Open Positions
We currently are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to join our team. Please see details below.

Postdoctoral Researcher Position:

Postdoctoral Fellowship to study the role of Clonal Hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) in Sudden Cardiac Death in the Tseng and Moslehi Laboratories at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)


The Postmortem Systematic Investigation of Sudden Cardiac Death (POST SCD) project at UCSF is led by Dr. Zian H. Tseng and has pioneered the study of contributing factors leading to precise causes of sudden death. This newly funded project is focused on defining the contributing role of clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) to sudden cardiovascular death. The postdoctoral scholar will work closely with members of the POST SCD team as well as the Moslehi laboratory at the Smith Cardiovascular Research Building and Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI) on the Mission Bay campus at UCSF. The position will be well-integrated with both the Cardiac Electrophysiology Section and the newly established Section of Cardio-Oncology and Immunology. 


Postdoctoral candidates should possess a PhD in molecular biology/genetics, MD, or both and have a strong background in molecular biology or other relevant areas of biomedical research, as well as an outstanding record of academic achievements and research productivity. Additional skills required include excellent time management, strong communication, and the ability to work well in multidisciplinary teams. Previous experience in fluorescence microscopy, next generation sequencing, and spatial transcriptomics would strengthen the application.

Interested candidates who fit this description should reach out to Dr. Zian Tseng at [email protected] and Dr. Javid Moslehi at [email protected].
