Project Officer (Protein Structure & Function)

Updated: about 1 month ago
Job Type: FullTime

The School of Biological Sciences at Nanyang Technological University is seeking a talented and ambitious Senior Postdoctoral Fellow to join the Transcription and Chromatin Regulation Laboratory. The overall goal of our funded projects is to uncover the impact of oncogenic/inflammatory mediators and non-coding RNAs on enhancer regulation, chromatin dynamics and transcriptional control during disease pathogenesis (Nature Cell Biology 2015, 17: 1327-38; PNAS 2016, 113: 14402-07; Nature Communications 2018, 9: 3183).

The successful candidate should demonstrate excellent stem cell biology, epigenetics or RNA biology knowledge and prior expertise in iPSCs and/or tissue organoids generation, cell and molecular biology methods, and a variety of genome editing platforms, as evidenced by a strong publication list (first authored) in the relevant fields. He/she must be able to work in a dynamic and pro-active environment and demonstrate competence in CRISPR epigenome editing, RNA-related assays and genomics work including ChIP-seq and chromosome conformation capture assays.

Job Description:

The innovative candidate will join a team of experienced molecular and cell biology researchers and computational biologists to perform cutting-edge research in genome editing, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) disease models and non-coding RNA functions. Our laboratory is focused on developing disease models using iPSCs and tissue organoids to understand epigenomic reprogramming during the progression of cancers and autoimmune diseases. 

Job Requirements:

  • PhD and at least 5 years of postdoc experience in the relevant areas of stem cell biology, immunology, RNA biology or epigenetics

  • Extensive knowledge and experience in iPSCs, tissue organoids, biochemistry and molecular & cell biology

  • Strong publication track record, indicated by first author publications in high quality journals

  • Ability to write/contribute to research articles, grants and keep meticulous notes/proper scientific documentation

  • Strong interpersonal, critical thinking, written and oral communication skills

  • A strong team focus and ability to work independently

  • A demonstrated ability to supervise PhD students and junior research staff

The School of Biological Sciences seeks a diverse and inclusive workforce and is committed to equality of opportunity. We welcome applications from all and recruit on the basis of merit, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, marital status and family responsibilities, or disability.

We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
