Postdoc/Research Fellow positions: Systemic Cell Biology, iPS Cell Biology and Drug Screening

Postdoc/Research Fellows are currently being recruited to the new NUS laboratory. We are seeking talented, innovative and enthusiastic researchers with a PhD awarded within the last 10 years.

Systemic Cell Biology

The successful candidate will have a strong background in studies of cell signaling dynamics using biopysics and cell imaging methods such as fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) and fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM), biosensors, total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF), anisotropy and related time-resolved spectroscopy methods. Strong expertise in cell and molecular biology techniques is also essential.

iPS Cell Biology

The successful candidate will have a strong background in studies involving the generation and differentiation of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs). The aim of the project is the characterization of death receptor signaling in human neurons derived from patients with neurodegenerative diseases. Additional experience in cell signaling and neuronal cell biology will also be an important asset.

Drug Discovery

The successful candidate will have a strong background in studies of intracellular signaling involving microscopy techniques, gene reporter assays and biochemical assays. The aim of the project is the identification  of inhibitors to death receptor signaling taking advantage of recent knowledge on their mechanisms of activation and downstream signal propagation. Strong expertise in cell and molecular biology techniques is also essential.

Applications, including CV, list of publications and statement of future interests should be sent to Prof. Carlos Ibanez . 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 2013.

Deadline for the application is February 15, 2013.

Lab Manager position open

Lab Manager is currently being recruited to our NUS laboratory. The successful candidate will be a dynamic, service-minded person, with a strong research background in cellular or molecular biology, neurobiology, metabolism and/or mouse genetics. He/she will assist the group with managing and organizing lab routines, protocols, orders, equipment and reagents. He/she will also have a strong presence in the laboratory by conducting research together with other lab members or independently.

Work at the laboratory will focus on understanding the functions and signaling mechanisms of neuronal growth factors and their receptors in neural development, injury responses and metabolic regulation, for the development of better therapies to diseases of the nervous system and metabolism.

Applications should be sent by email before January 31 to .
