Open Position for Postdoctoral Researcher
Updated: Jul 4, 2022
Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Fellowship at Baylor University. The area of investigation includes studies in mechanobiology, mitochondria, cell metabolism, and extracellular vesicle-based biomarker research in cardiovascular disease and neurodegeneration.
A review of applications will begin immediately, and the position will remain open until filled. Only selected applicants will be contacted for an interview. To apply, interested candidates should submit a single PDF file including 1) a cover letter with a statement of research experience and interest; 2) curriculum vitae (including a list of publications and research skills); and 3) a list of at least two references who have been associated with the candidate's previous work (including names and email address) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
