Mechanistic Studies in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver DiseasePosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Oct-02
A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Yaron Rotman, Liver & Energy Metabolism Section, at the Liver Diseases Branch of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), located on the NIH main campus in Bethesda, MD. Our laboratory studies non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and focuses on mechanisms involved in the accumulation of liver fat and progression to injury. We employ a wide variety of techniques and models including molecular biology, “omics” (lipidomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics and proteomics), cell culture, animal models, genetic data and human clinical samples.
The post-doctoral fellow will study the function and mechanism of newly-identified key modulators of NAFLD pathogenesis that have the potential to become therapeutic targets. The fellow will work in a stimulating environment with a fun group of co-workers and will have opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations, access to cutting edge technology and interaction with clinical aspects of research. Participation in courses and seminars for personal career development is strongly encouraged. Stipend is commensurate with experience according to NIH policy.
