Postdoctoral Position in Mitochondria Biology and Drosophila genetics, FCG Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation

Posted 7/6/2017

A postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Wan Hee Yoon, in Functional & Chemical Genomics Research Program. We are looking for a highly motivated scientist to discover molecular and cellular mechanisms how mitochondrial dysfunctions cause human neurological diseases. We are in a Drosophila genetics lab that actively utilizes state-of-the-art of genetic technologies, metabolomics, biochemistry, advanced imaging (confocal & EM), molecular biology, as well as human patient cells.

Successful candidates must hold a doctoral-level degree with a solid background in genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry, or a related field and a demonstrated track record (1st author publications) of productive research are required. Experience with Drosophila genetics, biochemical assays for mitochondrial metabolism, cell culture, fluorescent microscopy, and metabolomics is desirable. Must have excellent communication and organizational skills, and be able to work collaboratively.

To inquire please write to with the subject line: Yoon lab/Postdoctoral position. Please include an updated CV, 1-2 relevant publications, a brief statement of research interests and goals, and contact information of three references. For more information about this position please visit:
