This permanent, full time or part time post is available at the University of Exeter Medical School, College of Medicine & Health, based in Exeter.
Summary of the role
Specialists in Clinical Science, Cell and Molecular Biology, and Experimental Medicine are encouraged to apply. They will work on innovative research of the human beta-cell, exploring the effects of genetic mutations identified in patients with diabetes on for example beta cell development and function in order to improve the understanding of the development and function of the human insulin producing beta-cell. A key link with our work on human beta-cell development will be the establishment of beta-cell models based on pluripotent stem cells. Experimental medicine investigation of patients with genetic mutations will be crucial in this area. This work will be facilitated by the NIHR Exeter Clinical Research facility, which can provide patient specimens from genotyped patients as well as state of the art clinical facilities. Interdisciplinary work will be with our Living Systems Institute.
We are particularly interested in individuals who:
We welcome applications from individuals who have the skills described above but who have not, as yet, applied those skills to diabetes research but are keen to do so, as well as those already working in diabetes and its associated conditions.
