The campus is also located in a prime position close to other universities, research institutes, and biotech industries present in Southern California.
Riverside is a wonderful place to live, providing ample cultural and entertainment opportunities in a safe and comfortable community with affordable housing and living expenses. Riverside is about an hour away from ski slopes, surfing, or hiking in mountain. The city offers all the cultural advantages of any U.S. city, together with the amazing all-year-round weather of sunny Southern California.

Preference will be given to candidates with research experience in studying cardiovascular disease and lipid homeostasis. Ability to work both independently and cooperatively within a team is essential. Applicants should send a CV, a brief research statement, and the names/contact information of three references to Dr. Zhou via email: changcheng.zhou@ucr.edu
