(as of JULY 2021)
We are seeking experienced research staff for research specialist/associate and lab managerial positions. Prior experience in beta-cell and islet biology is highly desirable but not required.
We seek highly talented and motivated postdocs interested in the lab core areas of research. We are actively searching for a postdoctoral fellow to begin as soon as possible, likely around Sept 2021.
The fellow will design and perform experiments using a variety of model systems (mouse, tissue culture, human islets) and techniques (molecular, biochemistry, genetic, histology, and genomics).
Postdoctoral research in the lab commonly involves close interactions both within the lab and with collaborating groups. A major goal of our lab is to mentor and train fellows for future careers in academics and/or industry.
An MD and/or PhD in a science-related field, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to work interactively are required. Postdocs who have already secured, or are strong candidates for postdoc fellowships are strongly preferred.
Qualified applicants should email a letter of interest and a CV that includes three references to Dr. Banerjee. Please include 1) a statement about your interest in our lab, 2) career goals and objectives, and 3) information about citizenship/residency/Visa status.
Hopkins graduate students from any program are encouraged to email the PI to discuss a rotation.
We offer undergraduate students an intensive research experience working closely with a member of the lab. Students who are committed to working in the lab for a comprehensive longitudinal experience across their undergraduate years are preferred.
Students are encouraged to apply early in their college careers to maximize their research opportunity. Ideally, undergraduate students interested in research should join by the Spring Quarter of their freshman year, with the expectation of a serious commitment that includes full-time summer work and completion of an independent research project such as an Honors thesis or equivalent.
