We are currently recruiting keen graduate students to join our group. The primary interest of graduate students within the group is related to exercise, nutrition, and substrate metabolism, and studying their integration in humans.   Training opportunities include stable isotope methods (primed constant infusion and heavy water approaches) and various molecular techniques.

If you are interested in joining our group, please feel free to contact Dr. Burd with your CV or resume with a brief note of research interests.
