A new NIH/NCI fund postdoctoral position is available in the Fu laboratory in the Department of Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine to study the pathophysiological mechanism and therapeutic targets of obesity-related cancer. The laboratory is located at the main campus of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and offers competitive research projects with a special focus on the role of chronic circadian dysfunction in obesity, metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and NAFLD-associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The successful candidate will join our exciting research projects to study the mechanism, biomarkers, and gene targets of obesity-related HCC using state-of-the-art technologies, including RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing, proteomics, metabolomics, and humanized mouse models (https://www.bcm.edu/people-search/loning-fu-21668). These studies are not only theoretically important but also have significant near-term translational values.
The stipend for these positions will follow the NIH 2020 post-doctoral fellow salary guidelines, which is currently $52,704 plus fringe for a Ph.D graduate with no previous post-doc experience and increases with increasing years in post-doc experience.
