Assistant Research Professor to investigate signaling, biochemical and biophysical properties of insulin analogs and glucagon analogs. Our group seeks to employ an Assistant Research Professor to develop a series of novel hormone analogs for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. The studies will involve both biochemical assays and cell-biological assays, including advanced forms of optical microscopy. Special attention will be paid to receptor activation and post-receptor signaling pathways. Analog design goals include physical and chemical stability with application in dual-hormone pump delivery systems.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. with strong laboratory and analytical skills. Prior experience with studies of insulin, glucagon, and their respective cell-signaling mechanisms is preferred. The ability to work independently to produce high-quality data and being an organized and enthusiastic scientist are most important.
