Epidemiology and Community Health

National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

Position Description:

A postdoctoral position is available in the Epidemiology and Community Health Branch at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health.
Heart failure is the number one cause of hospital admission in the U.S. and carries with significant associated morbidity and mortality, which is particularly severe among Black persons.  Despite recent advances, there is an urgent need to improve our understanding of the mechanisms of heart failure to improve the prevention and treatment of this serious and frequent condition. To address this clinical problem, the Laboratory of Heart Disease Phenomics is examining the role of novel proteomics markers in characterizing the presentation and outcomes of heart failure among diverse populations. By defining new mechanisms that impact heart failure pathobiology, our laboratory will impact novel treatment approaches to be advanced to clinical trials so that we can begin to assess their safety and effectiveness.


Applicants should have a PhD. and /or M.D. degree (or anticipate receiving their degree in the near future). Salary and compensation will be commensurate with experience and accomplishments.
