Roles of metabolism in the developmental origins of health and longevity

A postdoctoral research position funded by the Wellcome Trust is available in the laboratory of Dr. Alex Gould at the Francis Crick Institute in London. The lab works on the mechanisms by which dietary nutrients during development can have profound long-term effects upon adult metabolism and lifespan. We are looking for a highly motivated researcher with experience in molecular biology and/or metabolism. The successful applicant will be able to choose from several Drosophila and mouse models that have been established in our lab (PMID: 21816278, PMID: 26451484, PMID: 29123106, PMID: 29515102 and unpublished). They will be exposed to a range of techniques including genetics, molecular biology, confocal microscopy, biochemistry, metabolomics as well as mass spectrometry imaging (PMID: 22246326, PMID: 26451484). Access will be provided to state-of-the-art facilities in advanced light and electron microscopy, metabolomics and single-cell sequencing. Examples of other projects ongoing in the lab can be seen at:
