The Srinivasan Lab at Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) is recruiting motivated researchers to conduct NIH supported research about heart valves. Heart valves open and close approximately 40 million times a year and are critical for our wellbeing. Valve defects are observed in ~ 2.5% of all individuals, increasing to ~8% in individuals >65 years old and ~13% in those who are >75. The ageing population is rapidly increasing in the world, which in turn is expected to raise the frequency of heart valve disorders. Therefore, we urgently need better understanding of heart valve diseases to stop or slow the progression of heart valve disease. Towards this goal the Srinivasan lab uses state of the art biochemical, cell biological and transgenic technologies to dissect the roles of transcription factors and signaling molecules that regulate valve development and disease.

Please check our latest publications: Cha et al (2016) Genes Dev. (cover image) June 16; 30: 1-16; Cha et al (2018) Cell Reports. (cover image) October 16; 25(3):571-584; Mahamud et al (2019) Development. November 5;146(21):dev184218; Geng et al (2020) JCI Insight.

The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic about challenging projects and will have experience with Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or Immunology. Experience with mouse models is preferred.

Required Qualifications

Postdoctoral Fellow/Staff Scientist: Ph.D., M.D., or Ph.D./M.D.

Research Technician: Undergraduate degree and above.

Salary of postdoctoral fellows is according to the stipulation of NIH. Salary of the Staff Scientist/Research Technician will be commensurate with experience. Preference will be given to candidates with publications in respected journals.

The Srinivasan Lab at Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) is recruiting motivated researchers to conduct NIH supported research to study lymphatic vascular development and disease. Lymphatic vasculature returns interstitial fluid, immune cells and digested lipids to blood and is crucial to support the function of the circulatory, immune and digestive systems. A dysfunctional lymphatic vasculature causes interstitial fluid to accumulate in tissues, leading to chronic swelling (lymphedema). Lymphatic defects are also implicated in systemic inflammation, cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome. Yet, therapeutic approaches are not available to treat lymphatic diseases. Towards this goal the Srinivasan lab uses state of the art biochemical, cell biological and transgenic technologies to dissect the roles of transcription factors and signaling molecules that regulate lymphatic vascular development and disease.

Please check our latest publications: Cha et al (2016) Genes Dev. (cover image) June 16; 30: 1-16; Cha et al (2018) Cell Reports.

The Niwa laboratory (https://niwaorg.com/) in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurobiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is seeking creative and motivated postdoctoral fellows.

We aim to investigate how psychosocial stress affects behaviors via altered neuronal function and connectivity in brain. The ultimate goal of the laboratory’s research is to understand the biological mechanisms by which the endocrine system controls the developmental trajectory of brain and behavior. By combining mouse behavioral assays, optogenetic/chemogenetic neuronal manipulation, in vivo calcium imaging in freely-behaving mice, in vivo microdialysis, electrophysiology, neural circuit tracing, and epigenetic/gene expression analysis, we plan to unravel the underlying mechanisms from the molecular and cellular to the circuitry and behavioral levels.

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurobiology offers a strong supportive research environment in both laboratory and clinical settings. Research resources are enriched through the Neuroscience community at UAB.

The post-doctoral fellow will be encouraged to develop her/his own research within the overall goal of the laboratory: understanding of neurobiology underlying stress-related disorders. The fellow will also have an opportunity to take part in the highly interactive scientific community at the UAB.

Qualifications:

1) Candidates must have a doctoral level degree (M.D. and/or Ph.D.) in neurobiology, neuroscience, neuropsychophrmacology, biomedical engineering, system biology, molecular biology, or a related field.

2) Preferences will be given to creative and motivated candidates with experience in rodent behavioral assessments, optogenetics, electrophysiological and/or in vivo imaging methods, but highly motivated candidates with alternate experience are also encouraged to apply.

3) The ideal postdoctoral candidate will be dedicated to basic research with strong analytical and communication skills. The fellow is expected to collaborate with colleagues inside and outside the laboratory.

This person will perform behavioral assays, circuit mapping, electrophysiology, in vivo microdialysis, and in vivo calcium imaging with a miniature epifluorescence microscope in conjunction with optogenetic/chemogenetic manipulation in the neurobiology and neuroendocrinology of parenting, emotional, motivational, and social behaviors. One of our projects is currently supported by a 5-year R01 research grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to understand the role of adolescent stress in postpartum mood and cognition.

Start date: Year-round hiring, depending on individual circumstances. Single-year contract, renewable depending on achievements. We strongly encourage applicants who are willing to stay for at least two years and publish their research results in major journals.

Salary: Salary is commensurate with the NIH and UAB guidelines for Postdoctoral researchers. Coming with fellowship funding is always a plus.

Application process:
Interested individuals should contact Minae Niwa, Ph.D. (mniwa[at]uabmc.edu *Please replace [at] with @ when addressing Emails) directly and provide the following documents in sequence in one PDF:

1) Curriculum vitae.

2) A brief summary of research accomplishments including experimental skills, research interests, and career goals.

3) Contact information for at least two references.

Applications will be considered until the position is filled.

The Kim Orth Lab in the Department of Molecular Biology at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, Dallas, Tx USA has openings for new postdoctoral fellows.

Our lab focusses on two programs:
1- Molecular mechanisms involved in host/pathogen interactions with a focus on Gram-negative bacteria.
2- Using metazoan mouse and fly models to elucidate the posttranslational modification called AMPylation and its impact on the integrated stress response.
