The Cardiovascular Research Laboratory at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) represents a collaboration among basic and translational scientists in Vascular Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery, and Cardiology. For those interested in Vascular Surgery, this team science approach supports complex investigations into the cell biology and pathophysiology of hypertension, abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), and thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA). MD and PhD applicants are encouraged to apply with an opportunity to be funded by an institutional NIH T32 grant entitled "Training to Improve Cardiovascular Drug Therapies" whereby the post-doctoral participants benefit from weekly seminars to enrich the training experience. More specifically, the program is interested in providing scientific training to general surgery and integrated vascular surgery residents who are contemplating a career as an academic surgeon. In addition to hands-on instruction in benchtop and microsurgical techniques, the participant would become facile in completing basic statistical analysis, compiling presentations, and composing manuscripts. Attending educational conferences with the MUSC Division of Vascular Surgery is also encouraged.

We are currently recruiting to fill this position and the training experience complies with the academic calendar (running July 1 to June 30 each year with an opportunity to train for 2 years).
