    Research Fellow

    Job Description

    The Systems Biology and Chromatin Computation laboratory (PI: Greg Tucker-Kellogg) is seeking a highly motivated research fellow to advance an optogenetic platform we have developed for reversible activation of the TGF-β pathway. This platform provides a uniquely powerful approach to dissect the TGF-β signalling network in space and time. The work will be performed in various cancer cell lines and stem cell lines, integrating both experimental and computational approaches.

    Responsibilities:
    • Development of novel optogenetic cell lines
    • Design and analysis of experiments to test the precise spatiotemporal dynamics of pahway signaling
    • ChIP-seq and RNA seq experiments
    • Analysis of ChIP-seq and RNA-seq data
    • Liasing with clinical and scientific collaborators
    • Writing and presenting research progress
    • PhD in Life Sciences or a related field with at least three years of relevant research experience and training. Specific experience in confocal microscopy, lentivirus-based cell line manipulation, and systems biology are each a plus.
    • Experience in computational analysis of genomic data.
    • Demonstrated accomplishments and proven track record of driving research to high impact publication.
    • Strong interest in cancer biology and the quantitative understanding of signalling systems.
    • Strong team player with a commitment to a diverse and productive work environment.
    • Demonstrated good oral and written communication skills.

    RESEARCH POSITIONS IN REEF ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION

    We are searching for the following researchers to join the Reef Ecology Lab to investigate the ecological and evolutionary history of corals in Singapore. Our objective is to further our understanding of the adaptation and resilience of coral reefs to environmental change using modern molecular genetic approaches.

    Candidates with a keen interest in interdisciplinary research focusing on the ecology and evolution of marine species and populations are welcome to apply.

    1. Research Fellow:
    Candidate with a PhD degree and prior research experience in marine field research and molecular biology using next-generation sequencing tools (e.g. DNA hybridisation capture, RNA-seq, RAD-seq) is required. Rescue SCUBA diver preferred. Singapore Citizens and Singapore PRs are encouraged to apply.

    2. Research Assistant:
    Candidate with at least a BSc (Honours) degree and prior research experience in field research and molecular biology is preferred. Preferably with Class 3 driving licence and Rescue SCUBA diving licence. Only Singapore Citizens and Singapore PRs may apply.

    These are full-time positions over two years, with possible extension. Remuneration will be commensurate with the candidates' qualifications and experience. Interested candidates should send their CVs to huangdanwei(AT)nus.edu.sg. Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted. Search will continue until a suitable candidate is found for each position.
