The laboratory of Dr. Aldons (Jake) Lusis, University of California, Los Angeles, has an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist interested in studying the genetics of cardio-metabolic disorders such as atherosclerosis, obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Aspects of particular interest include mitochondrial function, gut microbiome, and statistical modeling. The work involves human studies as well as studies with mouse animal models. A doctorate (Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D.) in an area related to the field of research specialization is necessary.
