Post-doctoral Fellow – Proteomics
Aging & Metabolism – Miller
Job Summary/Basic Function
The Translational Biogerontolgy Laboratory of Dr. Benjamin Miller in the Aging and Metabolism Research Program at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) is looking for a post-doctoral researcher. We are looking with someone with an interest in proteomics and some combination of aging, muscle, mitochondria, metabolism, and stable isotopes. In addition to joining the lab of Dr. Miller, the post-doc will be in a highly collaborative environment that spans the Aging and Metabolism Research Program at OMRF and the Reynolds Oklahoma Center on Aging (ROCA) at OUHSC. Aging research (Geroscience) is the thematic priority of these two programs and the associated Oklahoma Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging. The post-doc would also be eligible for the Geroscience Training Program (T32) and a wealth of other training opportunities including those in the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center.
