The candidate will perform research in lipid metabolism and
stress response associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
and hyperlipidemia. Both in vitro (cell culture) and in vivo
(mouse) models are used to investigate the molecular and cellular
basis of regulation of energy metabolism or unfolded protein
response in the liver or digestion tracks. Molecular and cellular
approaches, pharmaceutical tools, and engineered animal models will
be utilized to address the questions and hypotheses regarding the
roles and mechanism by which circadian-regulated endoplasmic
reticulum stress sensors modulate lipid and glucose metabolism in
animal models of metabolic syndrome.
The candidate will design research experiments, perform
experiments, and interpret the results. The candidate will also
write research papers and apply for new research grants as
principal investigator from research funding agencies such as the
NIH, American Heart Association, and American Diabetes
The job duties will include the following: 1) Perform molecular and
cellular, biochemical, and metabolic research experiments to study
functions and mechanisms of cell stress responses in
hyperlipidemia, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and diabetes; 2)
breed genetically-engineered animal models and perform animal
experiments; 3) apply for external research grant support; 4)
supervise research assistants, research associates, or
undergraduate students in the lab; and 5) Write research
manuscripts and progress reports to funding agencies.
