    Postdoctoral Fellowships in Proteomics, Metabolomics and Alzheimer’s Disease Research


    One postdoctoral position is available for motivated candidates at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a premier center for biomedical investigation located in Memphis, Tennessee, USA. Our group has contributed to the discovery of ubiquitin code and RNA splicing dysfunction in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The successful applicant will develop mass spectrometry-based proteomics, metabolomics and systems biology tools and/or explore AD pathogenesis by the systems biology tools, as well as diverse molecular, cellular and genetic approaches, using clinical human AD specimens, mouse models, and human stem cell-derived organoids. The overarching aim is to study complex molecular interactions by systems biology, and provide novel insights into AD pathogenesis, therapeutic intervention, and disease biomarker discovery for precision medicine (https://www.stjude.org/peng). Our postdoctoral fellows have extensive interaction with other members for career development in cutting-edge technologies and biomedical research, with numerous postdoctoral alumni becoming principal investigators. Our publication record is available on Google Scholar (160+ publications, 20,000+ citations).
