The Postdoc Associate will use a multi-disciplinary approach, including mouse models, epigenomics, neuroscience, metabolomics, and bioinformatics to understand environment-gene interactions and circadian rhythm in metabolic diseases, cancer, autism, and Alzheimer's disease. The postdoc fellow will develop independent projects.Job Duties
- Prepares samples and perform validation studies for omics analysis using genetic modified mouse models.
- Performs functional analysis to identify metabolic reprogramming in diabetes, fatty liver, and heart failure.
- Performs molecular biology experiments such as ChIP-seq, Hi-C, or snATAC-seq to characterize epigenomic remodeling.
- Writes manuscript to report the findings.
- Documents experiments to ensure that work can be replicated by others.
- MD or Ph.D. in Basic Science, Health Science, or a related field.
- Experience in metabolism, cancer biology, epigenetics, and bioinformatics.
