The Integrative Biology Unit (IBU) of the recently launched Institute for Obesity Research at Tecnológico de Monterrey seeks professionals to conduct research in an interdisciplinary environment. The Institute comprises five central units: healthy foods, experimental medicine, bioprocesses & clinical devices, public policies, and integrative biology (IBU). The research at the IBU covers the functional metabolic and genomics aspects of obesity and metabolic diseases.
Dr. Víctor Treviño is looking for postdoctoral fellows with solid molecular/cell biology training (human cell cultures and CRISPR/Cas9 technologies); experience or knowledge about clinical protocols and genomics is also desirable. The successful candidate will generate CRISPR/Cas9 cell lines regarding obesity and diabetes genes for genomic and metabolomic characterization studies. In addition, she/he will help to develop a clinical study for genomic and metabolomic characterization of diabetic patients. In addition, the postdoctoral fellow will facilitate and contribute to grant proposals design and writing and graduate student formation and work in a multidisciplinary environment in bioinformatics, genomics, and metabolomics
