Graduate Students

We are always seeking exceptionally talented and hard-working graduate students from UAB GBS or other UAB graduate programs.  Students interested in rotating in the lab should email Dr. Banerjee with a brief statement of interest and CV or resume.  


We seek highly talented and motivated postdocs interested in the lab core areas of research. We anticipate that an active search for a postdoctoral fellow will open fall 2020, to begin shortly thereafterThe 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 at UAB. Postdoctoral training includes participation in seminars and meetings of the Division of Endocrinology and the UAB Comprehensive Diabetes Center.  A major goal of our lab is to mentor and train fellows for future careers in academics and 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.  


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.

Thank you!
