We are seeking TWO self-motivated postdoctoral researchers to join the laboratory of Dr. Feng Xu at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB), A-STAR, Singapore (https://www.a-star.edu.sg/imcb/Science/Investigators/Pls/Pls-Profile/ResearchListID/104 ).The research in our laboratory focuses on the epigenetic regulation of energy balance. This topic includes the study of microRNAs, post-translational modifications on histones and non-histone metabolic regulators in the maintenance of metabolic homeostasis. Our lab utilizes both advanced genomic tools as well as classic biochemistry and molecular biology techniques to tackle the scientific questions of interest. In addition, we are also interested in developing novel therapeutic approaches to treat metabolic disorders such as obesity and diabetes. The model systems used in our study include white, brown and beige fat cells. We also use various mouse models to investigate the in vivo metabolic phenotypes.
A-STAR institutes offer highly competitive salaries.
