Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge Louisiana invites applicants for postdoctoral fellowships on their NIH Institutional Training Grant entitled Obesity: From Genes to Man. Fellowships will train Ph.D. postdoctoral fellows to become productive research scientists capable of establishing scientific careers that further the efforts of the NIH to understand the complex interactions between genetic, molecular, physiological and behavioral aspects of obesity. Only applicants who are US citizens or have resident alien status will be considered Fellowships will provide funding support for up to three years. At this time, we are particularly interested in a postdoctoral researcher with a basic science focus; someone with a keen interest in researching fundamental biological questions relevant to molecular, genetic, metabolic, and cellular aspects of obesity. Evidence of motivation and skills in scientific writing such as publications and grant experience are highly desirable.
