Postdoctoral Felow positions are open in the Division of Endocrinology and the Division of Developmental Biology of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in the laboratory of Dr. Sanchez-Gurmaches.
The goal of Dr. Sanchez-Gurmaches lab is to understand the mechanisms that drive the normal and pathological formation and function of distinct types of adipocytes with the long-term goal of finding new therapeutic approaches to prevent or treat obesity and type 2 diabetes. For this we are using a wide variety of mouse genetic models to study adipocyte stem cells in different fat depots, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) models, human clinical fat samples, single cell-omic tools, CRISPR screenings, omics approaches and functional in vivo and in vitro studies among others, following our recent findings (Cell Metabolism 2012, Nature Comm 2014, Stem Cell Reports 2015, Cell Metabolism 2018, Molecular Metabolism 2019).
We are seeking applicants, with a recent Ph.D. or equivalent, who have peer review publications, high capacity for independent thinking, collaborative work, and problem solving and show motivation and implication for the area of research. Candidates with strong experience in mouse study as in vivo model, cell culture techniques, molecular biology, biochemistry, metabolism, immunology and/or, microscopy are encouraged to apply. Interested applicants, please send your CV and a statement of research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
