-------------Graduate Research Assistants-------------

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.

PULMONARY VASCULAR REMODELING, HEMODYNAMICS AND RIGHT VENTRICULAR FUNCTION

A graduate research assistant position is available to study the changes in vascular mechanics, hemodynamics and/or right ventricular function that occur with pulmonary hypertension in large and small animal models of this disease. Candidates should have a BS and/or MS degree in engineering with interest in cardiovascular and pulmonary physiology and pathophysiology.

UTERINE VASCULAR REMODELING IN PREGNANCY

A graduate research assistant position is available to study the changes in vascular mechanics and hemodynamics that occur with normal and diseased pregnancies. Our laboratory collaborates with the UW Perinatal Research Laboratory, which collects in vivo and ex vivo data on in animal models and human patients. Candidates should have a BS or MS degree in biological sciences or engineering with interest in cardiovascular physiology and reproductive physiology.

TRANSLATIONAL CARDIOVASCULAR SCIENCE

The University of Wisconsin Training Program in Translational Cardiovascular Science is soliciting applications from outstanding candidates for NIH predoctoral training fellowships. Dr. Chesler is a trainer in this fellowship program.
