We are recruiting

Postdoctoral fellow

The Wen lab at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our efforts in profiling immune system responses to inflammation following cardiovascular injuries. Qualified applicants will have multiple opportunities to perform cutting-edge immunological research and collaborate with our interdisciplinary team of an NIH-funded cardiovascular research center focusing on intercellular and intracellular signaling pathways.

The projects will be based on recent discoveries on the receptor integrin signaling and second messengers (cAMP/cGMP/Ca2+): Wen et al. Blood 2022. 139 (24): 3480–3492; Wen et al.
