A postdoctoral position is available in the Fu laboratory in the Department of Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine for a translational research project studying the role of circadian homeostasis in suppression of obesity-related liver cancer. The successful candidate is expected to have training background in molecular and cellular biology and good interpersonal skills to join one of our exciting research projects. The lab uses state-of-the-art technologies including targeted gene expression studies as well as global gene expression profiling, such as RNAseq, whole genome sequencing (WGS), ChIP-seq, in vivo nuclear run-on, proteomics and metabolomics to define the pathophysiological mechanism and therapeutic targets specific to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)-induced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
