The Post Doctoral Fellow will work as part of an interdisciplinary and translational team, with access to state-of-the-art facilities and resources to carry out both clinical and basic science studies. Using a wide range of established animal models, we are trying to understand how stressors during gestational/embryonic stages impact the development and physiology of adipose tissue in offspring. A multidisciplinary strategy is being used in this study, which includes animal experiments, metabolic phenotyping, in vivo functional assays and in vitro cell culture studies, next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics and microbiome analyses. The candidate will perform laboratory-based research in this area including the design, implementation, analysis, and interpretation of laboratory experiments, and assist in grant and manuscript preparation.
