Descripción de la oferta

We have HHMI funded opportunities for Postdoctoral researchers (2 open positions), PhD students, undergraduate students (see Undergraduate Scholars Program and Janelia-Meyerhoff Undergraduate Summer Program) and visitor scientists (Visiting Scientist Program).

Our lab has open positions within the new 4D-Cellular Phisiology (4DCP) Area at Janelia – Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), specifically in the field of Brain-Body interactions.

We will study how the nervous system and the cells of the organs, specifically the pancreas, interact during development and in disease states. We will use state-of-the-art imaging technologies and new genetic tools for temporal manipulation of cells in vivo (in zebrafish and mouse), to define the cellular origins and interactions underlying the development of the neuroendocrine system, which regulates lifelong glucose homeostasis. Moreover, the findings will guide engineering of more physiological in vitro 3D systems in which to better model health and disease conditions. In the long-term, we plan to extend these studies to other organs (e.g., liver, lungs) to determine multiorgan interconnections in vivo . As members of the new 4DCP area at Janelia, we envision to participate in a broad collaborative strategy to determine general principles of cell and tissue organization across systems.
