One of the top-ranked universities in the country, Northwestern University, combines innovative technology and pioneering research in a highly collaborative environment that transcends traditional academic boundaries is looking to recruit a highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Pathology for studies of inflammation-resolution in monocytes and macrophages after heart attack and hypoxic wound injury.  Studies will interrogate cell-signaling mechanisms in primary cells by molecular biology.  Mechanistic studies will be coupled with tests of physiological relevance after surgically inducing myocardial infarction in a survival model and compared to human diseased tissue.  In vivo experiments will be assayed by flow cytometry, molecular biology, and histology.  Surgical, echocardiography, flow, and histology skills are not immediately required and can be learned during the course of studies.  A fundamental training in molecular biology is required.  Expertise in flow cytometry is favored. Please see our website at  Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer. Members of historically underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
