Description

Postdoctoral fellowship opportunity

Medical Chronobiology Program, Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders

Departments of Medicine and Neurology, Brigham and Women's Hospital

 

Description

A postdoctoral fellow is sought for a project to test the effects of physical activity, the timing of physical activity, and physical fitness in the weight loss success after bariatric surgery. The successful applicant will be expected to complete this project and develop new research initiatives.

The selected candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Frank A.J.L. Scheer, at the Medical Chronobiology Program (MCP), at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The MCP was established in 2005 to investigate the impact of the circadian system and its interaction with behavioral cycles, such as the sleep/wake and fasting/eating cycle, on cardiometabolic function and disease. The MCP studies both the underlying mechanisms as well as the development of countermeasures and treatments, primarily in human studies. More information about the MCP can be found at: https://sleep.med.harvard.edu/research/labs/54.

 

Expected background of candidates

We seek a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow (MD or PhD) who has a strong background in exercise physiology and demonstrated interest in biological rhythm research, with at least two years of experience in these fields and multiple first-author publications on fitness testing and physical activity analysis. Expected start date: September 1, 2020, or soon thereafter. A commitment of 1.5 years or more is required.

 

How to apply

To apply for a position, the following documents should be sent by email to Dr. Frank A.J.L. Scheer ([email protected]) by June 1st:
