  • The Gastrointestinal Barrier Function Laboratory housed within the Enteric Neurosciences Program at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN is seeking an enthusiastic post-doctoral fellow to join our highly collaborative and translational research team looking at pathophysiological mechanisms of gastrointestinal motility disorders. The laboratory is at the forefront of research in human neurogastrointestinal disorders like post-infection irritable bowel syndrome and gastroparesis. We use a combination of techniques in physiology, imaging, molecular and cellular biology and animal models. We are particularly looking for a candidate interested in studying commensal interactions with luminal mediators of disease pathophysiology, particularly those affecting intestinal barrier function. The successful candidate would have a PhD in physiology, microbiology, immunology, or neurosciences. This position is not for clinical or MD candidates. Although we welcome candidates at various stages of their career, we especially encourage candidates who are/will be freshly graduating to reach out to learn about the laboratory.
