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.
