Job ref RS50: Postdoctoral scientist in Liver Metabolism and NAFLD

We are seeking an enthusiastic, flexible and committed scientist with a strong background in cell culture and molecular biology to explore the role of hepatic/systemic metabolism in NAFLD and NASH-HCC in advanced multi-organ cell culture systems. The successful applicant will join a new group in the Roger Williams Institute of Hepatology (RW-IoH) investigating “Liver Metabolism and NAFLD” and led by Principal Investigator Professor Michele Vacca.

Applications are invited from postdoctoral scientists with a proven scientific interest and publication track record in this area. The post holder will be required to proactively design and run experiments; record, analyse and publish in high impact peer reviewed journals, and participate in educational programmes within the Institute.

Using an integrated system biology/translational approach also implying the development of sophisticated (multi-)organ on chip methods, the successful candidate will play a pivotal role in a programme aimed to mechanistically study the consequences of impaired lipid metabolism on NAFLD/HCC. These activities will generate novel methods as well as actionable knowledge on NAFLD/HCC pathophysiology with the final aim to identify/validate targets for pharmacological studies able to interfere with NASH/HCC natural
