Duties

Technical Director of an emerging Small Animal Cardiovascular Phenotyping Core that will support the cardiovascular research mission within the Penn Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) and the entire Penn Community. This Core will provide in-depth imaging and physiological assessment of small animal models (largely mice) of cardiovascular disease. We are seeking an experienced and highly-qualified individual to independently conduct and analyze cardiac structure and function by cardiac ultrasound and Doppler analyses and invasive hemodynamic studies, including Pressure-Volume loops. Studies will be conducted in animals at baseline (often genetically-engineered models) and/or following surgical induction of disease including pressure overload and myocardial infarction conducted by a small animal surgeon within the Core. Ensure proper scheduling, billing, and informative discussions with users regarding Core services. Oversee IACUC protocols. The Technical Director will report directly to the Core Faculty Advisor (currently the CVI Director). There is a great demand for these services across the University and it is anticipated that ultimately the cost of this position will be offset via the fee-for-service model.

Qualifications

The minimum of a Master’s degree and 5 to 7 years of experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience, are required. PhD or equivalent doctoral degree preferred. A highly collaborative team-oriented individual with administration experience is preferred for this position.

Affirmative Action Statement

Penn adheres to a policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected class.
