Postdoctoral Positions

The laboratory of Dr. Raghu Mirmira is seeking a highly motivated and well trained individual for a postdoctoral position.  The Mirmira lab studies the molecular mechanisms of islet ? cell dysfunction in type 1 diabetes mellitus.  The laboratory has been recently funded by the NIH to serve as a major hub in the Human Islet Research Network, a nation-wide research network that will focus on mechanisms and therapies for ? cell dysfunction in type 1 diabetes.  The research will involve the isolation of ? cells from human islets, with the subsequent characterization of its DNA methylome for the development of novel biomarkers of early disease onset.  The successful candidate will have experience in gene transcription, molecular biology techniques (especially sub cloning and PCR), a strong interest in bioinformatics, and a desire to obtain independent extramural funding.  Interested applicants should send a CV and cover letter electronically to Dr. Raghu Mirmira,
