We are seeking an independent Scientist with strong expertise in integrative metabolism and energy balance with a scientific expertise on neuronal

regulation of body weight, food intake, energy expenditure, and Metabolism. The Metabolic and Muscle Disease group at Regeneron is committed to

discovering novel targets and innovative medicines to treat obesity, diabetes, dyslipidemia, NASH and muscle diseases. The candidate will be responsible for guiding and executing rigorous in vivo mechanistic studies for target discovery, validation, and novel therapeutic development.

As a Scientist in Muscle and Metabolism, a typical day might include the following:

- Independently designing, conducting, analyzing, and troubleshooting rigorous in vivo and in vitro experiments to drive projects
- Identifying and implementing novel areas, technologies and approaches for validating targets and modalities to support of development of therapeutics
- Synthesizing results across programs and communicating progress and

discoveries within the Muscle and Metabolic Disease Group and across different functions

This role may be for you if:

- You are self-driven, team-oriented and productive with proven scientific problem-solving abilities
- You thrive in a creative, flexible, team environment
- You are able to excel in a fast-track environment while contributing to multiple projects
- You are a leader and enjoy driving ideas and projects forward

To be considered for this role, you must have a M.D. or Ph.D with at least 3-5 years of postdoctoral training in Neuroscience, Metabolism, Gut-brain, Adipose-brain, and/or experience with translational clinical science. A proven publication record demonstrating productivity and scientific rigor is required. Strong

hands-on experience with in vivo neuroscience-based approaches including

stereotaxic surgeries and in vivo assessment of metabolism is crucial.

Experience in biochemistry, flow cytometry, molecular biology, in vitro and

ex-vivo assays are required. Research experience with brain IHC/ISH, adipocyte and/or neuronal culture, optogenetics, single-nuclei RNASeq and/or spatial

transcriptomics is desirable. Excellent written and presentation skills are essential.
