Positions are available at the A*STAR IMCB – Laboratory of Chromatin Dynamics & Disease Epigenetics. The laboratory is interested to study how chromatin deficiencies underlie human diseases such as cancer and developmental disorders. A comprehensive understanding of epigenetic-based mechanisms will allow us to: (1) elucidate disease mechanisms that will guide the development of new epigenetic-based therapeutic modalities, and (2) utilize this knowledge to re-engineer cellular phenotypes through manipulation of chromatin structure and function, for regenerative medicine applications.
We employ a varied experimental approach that includes the use of Next-Generation Sequencing technologies, genome-editing tools, biochemical and molecular assays, as well as stem cells and animal models to address our questions of interest.
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc with relevant training in biochemistry, developmental biology, or related fields. Candidates with prior experience in chromatin biology, genomics and/or stem cell biology will be considered favorably. The candidate will undertake research related to epigenetic mechanisms in development and disease.
Possess a Ph.D. in relevant field from a well-recognized University.
Good publication records in peer-reviewed journals.
Expertise in routine cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology techniques (protein biochemistry, cloning, ChIP, qPCR, etc).
Highly motivated and passionate for research.
Able to work flexible hours
Able to undertake independent research and be an effective team player.
Initiate, conduct and lead project related to epigenetic regulation in stem cells and neurodevelopment.
PhD in Life Sciences, Molecular Biology or Biochemistry
Interested candidates are asked to send a cover letter detailing your research motivations, CV, and the names and email addresses of three references to Tee Wee Wei (firstname.lastname@example.org).
