Postdoctoral Fellow | Job Code 20-015
Excellent opportunity to gain the postdoctoral training in a state-of-the–art research environment. The Yoshihara Lab is interested in the origins of life/physiology and the molecular genetics of pancreatic islets, metabolic disease, inflammation (including autoimmune diseases and diabetes) and using this information to devise regenerative medicine and small-molecule therapies for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. We are currently seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who is interested in the molecular basis of developmental biology and physiology and creating the novel therapeutics for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The Yoshihara laboratory will use multi-omics analysis (genomics, metabolomics, proteomics), animal model and stem cells as the powerful tool to study diabetes and metabolism, and to identify therapeutic targets in metabolic diseases. Experience in next-gen sequencing, mouse models, and/or stem cells is preferred but not required. Successful candidates will have or are in the final stages of completing a doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D. /Ph.D., or M.D.), a track record of productivity with peer-reviewed publications, and excellent communication skills.
Required Skills & Qualifications:
- Ph.D. degree in Biology or a related life science.
- Peer reviewed publication in the related field.
- Some prior experience handling lab mice or human pluripotent stem cells
- Proficiency with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Power Point)
Description of Duties:
- Performing the research projects for peer reviewed publication, patent application and presentation
