    Position description

    Position Summary:
    Seeking research fellow interested in clinical and environmental cardiorespiratory physiology. Individual would be part of the Clinical and Human Performance Physiology Research Laboratory in the Cardiology Department at Mayo Clinic Arizona. The fellow would assist with research heavily focused on exercise performance and pulmonary physiology in cardiovascular disease and/or in healthy adults exposed various stimuli such as simulated high altitude. The primary role will be to carry out human physiology testing in various patient and non-patient groups for ongoing studies but also develop grant writing skills, protocols for IRB submission. Commonly used techniques in this lab include gas exchange and measurement of metabolic data, general pulmonary function testing, diffusing capacity of the lungs for carbon monoxide and nitric oxide (DLCO/DLNO), acetylene open circuit and rebreathe techniques for measurement of cardiac output (Q), exercise testing and wireless device monitoring.

    Play a lead role in the preparation and execution of data collection for various studies. Monitors results, reports unusual outcomes and suggests modifications. Perform data preparation and database development. It is expected that this individual will utilize their strong statistical background to analyze various datasets and write manuscripts and make presentations at national meetings. Additionally, this position will also assist with conducting cardiopulmonary exercise tests for patients as part of our research lab's clinical responsibilities. Works quite independently under the guidance of the Principal Investigator and assists in mentoring technicians and undergraduate and doctoral students that rotate through the lab.

    • Doctoral degree certification, if applicable:
      • Original or notarized copy of diploma or final transcript issued by school (English translation required).

    Requires doctoral degree in Exercise Science, Exercise Physiology, or other relevant sciences.

    License or Certification: ACLS and BLS Certified- required

    Additional qualifications

    Must exhibit advanced knowledge in specialized field of study: cardiovascular, respiratory, exercise and environmental physiology, altitude (hypoxia) exposure, and human performance with experience or interest in cardiovascular diseases (heart failure or pulmonary arterial hypertension), cardiovascular interventions and evaluations (e.g., cardiac catheterization, ultrasound/echocardiography). Must have the ability to organize and carry out laboratory techniques and studies independently and in a team setting. Experience with data analysis and biostatistics along with a strong publication history is required.

    Site description

    Over the next four years, Mayo Clinic is making significant investments in both the physical and technological future of health care, through doubling the size of the Mayo Clinic campus in Phoenix, inclusive of practice, education, and research activities. Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona are located in Phoenix and Scottsdale, in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. The region is known as the Valley of the Sun, a metropolitan area with more than 4 million residents in 25 cities and towns.

    With Phoenix being the sixth largest city in the nation, this sunny "desert metropolis" offers the amenities of a big city in the midst of a strikingly beautiful, rugged, southwest landscape.

    Scottsdale frequently earns praise as a highly desirable place to live. The city's more than 200,000 residents enjoy a vibrant mix of culinary hot spots, arts and entertainment, professional and collegiate sports teams, and community resources. The region's desert climate promotes an outdoor lifestyle with a full complement of sports and recreation.
