NIH funded postdoc positions are available at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF)

Scholarship: NIH funded
Degree: Ph.D. 
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines: Fall 2022

Scholarship Description:

Our lab focuses on the interface between endothelial cell metabolism and vascular biology. And we have an excellent track record in this field (Circulation Research, 2010; Circulation, 2012; Nature, 2017; J. Biol. Chem., 2021). The successful candidates will work on research projects that study the crosstalk between metabolic programs and angiogenic signaling and the involvement of cellular metabolism in the pathogenesis of vascular diseases. Multidisciplinary strategies will be used, ranging from novel genetically modified mouse models to cutting-edge systems biology tools including metabolomics and single-cell transcriptome analysis.

OMRF is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institute. The innovative basic and translational research at OMRF covers several critical areas such as cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, and cancer. OMRF has made The Scientist magazine’s annual list of the “Best Places to Work for Postdocs” for many years. The institute offers postdoctoral fellows an exceptional research and training environment with state-of-the-art facilities and outstanding core technology laboratories including imaging, next-generation sequencing, and clinical genomics. Moreover, postdoctoral scientists are encouraged to apply for OMRF Postdoc Travel Awards to support their attendance at meetings or workshops.

 Available Subjects:

Cell biology, biochemistry, developmental biology, or mouse genetics with scientific publications

Eligibility criteria:

Applicants should have a Ph.D. (or expect to receive a doctoral degree soon), possess excellent experimental and communication skills, and demonstrate solid training in cell biology, biochemistry, developmental biology, or mouse genetics with scientific publications. Previous research experience in metabolism is a plus but is not required. In addition to competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits, the successful candidates will also be provided with strong support for developing an independent research career after postdoctoral training. 

Application Procedure:

Please send (1) a cover letter describing your previous training, research accomplishments, and future research interests, (2) your curriculum vitae, and (3) contact information of three references to Dr. Pengchun Yu at [email protected].
