Open Positions

Post Doctoral Fellow

  • Responsibilities:
    • Study physiological functions and pathological alterations in arterial smooth muscle and perivascular adipose tissue.
      Techniques in the laboratory include RT-PCR, Western blotting, RNAseq, arterial wire myography, blood pressure telemetry, and indirect calorimetry in mouse models.
    • The position offers opportunities for new hypotheses generation and testing, and will support independent thinking.
    • Mentoring for grant writing will be provided and grant submission will be encouraged.
    • May perform other duties as assigned.

 

Post Doctoral Fellow

  • Responsibilities:
    • Will be actively involved in projects aimed at understanding the metabolic stress response to burns and in particular, the role of the mitochondrion in burn-induced hypermetabolism.
    • Opportunities to participate in ongoing studies aimed at elucidating the impact of diet and lifestyle on mitochondrial function.
    • Position will offer training in the fields of metabolic physiology, bioenergetics and nutrition, and the metabolic response to trauma.
    • Training in various stable isotope techniques to characterize energy expenditure and substrate metabolism as well as high-resolution respirometry to study bioenergetics will also be provided.

 

Post Doctoral Fellow

  • Responsibilities:
    • To study the maternal role in programming of offspring metabolism with a special emphasis on adipose tissue development.
    • Laboratory-based research of animal experiments, metabolic phenotyping, in vivo functional assays and in vitro cell culture studies, next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics and microbiome analyses.
