Postdoctoral Fellow Positions in Harvard Medical School For

Obesity-Related Neuroscience Research

Two postdoctoral positions are available in the Ozcan Laboratory (www.ozcanlab.com) in the Division of Endocrinology, Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School.

The positions are offered to study the role of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress signaling in hypothalamic control of metabolic homeostasis, neuron activity and leptin resistance in obesity. The interested candidates can check our recent publications in this area to understand the area of research better:

  1. Ozcan L, et al. Cell Metabolism. 2009 Jan 7;9(1):35-51. Endoplasmic reticulum stress plays a central role in development of leptin resistance.
  2. Liu J et al., Cell. 2015 May 21;161(5):999-1011. Treatment of obesity with celastrol.
  3. Lee J et al., Nature Medicine. 2016 Sep;22(9):1023-32. Withaferin A is a leptin sensitizer with strong antidiabetic properties in mice.

The ideal candidates for both positions should have a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees with experience in neuroscience, stereotaxic surgeries and molecular biology evident by peer-reviewed publications in reputable journals. Competitive salaries and excellent work benefits will be provided to  chosen candidates.
