Center for Biological Clocks Research (CBCR)
Texas A&M University
Multiple funded post-doctoral positions are available in the CBCR. We seek outstanding postdoctoral candidates to work on the following projects in CBCR faculty labs:
Dr. Deb Bell-Pedersen: Determine how the circadian clock controls mRNA translation and translation accuracy in fungi and to use this information to develop treatments to improve translation accuracy during aging.
Dr. Paul Hardin: Determine how phosphorylation-dependent conformational changes in circadian activator and repressor proteins drive interactions that control rhythmic transcription.
Dr. Jeff Jones: Defining the genes, neurons, and circuits that regulate differently-timed circadian rhythms in behavior and physiology in mammals.
Dr. Wanhe Li: Investigating the genetic, molecular, and neural mechanisms underlying chronic social isolation-induced sleep loss and exploring the reciprocal relationship between chronic stress and the progression of chronic diseases, such as cancer.
Dr. Christine Merlin: Characterize the role of the photoperiodic and circadian clock regulated vitamin A in seasonal rhythms in monarch butterflies.
Dr. Jerome Menet: Determine how circadian transcription factors regulate the chromatin environment, nucleosome positioning, and enhancer activity across the 24-hour day.
Dr. Shogo Sato: Determine how the circadian system programs metabolic and epigenetic functions and apply this information to the translational and practical levels.
