Several postdoctoral positions are available in the Ozcan laboratory in the Division of Endocrinology, Children’s Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School.
Positions are offered to study
1) the role of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and unfolded protein response (UPR) signaling in hypothalamic control of metabolic homeostasis and leptin resistance in obesity. The ideal candidates should have a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees with a strong background in neuroscience evident by peer-reviewed publications in reputable journals for this position.
2) the crosstalk between UPR signaling and insulin action.
3) the molecular biology of ER stress and UPR signaling.
The ideal candidates (for positions 2 and 3) should have a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees with a strong background in molecular biology and genetics evident by peer-reviewed publications in reputable journals.
Interested candidates should forward their research interests, curriculum vitae along with the name and contact information of three referees to Dr. Umut Ozcan; e-mail: email@example.com.
