National University of Singapore Neurobiology Programme

Research Fellow: Molecular Endocrinology
Work at Carlos Ibanez laboratory focuses on understanding the functions and signaling mechanisms of growth factors and their receptors in nervous system function and metabolic regulation, for the development of better therapies to neurodegenerative and metabolic disorders. Carlos Ibanez is Professor at the Department of Physiology, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore. Information about Carlos Ibanez research can be found at www.carlosibanezlab.se/NUS.
Postdoctoral fellows are currently being recruited to advance research on growth factor receptor signaling and function in metabolic regulation of fat deposition, adipose tissue function, CNS regulation of metabolism, and obesity. In our latest paper, we reported that the sensitivity of fat cells to signals that increase the breakdown of fat is linked to the TGFbeta superfamily receptor ALK7. This discovery, published recently in eLife (http://elifesciences.org/content/3/e03245), suggests that ALK7 is a promising new target for strategies to treat human obesity.
We are seeking talented, innovative and enthusiastic researchers with a PhD awarded within the last 5 years to extend this and related research and advance novel therapeutic opportunities. We will only consider candidates with documented expertise in molecular and cellular endocrinology, metabolic research and mouse genetics, and/or hands-on experience on TGFbeta signaling. Candidates lacking expertise in any of those two areas will not be considered.
The laboratory is well-funded and is located in one of the most vibrant research environments in South East Asia, offering many exciting opportunities for career development.
Applications, including CV, list of publications and statement of future interests should be sent to Prof. Carlos Ibanez (phscfi@nus.edu.sg). Applicants should arrange to have at least two confidential letters of reference sent independently by referees to this email address.
Funding is available for an initial period of 2 to 3 years, starting any time during 2015.
Deadline is December 12, 2014.

An NIH funded postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Zhao at the Hospital for Special Surgery, Weill Medical College of Cornell University in the New York City.
Ongoing studies include identification of novel players and regulatory mechanisms of osteoclastogenesis and bone metabolisms in the physiological and pathological settings in osteoimmunology field, an exciting interdisciplinary research field linking bone biology and immune system. We apply cutting edge cellular and molecular techniques including RNAseq and ChIPseq and use various mouse models to accomplish the study. Relevant publications: Nature Medicine, 15 (9):1066-71, 2009; Journal of Experimental Medicine, 209(2):319-34, 2012; Journal of Clinical Investigation, 124 (11):5057-73, 2014.
Qualified candidate must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. in bone biology, molecular biology or a related field and have a record of peer reviewed publications. The ideal candidate will have expertise in bone biology, histology, molecular cloning, chromatin/protein immunoprecipitation, and manipulating genetic mutant mice and in vivo models. Familiarity with microarray or sequence analysis is preferred. High level of motivation and independence and the ability to think critically are expected. Excellent organization and time management skills are required as well as strong interpersonal skills. PhD candidates expected graduation soon are also encouraged to apply.
Competitive salary and an excellent benefits package (Medical, Dental and Life insurances) are available and will commensurate with experience and accomplishments.
Full applications including curriculum vitae, a brief summary of past, current and future research interests and accomplishments (1-2 paragraphs), selected reprints of publications, three references and expected availability date should be submitted via email to:

Harvard School of Public Health ポスドク募集

以前所属していたHorng’s Labで新規ポスドク採用を行っておりますのでご案内させていただきます。
Dr Horngは自然免疫のスペシャリストで特にマクロファージのcell biologyを中心に行っております。現在のテーマは下記にありますようにmetabolism におけるマクロファージの役割と、代謝によるマクロファージの活性化および分化誘導に関して研究を行っております。また一方でカスパーゼ1をターゲットにインフラマソーム活性化時における細胞内シグナル活性および細胞死との関連を検討しております。


私自身もこのサイトを通じてラボに所属し、英語が不慣れな中、非常に丁寧に教えていただき2年間の期間を終え移動となっております。自然免疫やメタボリズムに興味がある方ご質問などありましたら気軽にご連絡ください。私自身ラボを離れていますので最終的な連絡は下記のDr. Horngに直接していただければ幸いです。

Dr. Tiffany Horng at the Department of Genetics & Complex Diseases and Immunology & Infectious Diseases in Harvard School of Public Health is looking for an outstanding postdoctoral fellow. We have recently shown that metabolic signaling pathways can regulate macrophage activation, and aim to further elucidate metabolic control of macrophage activation and effector responses. In another line of investigation, we seek to pursue our studies of inflammasome biology, including activation, regulation, and effector functions.

Candidates should have a background in innate immunity, immunology, and or immunometabolism, and should be skilled in cell biology, molecular biology, and basic mouse work, as demonstrated in their publication record. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree.

Please submit application, including a cover letter, CV and names and contact information of at least 3 references to:

Tiffany Horng, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
Department of Genetics and Complex Diseases
