Joint Assistant Professor Position,
Center for Vascular Biology/Calhoun Cardiology Center
The Center for Vascular Biology ( ) and the Calhoun Cardiology Center ( are conducting a national search for a tenure-track, joint faculty position in basic science research (search code 2016-564). We seek candidates with a strong record in vascular biology research with particular emphasis on integrative or translational research and animal models of vascular or cardiovascular disease. Areas of research include but are not limited to:  metabolic and diabetic complications of vascular disease; effects of immune cell and inflammatory contributions to vascular disease and cardiovascular stem cell/progenitor cell biology in heart and vascular repair.  Questions regarding this search should be addressed to

Senior Faculty Position, Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling
The Berlin Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling ( is a multidisciplinary research center focused on development of new photonic, microscopic, and computational approaches for the study of cellular systems. We invite applications at the Associate or Full Professor (search code 2012-1038) level for an established funded investigator whose research program elucidates processes that control cell function. A research program that integrates laboratory experiments with computational modeling would be especially appropriate. The successful candidate will be expected to assume a leadership role in the continued growth of CCAM. Questions regarding this search should be addressed to


Postdoctoral Position

Cellular Imaging and Optogenetics

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling (CCAM) at the UConn Health in Farmington, CT.  The research goals include:

  1. 1. Developing novel biosensor reagents to visualize signaling dynamics in living cells
  2. 2. Developing optogenetic tools to exert precise spatiotemporal control in cellular signaling. 

In general, we are seeking candidates who have strong background in live cell imaging or protein engineering.  However, any motivated candidates who can bring in to the lab their prior excellent research experiences and are interested in to apply our existing tools in cell biology and neuroscience are encouraged to apply.  The fellow will also have an opportunity to work with a team of multidisciplinary investigators in the CCAM who share a broad interest in computational modeling and fluorescence imaging.  To be considered, a candidate should submit his/her CV and a brief statement of research interests and career goals, and have three references sent to Dr. Yi Wu, .



The University of Connecticut School of Medicine has a highly interactive research environment with interdisciplinary graduate and medical science training programs. The environment is enhanced by generous support from the State’s BioScience Connecticut initiative and by the newly established Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine on our campus.


ALL APPLICATIONS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED VIA THE UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT HEALTH CENTER EMPLOYMENT SERVICES WEBSITE, Applications should include a coverletter, curriculum vitae, research plan, statement of teaching interests, and names and addresses of at least 3 references.
