Two postdoc fellow positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Ling Yang in the Department of Medical Genetics and Molecular Biochemistry at Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Yang laboratory combines genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, molecular biology, cellular biology, biochemistry, physiology, and CRISPR-mediated genome engineering to explore the complex regulatory networks of metabolic disorders, and to translate our findings into novel therapeutic approaches for metabolic disorders treatment. Our current research interests are 1) long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and protein-coding genes in metabolic disorders including but not limited to fatty liver diseases, dyslipidemia, and obesity; 2) RNA or RNA targeted therapies to treat metabolic disorders; and 3) Multi-Omics approach to dissect the pathological process of metabolic disorders.
To apply, please send a letter of interest detailing your expertise, CV, and contact information of three references to Dr. Ling Yang, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, at email@example.com. Applications are accepted immediately and the positions will be open until filled. The details of our research can be found at https://medicine.temple.edu/ling-yang
