Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Assistant Professor in the Macrophage Metabolism Laboratory of Dr. Tiffany Horng

  Job Description:

  The Macrophage Metabolism Laboratory of Dr. Tiffany Horng has recently moved from Harvard. T.H. Chan School of Public Health to open a new laboratory at the School of Life Science and Technology (SLST) at the ShanghaiTech University in Shanghai, China. We are looking for ambitious and highly driven Postdoc Fellows or Research Assistant Professors to work with Dr. Horng to elucidate mechanisms by which cellular metabolism supports macrophage biology in a variety of physiological and pathophysiological contexts. The research will be based in the modern open lab space in the SLST in ShanghaiTech University, situated in the heart of Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park in the Pudong Science District in Shanghai. Very competitive salary and benefits will be provided for this position.

  The lab’s research is in the burgeoning field of immunometabolism. Drawing on our extensive expertise in studying macrophage biology and metabolism, we seek to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which metabolism is coordinated with signal transduction, transcription, and gene regulation in controlling macrophage activation by immune signals and signals of infection. Towards this end, the lab employs a combination of tissue culture models, molecular biology, metabolomics, genetics, biochemistry, and mouse models.

  In our studies, we have discovered that the AKT-mTOR pathway, a central metabolic pathway, integrates metabolic signals to control of macrophage activation, especially energetically demanding aspects of macrophage activation. The Akt-mTOR pathway controls production of Ac-CoA, the metabolic substrate for histone acetylation, to regulate histone acetylation and expression of inducible genes during macrophage activation. In contrast, aberrant activity of the Akt-mTOR pathway leads to inappropriate gene induction and macrophage activation. In ongoing studies, we have been studying how mitochondrial metabolism impinges on chromatin to regulate gene induction and macrophage activation. For more information about the lab’s research, please see: http://slst.shanghaitech.edu.cn/2018/1129/c302a36493/page.htm. For representative publications, please see: Langston et al, Nat Imm 2019 (PMID 31384058); Jung et al, Nat Cell Biol 2019 (MPID30602764); Covarrubias et al, eLIFE 2016 (PMID 26894960); Byles et al, Nat Comm 2013 (PMID 24280772), and Jung et al, Frontiers in Immunology 2017 (PMID 28197151). Specific projects for the candidate will be determined through discussions with Dr. Horng, depending on his/her skills and experience as well as the availability and timeliness of the projects.

  The successful candidate will have a strong track record and will demonstrate excellent inter-personal, organizational and time management skills and excellent English communication skills. He/she must have a strong passion for science and the ability to work independently as well as part of a team. Applications from adventurous foreign individuals are also highly encouraged.
