G Proteins and Metabolic Regulation

National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

Position Description:
Postdoctoral Fellowship positions are immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Lee Weinstein within the Metabolic Diseases Branch of NIDDK. We are using a variety of G protein knockout mouse models to examine how G protein signaling in the central nervous system regulates whole animal energy and glucose metabolism, as well as the molecular mechanisms by which the Gs-alpha gene undergoes genomic imprinting (e.g. JCI 2016, 126:40; PNAS 2016, 113:446; JCI 2017, 127:500).

Experience in neuroscience techniques in mice is preferred, although not required. Candidates should have less than five years postdoctoral experience.
