2. A postdoctoral fellow position is available to start immediately in the laboratory of Yuji Ikeno, M.D., Ph.D. at the Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies at the Texas Research Park Campus of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas.
Dr. Ikeno's laboratory is studying the effects of oxidative stress on aging and age-related pathology, using unique animal models that overexpress or downregulate antioxidant enzymes, including thioredoxin and Cu/Zn SOD. Research projects include: (1) redox sensitive signaling with mice that overexpress thioredoxin 1 or 2; and (2) obesity/inflammation/oxidative damage/insulin signaling with Cu/ZnSOD transgenic rats or mice fed a high-fat diet; (3) anti-tumor actions of caloric restriction.
Experience in standard techniques of molecular and cellular biology is required. A strong research background in the area of oxidative stress and signaling is appreciated.
Please use the link provided to contact Dr. Ikeno for more information.
