Research Support - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
Postdoctoral Associate position in the laboratory of Dr. Emilyn Alejandro focused on diabetes and metabolism research. The laboratory uses genetic mouse models to investigate the pathogenic mechanisms of pancreatic beta-cell physiology and pathophysiology. Specifically, the lab is focused to understand how maternal diet during pregnancy alters the offspring's beta-cell function and programs susceptibility to diabetes. To identify the mechanistic link between prenatal diet and sensitivity to cellular stress dysregulation we will investigate the roles of O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT), a nutrient-sensing protein and a key regulator of cellular stress responses using genetic mouse models.
Must have a Ph.D. in physiology or one of the biomedical sciences, be highly motivated and productive and dedicated to a research career. This position is also ideal for a recent PhD graduate who wants to learn new research methods and embark on a successful academic career.
