Post-Doctoral Position in Diabetes & Obesity -Endocrinology

New Orleans, LA
Open Date:
May 24, 2019

Our group is seeking a candidate for a post-doctoral position in a groundbreaking area of diabetes research. Our Laboratory focuses on identifying the cellular and molecular mechanisms of sex differences underlying the risks of diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome with a specific focus on islet biology and dysfunction. The candidate will use genetic, molecular and physiological tools to study mice with conditional knockouts of steroid hormones receptors as well as human cell culture models in highly controlled environments. The applicant will gain a full understanding of the biological processes at the root of obesity, insulin resistance, beta-cell dysfunction and diabetes, and the ability to modulate sex steroid actions can have a therapeutic impact on these diseases.


The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. or M.D., be self-motivated, show interest in sex differences and diabetes research and will have significant experience in cell culture, standard biochemical and molecular biology techniques.
