POSTDOCTORAL SCHOLAR – Transcriptional and Epigenetic control of metabolism – Dr. Sona Kang Lab at the Department of Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology, UC Berkeley

A post-doctoral position is available in the lab of Sona Kang at the Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology at UC Berkeley (https://nst.berkeley.edu/users/sona-kang). Our research program focuses on the transcriptional and epigenetic basis of metabolic dysregulations, in particular, obesity and type 2 diabetes. We seek to identify the core epigenetic transcriptional mechanisms underlying these disease conditions, validating physiological significance, and to develop therapeutic interventions. We apply multiple traditional wet lab techniques and global profiling approaches in vitro and in vivo.

We are looking for self-motivated, detail-oriented, and collaborative applicant who can efficiently work in a fast-paced environment. High level of independence and the ability to think critically are expected. PhD candidates with soon expected graduation are highly encouraged to apply.

Applicants should have an expertise in one of the following areas: molecular and cell biology, metabolic phenotyping of mouse models, and global profiling studies. The successful candidate will lead project(s) requiring technical expertise such as metabolic characterization of mouse models, cell culture studies, and/or biochemical studies.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

Preferred candidate are who has expertise in one of following areas; 1) characterizing metabolic phenotypes in mouse models, 2) performing genome-wide profiling studies such as ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq, or 3) performing CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing studies.

TO APPLY

Interested applicants should directly e-mail Dr. Sona Kang at sonakanglab@gmail.com a single PDF file that includes cover letter and CV and names/contact information of at least three individuals for references.

Appointment

The initial appointment is for 12 months, with renewal based on performance and funding. This is a full-time appointment.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience and based on UC Berkeley Postdoc salary scale. The annual salary range for this position is $43,692 to $51,120. Generous benefits are included (http://vspa.berkeley.edu/postdocs).
