Postdoctoral position to study the role of pancreatic progenitors in development and regeneration

Baltimore, Maryland (US)
Following NIH guidelines
February 24 2016

The Parsons Lab in the Institute for Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins University seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow. The lab has developed several new techniques to facilitate studying regeneration in zebrafish and produced innovative research on the role of progenitors in both pancreas development and repair. A successful candidate would possess a strong research background in developmental biology, stem cell biology, and ideally zebrafish genetics. Preference will be given to applicants with additional research experience in studying functional genomics.

Good written and oral communication skills are essential, along with excellent organizational skills. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to apply for fellowship grants and actively manage ongoing projects, including investigating how the contribution of pancreas progenitors to regeneration is regulated at a genomic level.

IGM provides numerous opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. The Parsons Lab is committed to scientific excellence, diversity, and to providing mentorship for professional growth. Please send a cover letter, CV, and three academic references to Michael Parsons, PhD at
