Postdoctoral fellow/Research Associate

One full-time postdoctoral/research associate position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Kamal D. Mehta at the Ohio State University to investigate the role of diet-sensitive signaling pathways in the development of obesity and related complications such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. We have shown that protein kinase C beta is a primary driver of diet-induced obesity but the mechanism by which this occurs remains unknown. Another research goal is to further our understanding of the role of this signaling kinase in the pathophysiology of dysregulated cholesterol homeostasis, and to develop novel pathways and targets for the development of therapy. The laboratory uses state of the art techniques, including biochemistry, systemic and tissue-specific mouse models, molecular biology and gene expression analysis, to advance our current understanding of the underlying mechanisms. We have recently been funded to study the role of signaling kinases in the development of diet-induced human diseases using the tissue-specific mouse models. We are seeking a highly motivated recent PhD or with few years of postdoctoral experience. Must have experience with standard cell and molecular biology techniques. Experience with knockout or transgenic is preferred. The selected candidate will have an opportunity to lead his/her project, develop collaborations in a mentored environment and will be guided in the preparation of manuscripts, and grant submissions. He/She will be encouraged to present findings at the National/international meetings. It is expected that the individual will be involved in high-impact publications and eager for career development. The Ohio State University College of Medicine provides an excellent environment for genetic mouse models, with excellent core facilities. Interested candidates should contact Dr. Kamal D. Mehta, Department of Biological Chemistry & Pharmacology, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and apply by e-mail with current resume or CV detailing research interests and research goals to Mehta.80@osu.edu or Kamal.Mehta@osumc.edu.
