ベイラー医科大学Children's Nutrition Research Center (CNRC)の福田ラボでは、ポスドクを募集しております。当研究室は、過食や肥満において、視床下部ニューロンネットワークがレプチンやインスリンなどの代謝シグナルに応答しなくなるメカニズムを研究しています。この視床下部ニューロンの機能不全が肥満や糖尿病の病態基盤となっている可能性があり、その分子的実態をマウス遺伝学、薬理学、脳器官培養法、ならびに各種レポーターマウスを用いたアプローチを通して明らかにしようとしています。

Postdoctoral positions are available (starting from early 2015) at the Children’s Nutrition Research Center (CNRC) at Baylor College of Medicine (Houston).
Candidates should have a PhD or MD degree in a relevant discipline. Graduates within the last 12 months are preferred. All candidates need to identify a potential mentor in the CNRC (http://www.bcm.edu/cnrc/faculty) and contact the mentor directly. Candidates and their mentors are expected to assemble an application package (see below) and submit it to CNRC by September 30 of 2014.
Application package:
1. Candidate’s curriculum vitae.
2. Transcripts of candidate’s undergraduate and graduate degree (directly from the registrar if possible).
3. Recommendation letters from candidate’s Ph.D. or M.D. mentor and two other people who know the candidate well.
4. Candidate statement, explaining why he or she would like to work with the proposed mentor, what is expected to be learnt from our program, and how it would help accomplish stated goals.
5. A short research proposal (2-5 pages) to be developed jointly by the candidate and the potential mentor. The proposal should include background materials describing the rationale for and relevance of the research, hypotheses to be tested, experimental approaches, and methods for evaluating the results.

Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral Position in Angiogenesis Research and Drug Targeting Technology

Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Masanobu Komatsu at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (formerly Burnham Institute). One research project is to investigate the regulatory mechanism of blood vessel maturation and stabilization. Our laboratory has shown that the small GTPase R-Ras promotes quiescence of vascular cells and normalizes newly forming vessels in the pathologically regenerating vasculature (Nature Medicine 2005, Cancer Cell 2012. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22897853). The goal of this study is to exploit the R-Ras pathways in order to modulate blood vessels for therapeutic advantage, for instance 1) to block metastasis and improve drug delivery in cancer, or 2) to improve blood perfusion in ischemic heart disease.

The other area of research focus is to develop novel drug delivery technologies using peptide-directed vascular targeting. We have worked primarily on targeting tumors, organ fibrosis, and pulmonary arterial hypertension for delivery of therapeutics and imaging probes (American Journal of Pathology 2010 and 2014, Biomaterials 2012). In particular, we pioneered the method to target pulmonary arterial hypertension for lung-specific delivery of therapeutics (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21549345).

Visit our website for more information on research focuses of the laboratory. http://www.sanfordburnham.org/Talent/Pages/MasanobuKomatsu.aspx
Interested applicants should submit a single PDF file containing CV, a brief description of research interests and accomplishments to Dr. Komatsu.
