Washington University of St. Louis Postdoctoral Research Associate - Endocrinology, Metabolism & Lipid Research - 48983 in St. Louis, Missouri

Post Doc Instructions

Please do not submit an application to this posting. To apply for this postdoctoral research opportunity, follow the directions below in “Applicant Special Instructions”.

Department Name/Job Location

This position is in the Department of Internal Medicine - Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism & Lipid Research. This position is for the Medical School Campus.

Essential Functions

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Irfan Lodhi in the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism & Lipid Research at Washington University School of Medicine. The Lodhi lab uses cutting-edge techniques such as CRISPR/Cas9, next-generation sequencing, lipidomics and proteomics. The overall goal of the lab is to understand the role of lipid metabolism pathways in the regulation of energy homeostasis. We are particularly interested in how the multifunctional organelles called peroxisomes channel lipids to discrete subcellular compartments to influence metabolism. In this line of investigation, our recent studies suggest that peroxisome-derived lipids regulate mitochondrial dynamics and brown fat-mediated thermogenesis (see Park et al. 2019, Journal of Clinical Investigation 129(2):694-711).
