Open Grad. Research positions at the Chesler Lab University of California, Irvine🇺🇸.
The mission of the Chesler Lab is to improve cardiovascular health through the integration of mechanical engineering, vascular biology and imaging tools, to advance knowledge in these fields, and to educate the next generation of leaders in cardiovascular engineering and science.
Ventricular failure is the most common cause of death in people with cardiovascular disease. The Chesler Lab strives to better understand and prevent ventricular failure by focusing on three aspects of physiology and pathophysiology: ventricular function, blood flow dynamics, and how changes in the large and small arteries alter blood flow dynamics and thus ventricular function.
We are looking for motivated graduate research assistants to join our lab. Please send your current Academic CV and names and contact information for three references to Professor Naomi C. Chesler, email@example.com.
Changes in Pulmonary Hemodynamics With Exercise
A graduate research assistant position is available to study the changes in pulmonary hemodynamics and/or right ventricular function that occur with exercise in patients with pulmonary hypertension. Candidates should have a BS and/or MS degree in engineering with interest in cardiovascular and pulmonary physiology and pathophysiology.
Multi-scale Mechanics of Right Ventricular Failure (RVF)
A graduate research assistant position is available to study the contributions of organ- and myocyte-level dysfunction to RVF using an existing multi-scale computational model of heart function to fill gaps in our understanding of RVF. Candidates should have a BS and/or MS degree in engineering with interest in modeling and cardiovascular and pulmonary physiology and pathophysiology.
