Global Surgery Fellowship Position

Loma Linda University Medical Center
Date Posted: April 7, 2017

Dear Program Director: The Loma Linda University Health Department of Surgery in Loma Linda, California is beginning a new one year non-ACGME accredited Global Surgery Fellowship (GSF) starting August 1, 2017. The goal of the Global Surgery Fellowship is to prepare Christian, American-trained general surgeons to be competent and capable of performing the needed surgeries in low and middle income countries (LMIC). The Global Surgery Fellowship furthers the Loma Linda University Health goal ‘to make man whole’ physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually by continuing Christ’s healing and teaching ministry. It aims to address the overwhelming surgical needs throughout the developing world. In 2015, the World Health Organization recognized that the lack of access to safe surgical care results in more deaths than HIV, TB, and Malaria combined and the WHO made Global Surgery a priority in public health. There are approximately five billion people around the globe who lack access to safe and affordable surgical and anesthesia care with a vast majority of those people living in the low-resource settings of low and middle income countries. It is estimated that each year 143 million additional surgical procedures need to be done in Sub-Saharan Africa alone. The LLUH GSF will directly address surgery’s indispensable part of health care in underserved areas and will positively affect the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Global Surgery Fellowship (GSF) is a one year training for American Board of Surgery eligible or certified general surgeons. It consists of nine months training at Loma Linda University Health (LLUH) in Loma Linda, California and 3 months of guidance and experience at Malamulo Adventist Hospital (MAH) in Malawi, Africa. The fellowship training at LLUH will consist of rotations and case log completion in Obstetrics, Gynecology, Urology, Orthopedics, and Trauma, as well as Anesthesia, Neurosurgery, Pediatric Surgery, ENT, Plastic Surgery, Wound Care, Dentistry, Preventative Medicine, Infections Disease, Tropical Disease, Public Health, Financial Literacy for organizations, and Leadership in Health Administration. The GSF will include a Diploma of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene as well as a membership in the Consortium of Universities for Global Health. The fellow will complete at least one research paper focusing on a topic in Global Surgery. LLUH is uniquely equipped for the GSF with its strong history of international service and its direct connection to a wide network of hospitals in low and middle income countries. This modus operandi of mission focus is evident in the multidisciplinary enthusiasm and support for the Department of Surgery’s Global Surgery Fellowship. The fellowship program director, Dr. Carlos Garberoglio, and assistant program director, Dr. Ryan Hayton, have a continued interest in meeting the global needs of surgery based on their real experience in providing surgical care in low-resource environments. Applicants must have completed an ACGME approved general surgery residency by June 30, 2017 and be American Board of Surgery certified or eligible. Thank you and God Bless, Carlos Garberoglio, MD, FACS Professor of Surgery Fellowship Timeline for 2017 Open For Applications 04/04/2017 Application Deadline 04/19/2017 Interviews of fellows 04/28/2017 Selection of Fellows 04/28/2017 Notifications to applicants 05/01/2017 Begin Fellowship for first fellow 08/01/2017

Postdoctoral Position in Atherosclerosis Research

NCIRE - The Veterans Health Research Institute
Date Posted: October 18, 2016

The Atherosclerosis Research Laboratory within NCIRE and the Department of Surgery at UCSF is offering career development opportunities for postdoctoral scientists who are passionate and skilled in the study of mammalian metabolism and immunity. Our laboratory develops and studies mouse models of spontaneous and reversible dyslipidemia to explore mechanisms through which plasma lipoprotein metabolism alters hematopoiesis and immune cell biology in the process of atherosclerosis progression and its regression. Ongoing studies investigate mechanisms through which ApoE regulates microRNA-control of hematopoeisis and myeloid cell activity to suppress inflammation and atherosclerosis. Newly funded studies will explore the influence of diabetic hyperglycemia on microRNA-controlled immune cell activation and the impact this exerts on accelerating atherosclerosis and impairing its regression in mice subjected to plasma lipid lowering. Through collaborations with members of the Extracellular RNA (exRNA) Consortium, new projects are being developed to explore the contribution of extracellular RNA carried by exosomes and lipoproteins in the control of systemic and vascular inflammation and thereby atherosclerosis. Our positions will therefore offer opportunities to collaborate with laboratories across the UCSF campuses and nation-wide, providing a rich source of scientific growth. Essential functions: • Develop and lead a project focused on exploring the link between hyperglycemia and dysregulation of microRNA-controlled hematopoiesis and inflammation in atherosclerosis acceleration in mouse models of diabetic dyslipidemia. • Explore extracellular-RNA mediated intercellular signaling in the control of atherosclerosis using in vitro models of vascular biology and mouse models of diabetic dyslipidemia. • Maintain regular contact with the Principal Investigator to advance projects independently and as part of a team in the laboratory and with collaborators. • Compose and edit manuscripts to report data derived from experimental studies. Job Requirements: • PhD degree focused on mammalian immunology or metabolism, with a total of 5-7 years of relevant lab/research experience and a record of scientific publication. • Demonstrated experience with in vitro/in vivo studies of cellular signaling including via microRNA and Redox biology in mammalian models of inflammation. • Skilled with advanced flow cytometry and cell sorting to study mature immune cells and hematopoietic progenitor and stem cells. • Skilled with the histological detection of proteins and nucleic acids in mammalian tissues. • Experience working with in vivo models of cardiovascular disease and diabetes is desirable. • Ability to work collaboratively in a team setting and assist with the training of junior staff as required • Strong oral/written communication, interpersonal and organizational skills. • Accuracy and attention to detail • Computer literacy with emphasis on Windows Excel, Abobe Photoshop, and statistical software required for data analysis and its graphical output.

Clinical Research Fellow

University of Pennsylvania - Division of Plastic Surgery
Date Posted: August 17, 2016

Date Available: July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018 Job Description: The Clinical Research Fellows’ broad responsibilities include organizing and gaining approval for the majority of the research that is produced within the division. This includes developing project ideas, grant proposals, and IRB protocols, if necessary. It also includes the prospective and retrospective management and statistical analysis of several large databases, including one of the largest and most detailed autologous breast reconstruction databases in the field. Although no formal bio-statistical or clinical research training is funded through the fellowship, the Clinical Research Fellows gain a tremendous amount of on-the-job training from residents and previous fellows who are accomplished academic researchers in plastic surgery. The fast-paced environment and abundance of practical training leaves Clinical Research Fellows with a robust knowledge of the current state of academic literature in their areas of interest within plastic surgery, as well as an ability to effectively explore this literature, develop new ideas, and gather, manage, and analyze institution and national datasets to answer novel hypotheses. At the end of the year, a Clinical Research Fellow is expected to be involved in the completion of 20+ clinical research ideas and submit them for publication, many to high-impact plastic and general surgery journals. At any one given time, a Clinical Research Fellow may be responsible for directly overseeing 5-10 projects, some of which he or she will complete during their tenure and others of which he or she will pass on to the next fellow(s). In this manner, the fellows learn to create reproducible and scientifically valid data in a collaborative environment, thereby setting the foundation for many of the skills they will need throughout their academic careers.
