Postdoctoral Associate Position in Diabetes Research

The Vasiliou Laboratory at the Yale School of Public Health is seeking a highly motivated, recent Ph.D. graduate to participate in a diabetes systems biology project. The successful candidate will explore the molecular basis of cell death in the pancreatic islet that leads to diabetes. The studies will involve the use of novel mouse models, and the utilization of molecular and cellular biology techniques, and metabolomics, genomics, epigenomics and proteomics approaches. To be considered for this postdoctoral position, a candidate is expected to possess a strong theoretical and experimental background in molecular and cellular biology or a related discipline. Candidates with an interest in studying diabetes are particularly encouraged to apply. Review of applications will begin on October 5, 2017, and will continue until a successful candidate is identified. Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter (highlighting experience, skills and goals), curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and contact information for three references (who would be contacted during the final stage of consideration).
