an NIH-funded laboratory directed by Dr. Jonathan Lindner. The laboratory has interests at the intersection of biology and non-invasive imaging and is composed of a multidisciplinary team of investigators with expertise in vascular biology, non-invasive imaging, microvascular physiology, and acoustic physics.

The incumbent will participate in a multiplicity of relevant lab projects and in writing study reports for the study sponsors, papers, and grant applications and is expected to develop research programs as time permits. The incumbent will also be expected to attend and participate in laboratory meetings and CVRC-related seminars, as well as work with graduate students, technicians, fellows and collaborators in the laboratories involved in the project.
