The Rouf Lab in the Internal Medicine Department/Division of Cardiovascular Medicine is seeking a highly-motivated, independent, and bright experimentalist for a Research Laboratory Specialist position. This new lab at Michigan Medicine studies the role of nonmyocytes (i.e., fibroblast, endothelial, and immune cells) and sex differences in the pathogenesis of cardiomyopathy and valvular heart disease. Projects include genetic and pharmacologic targeting of cell-type specific pathways to ameliorate or reverse cardiovascular disease; characterization of cardiac and valvular phenotypes in murine models; and collaborative projects to recapitulate human cardiovascular disease in vitro to identify novel therapeutic agents. We are a highly collegial lab looking for an individual that contributes to a positive work environment.

The candidate's role will be to assist the laboratory director in managing multiple research projects and mentoring and training junior scientists in the lab.

The individual will be a key member of a team of investigators and work very closely with the laboratory director and collaborators. Depending on stage and productivity there will be opportunities to participate in assembling manuscripts and attending national meetings.

The laboratory director is an advanced heart failure physician-scientist at the Frankel Cardiovascular Center with extensive training in molecular biology and engineering approaches to understanding pathobiology of cardiovascular disease. This position offers the benefits of an independent spacious lab location at the North Campus Research Complex which has an on-site gym, exercise classes and childcare. Lab members will meet with the laboratory director weekly which provides opportunities for further discussion about many scientific topics including heritable cardiomyopathy, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and strategies to elucidate the role of sex differences in these cardiovascular diseases.
