A postdoctoral research fellowship is available at the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine (IEEM) to study dyspnea on exertion, exercise respiratory mechanics, and exercise capacity in adults with and without obesity, as well as in patients with heart failure and a preserved ejection fraction under the mentorship of Tony G. Babb, Ph.D. Please submit a cover letter describing research interests and experience, curriculum vitae, and copies of recent research publications along with the name, address, and phone number of three references.
Direct all correspondence and inquiries to:
Tony G. Babb, Ph.D., Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine
7232 Greenville Avenue, Suite 435, Dallas, Texas 75231
Applicants should have a doctorate in exercise science, respiratory physiology, or a closely related discipline.
Successful applicants should be a highly motivated researcher with a strong background in human systems/integrative physiology, a strong publication record, and excellent communication and laboratory skills.
The Fellow will be expected to participate in experimental design; data collection, data analysis and interpretation; and preparation of oral and written scientific reports.
The documented ability to conduct research studies in cardiorespiratory and exercise physiology is highly desirable.
