Brief description: Postdoctoral Positions in the Touchstone Diabetes Center at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. The Scherer group in the Touchstone Diabetes Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas is seeking post-doctoral fellows interested in studying adipose tissue physiology, and the cross-talk of adipose tissue with other relevant players in systemic #metabolism, including the liver, kidney and pancreatic a and b cells. We study these questions in the context of #diabetes, #obesity, #cardiovascular disease and obesity-associated #cancers. Our main tool is mouse genetics, with which we generate inducible gain-and-loss of alleles of genes of interest. We use a broad array of phenotyping procedures for these mouse models, including #metabolomic, #proteomic and #gene expression analysis combined with a broad spectrum of metabolic assays in vivo and in vitro. We complement our findings with tissue culture data and with clinical samples.
