Three postdoctoral positions in Jinghua Hu’s lab at the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine

Scholarship: Fully funded
Degree: Ph.D
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines: Open

Scholarship Description:

Exciting opportunities for 3 postdoctoral researchers to join our dynamic and multidisciplinary team. With extensive support from NIH, DoD and non-federal grants over the past decades, we’re dedicated to advancing the understanding of the role of primary cilia in human disease. Primary cilia play a critical role in the development of major human organs and systems, but the pathogenesis of ciliopathies is poorly understood. We focus on elucidating how primary cilia sense environmental signals and influence cellular processes such as signal transduction and cell fate determination.Our cutting-edge research uses state-of-the-art techniques (biochemistry, imaging, in vivo disease models, omics analysis, epigenetics,drug screening) and spans rare genetic disorders, cellular senescence, neurodegeneration, obesity/diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders and novel therapeutic strategies using rodent disease models.
