Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center at UCLA. Our research program focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of intestinal inflammation, mucosal repair and inflammatory cell signaling using a combination of in vitro and in vivo approaches. Ongoing projects include the role of neuropeptide and hormone signaling; intercellular communication pathways involving adipose tissue, the enteric nervous system and extracellular vesicles; and the study of non-coding RNA molecules (microRNAs, lncRNAs) in gastrointestinal function.
Qualified applicants will have a PhD or MD/PhD degree, strong oral/written communication and critical thinking skills. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in cell culture, animal physiology, molecular biology, mouse models and a strong research background in mucosal biology, gastrointestinal physiology and/or neuroscience. Candidates will be expected to contribute to ongoing projects and expand novel independent research projects in a collaborative research environment.
UCLA is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of diversity among its faculty, students and staff.
