We are seeking a postdoctoral scientist to work on a project funded by BHF
which is available from January 2016 for a fixed-term of up to 2 years.



The focus of the position is to determine the functional and mechanistic role
of the p21-activated kinase 1 (Pak1) in cardiac atria health and disease. The
timeliness of our research has been emphasised by our recent discovery of the
association of Pak1 with some of the most important heart disease conditions
including heart hypertrophy and ischemia and arrhythmias.
