USA: Research Position in Studies of Energy Homeostasis in Mouse Models at National Institutes of Health.

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Description: The trainee will be involved in a research on the mechanisms underlying energy homeostasis. Our focus is in studying genetically manipulated mice as models of obesity and diabetes, with particular interest in BRS-3 (bombesin receptor subtype-3) and melanocortin receptors. We are interested in the role of brown adipose tissue and in understanding the differences in physiology between mice and humans, in order to better use mice as a model for human obesity and its treatment. It is desired that knowledge obtained from mouse experimentation will generate hypotheses to be followed up in the clinical setting, and similarly, that clinical observations will spur investigations using mouse models.

The position will be under the supervision of Marc Reitman, MD PhD, Chief of the Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Obesity Branch, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), in the Intramural Research Program of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.

To Apply:

Applications should be submitted to Marvin C Gershengorn by email at marving(at)intra.niddk.nih.gov and include a current curriculum vitae and bibliography and the names, titles and email addresses of three senior scientists who would submit letters of reference.

Application Deadline: no deadline
