The Xu lab at The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota is currently seeking two postdoctoral fellows who are highly organized and deeply motivated. Our research focuses on the role of transcriptome stability in metabolic homeostasis. We have built a comprehensive research platform centering on metabolic physiology study, complemented by bioinformatic analysis and RNA molecular biology. The individual will be expected to establish the exact molecular mechanisms governing adipocyte metabolism, thereby facilitating the development of new therapies for obesity-related diseases.
