Requisition 14429

Postdoctoral Fellow | Diabetes and Metabolism Research Institute | Ke Ma Lab

Position Summary and Key Responsibilities:

Two Postdoctoral Fellow positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Ke Ma, Associate Professor, at the Diabetes and Metabolism Research Institute within Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope, CA. The Ma lab applies state-of-the-art circadian biology, molecular and cellular biology approaches to diabetes and obesity research, and we have established a unique program in deciphering the signaling mechanisms underlying circadian clock control in metabolic tissue development, growth and functional capacity. We are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral fellows with strong enthusiasm for metabolic disease or stem cell research to discover novel signaling and epigenetic mechanisms mediating circadian clock functions in adipose depots and skeletal muscle. Ultimately, our goal is to unravel circadian etiologies underlying the current epidemics of metabolic diseases for targeted therapeutic interventions. Utilizing biochemical and molecular biology approaches combined with animal physiology in genetic mouse models, the specific research directions in Ma Lab will explore, 1) epigenetic networks mediating clock nutrient-sensing function in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle; 2) circadian clock regulation of stem cell behavior in skeletal muscle development, growth, and regeneration; and 3) novel roles of circadian regulators in cancer development and metabolism.

Founded in 1913 and headquartered in Duarte, California, City of Hope is a remarkable non-profit institution, where compassion and advanced care go hand-in-hand with excellence in clinical and scientific research. City of Hope is a National Cancer Institute designated Comprehensive Cancer Center and a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of the nation's leading cancer centers that develops and institutes standards of care for cancer treatment. Position Summary This position is in Dr Helena Reijonen's laboratory, https://www.cityofhope.org/helena-reijonen, at the Department of Diabetes Immunology within the Diabetes & Metabolism Research Institute at the City of Hope, https://www.cityofhope.org/research/diabetes-metabolism-research-institute/diabetes-metabolism-research-institute-faculty. Key Responsibilities include: The main focus of Dr Reijonen's research is the understanding of the cause of type 1 diabetes and translating this knowledge into immune therapies with the ultimate goal to cure the disease. Gained knowledge of the genetic and mechanistic pathways leading to the destruction of the insulin producing beta cells by the individual's own immune system will be translated into targeted intervention strategies to stop this process and protect beta-cells. We also aim at the discovery of immune correlates that can predict progression of type 1 diabetes before the clinical symptoms of the disease appear. These immune correlates are also valuable for the monitoring of the outcomes of islet transplantation in type 1 diabetes patients and in the evaluation of efficacy of the targeted therapies in diverse patient populations. Basic education, experience and skills required for consideration: * A Ph.D. degree in life or biomedical sciences, or a related discipline is required. * A minimum of 5 years experience in cellular immunology required. City of Hope is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
