Welcome to the Tseng Lab


Our laboratory is part of the Section on Integrative Physiology and Metabolism at the Joslin Diabetes Center.  We focus on the mechanisms underlying the regulation of the energy balance to develop potential therapies for combating obesity and related diseases.

We are seeking an independent, motivated and creative postdoctoral fellow to carry out the studies on the interplay between progenitors and inductive signals in the regulation of differentiation and metabolic function of brown fat using broad-based approaches, including cellular and molecular analyses, transgenic models and ‘-omic’ profiling.

Candidates must hold a PhD in Biology/Physiology (or an equivalent scientific degree), be highly proficient in cellular/molecular biology and experimental animal work, and be fluent in spoken and written English. Laboratory research requires precision and accuracy, attention to detail, carefully following protocols and documenting experimental procedures and results.

Please send a cover letter describing research experiences and interests, CV, and contact information for three letters of reference by email to: Yu-Hua Tseng, PhD, E-mail:
