Postdoctoral Fellowships

Respiratory Neurobiology Postdoctoral Fellowship
Baylor College of Medicine


An immediate opening for an NIH post-doctoral fellowship (R01HL130249) to study brainstem respiratory circuits is available in the Ray lab at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. The current focus in the laboratory is mapping the organization of the central noradrenergic system in regulating cardio-respiratory function and its role in pathophysiologies ranging from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and Rett Syndrome to Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy. 

Our Laboratory takes a multidisciplinary approach using a variety of genetic, molecular, and viral techniques to target highly specific brainstem cell types for functional, molecular and anatomical study in mouse wild type and disease models. 

We are seeking candidates with demonstrable expertise in adult and neonate mouse respiratory studies or similar work.

Additionally, our laboratory is active in the development of new tools for improved access and study of neural circuits and thus offers several training opportunities in mouse genetic model generation (including CRISPR/Cas9 techniques), development of novel viral vectors, as well as protein engineering and purification for in vivo applications.

Baylor College of Medicine offers an outstanding research environment at the Texas Medical Center with more than 50 non-profit institutions that offers one of the highest densities of clinical, translational, and basic science research facilities in the world. BCM and the Ray lab are equal opportunity employers committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community and encourage applications from women and minorities.
