Post-doctoral Fellow
UCSD - CMI
A Post-doctoral position (PhD) is available in the laboratory of Amir Zarrinpar, MD, PhD, at University of California, San Diego in La Jolla, CA. The lab is interested in the intersection of circadian biology, gut physiology, and the gut microbiome and how the three interact to cause obesity, diabetes, steatohepatitis, dyslipidemia, and other gut-mediated diseases.

Specifically, the Zarrinpar lab is interested in the reciprocal interaction between the luminal environment (both the gut microbiome and the content) and the gut and how the two maintain physiological homeostasis and contribute to disease. Functional manipulation of the luminal environment is performed with a novel engineered bacteria platform that allows long-standing changes with a single treatment, essentially allowing us to “knock-in” genes into the gut microbiome to study their effects on host physiological processes. This research is performed primarily in animal models, with the potential to move into clinical populations. This position will focus on designing and engineering bacteria to functionally manipulate the gut microbiome and, with it, host physiology. With the help of the incumbent, the laboratory will be able to study the effects of specific bacterial functions and to test whether functional manipulations of the gut microbiome can lead to therapeutic or diagnostic agents. Many of the bacteria being modified are native/undomesticated E. coli strains that have mechanisms that protect their DNA from modification. Hence, the incumbent should be experienced with multiple methods of bacterial recombineering and for troubleshooting through problems.

Creativity, initiative, and persistence will be absolutely essential characteristics for the successful candidate. Additionally, we are looking for enthusiastic, self-motivated individuals who thrive in a fast-paced challenging start-up research environment and can multitask and interact well with others as part of a cohesive team.
