Fully funded PhD position in neural mechanisms of gut-brain communication

Dr. Yu Fu’s lab, Division of Neurometabolism in Health and Diseases

Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology

Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Singapore

Position Description

We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated candidate to join our laboratory studying how metabolism is regulated by gut-brain axis. The PhD position is fully funded by A*STAR SINGA program (https://www.a-star.edu.sg/Scholarships/for-graduate-studies/singapore-international-graduate-award-singa).

Metabolism is regulated by both peripheral and central nervous system, elucidating how the gut-brain axis is influenced and regulate metabolic process is our key research interest. To this end, we use cutting-edge techniques to characterize the genetic and functional changes in mouse gut-brain axis. These approaches include (but are not limited to) single cell sequencing, metabolomics, proteomics, in vivo imaging, whole brain imaging and systems neuroscience methods.
