Graduate (MSc and PhD) positions are available for enthusiastic and driven students wishing to study molecular and genetic mechanisms controlling mammalian energy metabolism, obesity, and cancer.
The lab uses a wide variety of molecular biology and biochemical approaches in cultured mammalian cells as well as methods to study physiology in genetically engineered mice. Commonly used techniques include: molecular cloning, mass spectrometry (metabolomics and proteomics), respirometry, RNA interference, Western blotting, quantitative RT-PCR, and fluorescent microscopy. In addition, physiological approaches are used such as in vivo metabolic phenotyping (MRI, energy expenditure, thermogenesis).
Students wishing to join the lab should email firstname.lastname@example.org with a clear description of how their interests align with the research in our lab, and why they think our lab is a good fit.
Please note that although funding support is not a prerequisite, all students are expected to apply for individual research fellowships.
