Job Opportunities

at the



The Laboratory of Biological Modeling offers recent doctoral recipients the opportunity to carry out interdiscplinary research in theoretical biology in close collaboration with experimentalists. Current foci include insulin secretion from pancreatic beta-cells, whole-body glucose homeostasis, and other topics related to diabetes and obesity. NIH postdoctoral fellowships support two or three years of intensive research without teaching or grant writing obligations. Backgrounds in mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, chemistry, and other quantitative sciences are appropriate. The principle requirement is a demonstrated talent and interest in applying mathematics to solve important problems in biology.

NIH is an equal opportunity employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Both U. S. and non-U. S. citizens are eligible. Applicants should have received a Ph. D. degree within the last five years.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Modeling of Metabolic Regulation

A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Laboratory of Biological Modeling. The successful candidate will develop computational models of metabolic regulation. Specific projects include, but are not limited to: 1. Human macronutrient metabolism and the regulation of body weight 2. Regulation of growth, body weight, and macronutrient metabolism in rodents 3. Competitive substrate oxidation in the heart

These projects will be conducted in collaboration with experimental physiologists. Applicants should possess a Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Biochemistry, Physiology, Nutrition, or a related field. The successful candidate will have strong quantitative and mathematical abilities and an interest in studying the regulation of metabolism in mammalian systems. Salary will be commensurate with experience according to NIH guidelines.
