An opening position for research fellows (From April-May 2021):
The National University of Singapore invites applications for 01 postdoc position with immediate effect in the Department of Biochemistry, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine. Appointments will be made on 2 years contract basis in the first instance, with the possibility of extension 1 year.
Project description: Membrane transporters regulate the transport of small compounds through cell membrane. We discovered Mfsd2b as the transporter for S1P in HSC cells (Vu et al., Nature, 2017). Our recent work also identified Mfsd7c as a putative transporter at the blood brain barrier (Kalailingam et al., JCI, May 2020; Chandrakanthan et al., Nature comminications, 2021). The current projects focus on understandings the molecular and physiological roles of these transporters in mouse models and cell culture models. We employ state of the art lipidomics (https://sling.sg/) and metabolomics to faciliate our ligand discovery.
Main duties and responsibilities: The postdoc candidate will lead the research projects in which he or she will work with the PI to identify the ligands and the physiological impacts of these membrane transporters in cells/animals physiology. The postdoc candidate will be able to:
(1) Independently lead the research projects.
(2) Design and Perform experiments, interpret the data, and write papers.
(3) Assist the PI with other duties such as training junior lab members.
(4) Strong team player skills and the ability to work harmoniously with a diverse workforce.
Qualifications: The applicant should hold a PhD from a prestigious university with strong interests and experiences in membrane transporter or lipid research field. Experiences should include the follows but not limited to:
– Strong research interests in lipid biochemistry.
– Extensive experiences in working with knockout mouse models
– Experience with gene expression in common cell lines and primary murine cells.
– Experience with basic molecular biology techniques is preferred such as molecular cloning, protein expression/purification, immunoprecipitation, Western blots.
Benefits: The lab offers a highly competitive research environment with state-of-the-art technology for career development, especially for senior research fellows to junior faculty position. Remuneration will be commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience. Monthly salary range: SGD5000-7000. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
Formal application: Please submit your application including a detailed CV (including personal particulars, academic and employment history, complete list of publications/oral presentations) and full contacts of 3 referees to:
Dr. Long Nguyen
Address: Life Sciences Institute (https://www.lsi.nus.edu.sg/corp/)
