Requisition 14429

Postdoctoral Fellow | Diabetes and Metabolism Research Institute | Ke Ma Lab

Position Summary and Key Responsibilities:

Two Postdoctoral Fellow positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Ke Ma, Associate Professor, at the Diabetes and Metabolism Research Institute within Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope, CA. The Ma lab applies state-of-the-art circadian biology, molecular and cellular biology approaches to diabetes and obesity research, and we have established a unique program in deciphering the signaling mechanisms underlying circadian clock control in metabolic tissue development, growth and functional capacity. We are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral fellows with strong enthusiasm for metabolic disease or stem cell research to discover novel signaling and epigenetic mechanisms mediating circadian clock functions in adipose depots and skeletal muscle. Ultimately, our goal is to unravel circadian etiologies underlying the current epidemics of metabolic diseases for targeted therapeutic interventions. Utilizing biochemical and molecular biology approaches combined with animal physiology in genetic mouse models, the specific research directions in Ma Lab will explore, 1) epigenetic networks mediating clock nutrient-sensing function in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle; 2) circadian clock regulation of stem cell behavior in skeletal muscle development, growth, and regeneration; and 3) novel roles of circadian regulators in cancer development and metabolism.
