Postdoctoral Positions

Laboratory of Qinghua Liu

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Qinghua Liu, Ph.D., in the Department of Biochemistry, UT Southwestern Medical Center, USA. Candidates must have a Ph.D. with a strong background in the field of mouse genetics, neuroscience, or biochemistry. The primary focus of research is understanding the molecular mechanisms of sleep and fear — two important "black boxes" of modern neuroscience —by combining mouse forward genetic screening, neuroscience, classical biochemistry, and cutting-edge mass spectrometry.

Transcriptional Mechanisms in Reproductive Biology (370)

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Carole Mendelson, Ph.D, in the Department of Biochemistry to perform studies in female reproductive biology with emphasis on the transcriptional mechanisms involved in the maintenance of pregnancy and the initiation of labor and in placental biology. The regulatory roles of nuclear receptors, coregulators and chromatin modifications and their modulation by hormones and microRNAs will be emphasized. The research involves isolation and characterization of transcription factors, analysis of DNA-protein interactions and epigenetic modifications, primary cell culture, and characterization of mouse models. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Experience in molecular biology and biochemistry is preferred.

Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of three references to:
