A postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Quinn Peterson in the Center for Regenerative Medicine and the Department of Physiology & Biomedical Engineering, Mayo Clinic, to study pancreatic islet cell differentiation from pluripotent stem cells. The Center for Regenerative Medicine was established to develop and translate regenerative therapies into clinical application. Research in the Peterson Lab aims to build human pancreatic islets that may be useful for transplantation into patients with diabetes. Highly qualified and motivated investigators (PhD and/or M.D.) with interest and experience in tissue engineering, stem cells and/or diabetes are encouraged to apply. Experience with stem cell culture, flow cytometry, immunofluorescence, and animal work is helpful but not essential.
Must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent doctoral degree in a field deemed relevant by the program. Research Fellow is appropriate for individuals who have completed no more than one prior postdoctoral fellowship, at Mayo Clinic or elsewhere.
Candidates should attach a letter of interest including a CV and the names and contact information for 3 references using the "Apply Now" button.
