Postdoctoral positions to investigate diabetic complications using cell biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, metabolomics, and mass spectrometry imaging technologies in animal models, cell culture models, and clinical studies are available in the laboratory of Dr. Kumar Sharma, Chief of Nephrology in the Department of Medicine at the University of Texas Health, San Antonio. Our laboratory uses targeted metabolomics and imaging mass spectrometry along with animal models, cell culture studies, and clinical studies to integrate basic research into translational medicine. Our research focuses on 1) spatial metabolomics and imaging mass spectrometry in diabetic kidney disease (DKD); 2) metabolomics and systems biology approaches to understanding of DKD; and 3) identifying biomarkers for DKD. We have recently received NIH funding to develop a kidney precision medicine program for analysis of spatial metabolomic profiling of kidney tissues to map disease states.
We are looking for highly motivated, talented and enthusiastic individuals. The candidate should have excellent communication skills, and be self-motivated, a quick-learner, and, importantly, a team player. Candidates require a research background in biology, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, bioinformatics, or related field. Additional experience in metabolomics, biomarker discovery, or bioinformatics is a plus. Minimum requirements are PhD, MD/PhD, or MD.
