Roles & Responsibilities

One Research Fellow position is available in the Laboratory of Rupshi Mitra, Assistant Professor in School of Biological Sciences at Nanyang Technological University. Our group is investigating ‘neurobiology of resilience in the context of external environment’. In particular we are keen to find out what makes some individuals resistant to stress and related disorders, while most others are susceptible. We will be using preclinical animal models to understand the fundamental biology of resilience. Eventually, we will be investigating translational prospect of resilience in human subjects.

Details of our research can be found at:

  • PhD with strong publication record and experience in animal handling and/or human subject research, in addition to regular call/molecular biology techniques.
  • Prior experience with rodent behaviour and surgery, and/or physiological/imaging readout in human subject will be a plus.
