Opening for a Post-Doctoral Researcher –
Training in Mechanobiology and Cancer Signaling at the Center of Research Excellence in Mechanobiology in Singapore

Date available: immediate

Date posted: 17 February 2017

A post-doctoral position is available within the National University of Singapore (NUS) for 3 years with a generous salary and benefits, starting immediately. We search for a highly motivated candidate who has a strong background in the analysis of gene transcription by CHIP assays and epigenetic signatures. An experience with the analysis and micro and/or long non-coding RNAs would be appreciated as well.  The main focus of the grant-funded project is to characterize genes that are regulated by YAP and TAZ transcriptional co-factors.

Please send a short cover letter stating research experience and interests, curriculum vitae, and the names and addresses of 3 references to Marius Sudol, Ph.D. (email:

Research Fellow in the Laboratory of Molecular and Vascular Medicine

Date available: immediate

Date posted: 23 January 2017

Postdoctoral positions are available at the Laboratory of Molecular and Vascular Medicine. Our lab is interested to study how blood vessel dysfunctions underlie neurological diseases such as stroke and vascular dementia. We aim to advance the understanding of cerebrovascular complications through mechanistic interrogation of clinical biomarkers and development of human induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models. Successful candidates must be highly motivated and be able to work in an interdisciplinary environment. For a research overview, please refer to

Research Fellow

Date available: immediate

Date posted: 13 January 2017


The lab for microRNA Models of Neurodegenerative Disease at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology is seeking to recruit a highly motivated Research Fellow to investigate pathogenic pathways underlying neurodegeneration linked to loss of microRNA function.

The work will involve both in vitro and in vivo techniques, including cellular and molecular biology, generation and analysis of transgenic flies, behavioral assays, tissue dissections, immunohistochemical analysis and confocal microscopy.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, or a related discipline. The successful candidate will have expertise in genetics, advanced molecular biology techniques, a solid publication record, and strong scientific writing skills. They will be highly motivated, conscientious and be able to work independently, with good organisational, verbal and interpersonal skills, and the ability to work effectively in a team.

IMCB provides a competitive remuneration package commensurate with your specific qualifications and experience.  We welcome interested applicants to submit a brief cover letter, full CV and contact details of two professional referees to Dr Sherry Aw (

Research Fellow: Humanized Mouse Unit (HMU)

Date available: immediate

Date posted: 27 December 2016

One Research Fellow (postdoctoral) position is immediately available in the Humanized Mouse Unit (HMU) of the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, A*STAR, Singapore.

The understanding of many biological processes in humans relies on experimental studies in animal models, particularly rodents. However, many aspects of the human biological system are species specific, such as human specific cell types and immune genes. Our mission is to develop humanized mouse models which closely recapitulate in vivo human biology for the study of human diseases and drug development. This is critical to the understanding and development of therapeutics to many human specific diseases. For a research overview please refer to

Specific requirements:

  • The candidate should be self-driven to pursue a scientific career, motivated, independent and passionate about immunology research
  • Hold a PhD in a relevant field of immunology or virology.
  • Good knowledge and concept of immunology and demonstrated research experience and achievement
  • Good technical writing skills
  • Prior experience in working with mice, flow cytometry, immunofluorescence etc.


  • Undertake independent research under the direction of the PI and with other lab members
  • Assist the PI in quality control for experiments, data analysis, manuscript preparation, grant applications and lab management
  • Assist the PI in guiding and training students and junior research staff.
  • Present research achievements at internal and external seminars and conferences

Please email a detailed CV containing a list of publications to
Dr. Qingfeng Chen,

We regret that only shortlisted applicants will be notified.
