We are in the final month of our recruitment season for a Postdoctoral Interdisciplinary Training Program in Diabetes Research at the University of Michigan Medical School. This NIH/NIDDK funded program provides an opportunity for postdoctoral fellows to pursue training in diverse aspects of diabetes research.
Training grant preceptors fall into major interest groups across the spectrum of type 1 and 2 diabetes research - islet biology, autoimmune diabetes, adipocyte biology, neuronal regulation of metabolism, mechanisms of insulin resistance, metabolic control in liver and muscle, and diabetes complications - each area containing investigators pursuing basic research with potential translational applicability. Laboratory training is supplemented by a core curriculum in molecular pathogenesis of diabetes, a series of educational seminars and classes (including ethics), and workshops on grant writing, career skills, and research methodologies.
Eligible candidates may have access to travel funds to visit the lab, university, mentors and interview. Please inquire before making any plans.
The start date is September 1, 2018, and applications are due on June 1, 2018. By the time of the application, candidates require to:
a) have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree(s) and a desire for a career in diabetes research
b) have a doctoral degree and have no more than three years of postdoctoral training
c) be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
d) submit all items listed on the application.
The University of Michigan is strongly committed to develop and maintain diversity in the ethnic, cultural, and gender backgrounds of its trainee population. The University of Michigan also complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other applicable federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability.
