A postdoctoral position is available at Baylor College of Medicine (Houston) to study the CNS control of body weight, glucose homeostasis and blood pressure using Cre-loxP mouse models (please see http://www.bcm.edu/cnrc/faculty/index.cfm?pmid=19130 for details). Candidates need to have a doctoral degree in biology, neuroscience, physiology, or other related disciplines. Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and 2-3 references to: Dr. Yong Xu, Children’s Nutrition Research Center, Baylor College of Medicine. Email: email@example.com.
Baylor College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Equal Access Employer.
