The successful candidate should have expertise in using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess skeletal muscle oxygen transport in human subjects. The candidate must have a PhD or MD degree at the time of appointment.

The successful applicant will be expected to participate in all aspects of the research project, including experimental design, data collection, data analysis, and preparation of manuscripts. Ample opportunity exists for collaboration with other investigators in the Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute engaging in pre-clinical and clinical cardiovascular research. Highly motivated candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names of at least 3 references.
