We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow to join the multidisciplinary Stout Laboratory within the Aging & Metabolism (A&M) Research Program at OMRF. The fellow will investigate how sex hormones and their receptors modulate hypothalamic neurocircuitry and the sex-specific regulation of systemic metabolism during the aging process. The successful candidate will employ a wide range of techniques including stereotaxic injection of AAVs into the brain, chemo genetic approaches (DREADD), brain imaging, single-cell transcriptomics, in vivo metabolic assessments, and a variety of cellular & molecular biology techniques. The candidate will present their data regularly in laboratory meetings, local seminars and symposiums, and will have opportunities to present their work at national conferences. A requirement of the position is that the candidate must demonstrate ethical behavior at all times, a high level of scientific rigor, and must be detail oriented and able to work independently and as part of a team.

The Stout Laboratory and A&M Research Program welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds that thrive in a highly collaborative and supportive environment. We are strongly committed to providing individualized mentoring and assistance with career advancement through the implementation of a postdoctoral mentoring committee. The A&M Research Program, which currently consists of 13 highly collaborative investigators, provides an exceptional training environment in aging biology (Geroscience). The A&M Research Program also has a strong collaborative history with faculty from the Oklahoma Center for Geroscience and Health Brain Aging at OUHSC which has resulted in a Geroscience Training Grant (T32 AG052363) that supports graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at OMRF and OUHSC. The collaborative program also houses the Oklahoma Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in Basic Biology of Aging (P30 AG050911), which provides pilot funding for junior investigators. OMRF also offers an annual grant writing course (F-troop) for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows that plan to prepare grant applications (F- or K-awards) for the NIH. The OMRF Postdoctoral Association offers additional training opportunities related to grant writing, presentation skills, and career development. The vibrant and highly collaborative environment within OMRF has resulted in the foundation being named the top large employer in the state of Oklahoma three times in the last five years.

Minimum Qualifications

The Ideal Candidate will have:

  • A PhD in neuroscience or related discipline
  • Prior experience with stereotaxic injection into the brain and chemogenetic approaches
  • At minimum, a basic knowledge of rodent handling, rodent surgical skills, and statistical procedures
  • Computer skills and prior experience with data analysis
  • Prior experience writing manuscripts and be able to communicate effectively both orally and in writing
  • Prior experience, or a willingness, to mentor graduate students and/or laboratory technicians

Postdoctoral Scientist: Genetic and Epigenetic Mechanisms of Transgenerational Inheritance

Marine Biological Laboratory | Woods Hole, MA 

A postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Kristin Gribble at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA. The Gribble lab studies the mechanisms and evolution of the biology of aging, and maternal and transgenerational effects on offspring phenotype. We use rotifers as a model system for our work. For more information about our lab’s work, see

Qualified applicants will have the opportunity to study the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of maternal age effects in a novel experimental model system, focusing on how a mother’s age and physiology influence her offspring’s health and lifespan. This NSF-CAREER funded research project will use genetic, genomic, biochemical, and bioinformatic approaches to elucidate the epigenetic and genetic mechanisms of transgenerational inheritance.

Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, bioinformatics, or a related field. Individuals with experience in bioinformatic analysis of gene expression (RNA-Seq), epigenetic regulation (ATAC-Seq, CUT&RUN, Chip-Seq, histone modifications), and/or comparative genomics are particularly encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will have a record of scientific rigor, productivity, and creativity; the ability to work independently and as part of a team; and a strong publication record.  Excellent oral and written communication skills are required.  Prior experience with working with rotifers is not necessary; candidates with experience with other experimental systems are encouraged to apply.

To apply, please submit:

  • a cover letter with a brief description of your research experience and how your expertise will contribute to research on the mechanisms of parental effects and transgenerational inheritance
  • a CV including a list of publications
  • contact information for three references
