    Come join our team!


    This Research Associate 1 – Bench will be working with Dr. Vishal Nigam, a physician scientist who cares for children born with cardiac defects.  Dr. Nigam is specifically looking to mentor an independent self-starter who can work in autonomous settings but also collaborate when needed. You will be working on projects seeking to improve the care for children born with severe cardiac defects. You will check on mice, help place orders and complete a series of experiments as determined several weeks in advance. If you have interest in being published, it is highly likely that by the end of your time with Dr. Nigam you will be a co-author on some of his research.


    If you’d like to be part of research that helps discover why kids are born with heart defects and those outcomes, then this might be the role for you.
