Abstract

A postdoctoral position is available at the Obesity and Comorbidities Research Center, University of Campinas - Brazil. The scientific aim of the project is to investigate the patterning, structure and function of the median eminence of embryos and mice born from high fat diet fed mothers. The fellowship is funded by São Paulo Research Foundation. We are seeking applicants who are exceptionally motivated, innovative, and can work independently within a collaborative team setting. The desired candidate must have excellent background in the field of biological sciences. Wide experience in hypothalamic development, anatomy and histology, immunohistochemistry techniques, molecular biology and cloning are expected. The candidate must control embryonic genetic manipulation techniques such as in utero electroporation and viral transfection. The position requires excellent written and oral communication skills.Obesity and Comorbidities Research Center is a non- profit organization devoted to the research of obesity and related disorders.
