POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW

Job Description

Strength Through Diversity

Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.

 
Roles & Responsibilities:
  • A full-time NIH/NIDDK funded postdoctoral position is available starting in the lab of Prashant Rajbhandri, as soon as possible to explore the role of a newly identified transcription factor (TF) in the development of white and brown fat. The fellow’s project will investigate the gain-of- and loss-of-function of the TF in both cell culture and recently generated fat-specific knockout mice. The study will entail identifying target genes, binding partners and cistromic regions of the TF to further understand the mechanism of adipogenesis. This study will be pursued through the use of standard molecular biology, cell culture methods, cell and tissue chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)-qPCR, ChIP-Seq, IP-Mass Spec and directed IP (prior experience in genome-wide sequencing is preferred but not required and experience in Mass-spec is not expected).

    Interested applicants should send their resume to Gabrielle Mittleman at gabrielle.mittleman@mssm.edu, cc prashant.rajbhandari@mssm.edu

 

Requirements:
  • Candidates must have received their PhD in the past 1-2 year and have had experience in the areas of gene regulation and transcription, as a well as strong publication record with at least 1-2 first authorship in a reputed journal. The candidate must have prior experience in using molecular biology, cell culture, and animal model, preferably also with colony management. Previous experience in adipose biology and Next Gen Sequencing data processing and analysis will be a definitive advantage.
