Deep Protein/Lipid Phenotyping of Reverse Cholesterol Transport in Humans
A postdoctoral training position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Anand Rohatgi [https://profiles.utsouthwestern.edu/profile/77134/anand-rohatgi.html], in the Department of Internal Medicine/Division of Cardiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center to study high-density lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism and reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) in humans. Our laboratory [https://www.utsouthwestern.edu/labs/rohatgi/] has several exciting projects related to proteomic, lipidomic, and genomic characterization of RCT in humans with an emphasis of deep lipid phenotyping by FPLC.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Experience in cell culture, protein assays, and lipid biochemistry leading to publication in peer-reviewed journals is recommended. Specific skills include:
- Strong background in biochemistry and molecular biology techniques, including ELISA, immunoprecipitation, Western blot analyses and protein purification.
- Prior experience with cell culture and cell-based assays is preferred.
This lab and our collaborators are committed to the professional development of the members, making this position a valuable preparation for those interested in academic, industrial or entrepreneurial careers. The position has no mandatory teaching or administrative duties. Initial appointment is for 24 months with the possibility of renewal.
