Requirements

  • NIH funding-supported post-doctoral position is available for individuals interested in metabolism, epigenetics, and/or stem cell biology. Research projects include the characterization of novel phenotypes in animal models, integration of multi-omics (transcriptomic and epigenomic) datasets to investigate fundamental mechanisms of obesity and metabolic diseases, and exploring the therapeutic potential of basic discoveries. Experience in diabetes mouse models, epigenetics, and/or bioinformatics is preferred but not required. Candidate should enjoy working independently in a collaborative setting. 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.

Responsibilities

  • The Epigenomics of Metabolic Diseases Laboratory at the Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering and Division of Endocrinology at Mayo Clinic is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows who are interested in investigating the fundamental mechanisms and therapeutic development of diabetes and metabolic diseases. Our laboratory focuses on creating novel models to study diabetes and metabolism, and to identify therapeutic targets in metabolic diseases. Research directions include using mouse models, human tissues, and organoids to investigate the epigenomic regulation of cellular dysfunction in diabetes and metabolic diseases (PNAS 2021, Cell 2018, Cell Metabolism 2016, Cell Stem Cell 2015), and understanding the fundamental mechanisms in transcription and chromatin biology (Cell Stem Cell 2013).
  • A Research Fellow at Mayo Clinic is a temporary position intended to provide training and education in research. Individuals will train in the research program of a Mayo Clinic principal investigator. Qualified individuals will demonstrate the potential for research as evidenced by their training and peer-reviewed publications and should become competitive for national research grants. Proof of English proficiency is required for J-1 Short-Term Scholars, Research Scholars, Professors, Specialists, and Student Interns sponsored by Mayo Clinic.
