A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ian M. Willis in the Department of Biochemistry, Albert Einstein College of Medicine to study the impact of RNA polymerase III gene transcription on obesity, metabolism and gene expression.

Building on the discovery that the Maf1 protein in yeast is a nutrient- and stress-regulated repressor of RNA polymerase III, the laboratory has recently found that Maf1 knockout mice are resistant to diet-induced obesity. Current research is investigating the mechanisms underlying the obesity resistance of Maf1 knockout mice including how changes in gene expression and metabolism contribute to energy expenditure in this unique model.
