Postdoctoral Fellow – Placental Cell Biology
NIEHS/NIH
A fully funded postdoctoral position will be available on or after December 2024 in the laboratory of Dr. Carlos Guardia, Placental Cell Biology Group, NIEHS/NIH. Dr. Guardia’s laboratory focuses on the basic molecular mechanisms that control placenta development and function, with a strong focus on autophagy, intracellular trafficking, and secretory pathways of hormones and extracellular vesicles.

The successful candidate will study the molecular mechanisms of autophagy and its regulation in the placenta. We’re interested in understanding how placental cells respond to several stressors during pregnancy and how autophagy also regulates placenta and embryo development. The first topic is focused on characterizing the role of autophagy during metabolic stress such hypoxia and starvation to assure proper fetal development. The second topic aims to understand the role of several autophagy related (ATG) genes in placenta development and aging as a regulator of both cell differentiation and apoptosis. To carry out these interdisciplinary studies, we develop tools that draw from protein biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, high-throughput sequencing, proteomics, mouse models, CRISPR, and advanced microscopy. Most of our work takes advantage of mouse and human cell lines as model systems, including human term placentas we obtain from collaborators.

The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust
The Helmsley Charitable Trust seeks an Associate Program Officer who will work closely with the T1D Program Officer within an evolving grant portfolio that aims to develop better drugs and devices to improve health outcomes and reduce the burden for people living with T1D. One of the key focus areas will be expanding the grant portfolio around developing novel insulin and glucagon therapies to enable better glucose management for people living with T1D.

The ideal candidates will be intellectually curious, action oriented, and skilled collaborators, who can also work independently. They will think and react strategically and with flexibility in response to continually evolving organizational priorities and opportunities. The APO is also encouraged to follow their curiosity and interest areas within their respective grant portfolio in addition to general programmatic responsibilities.

The APO will be responsible for substantive programmatic support including, but not limited to: review and response to proposals, conducting due diligence for potential grants or strategic areas, writing grant recommendations, monitoring progress of existing grants, tracking project reports and budgets, helping to plan and execute meetings, maintaining positive and proactive communication with grantees, and supporting strategic planning efforts. Some domestic travel is expected for meetings with potential and current grantees, as well as to relevant conferences.

You are right for this role if you are passionate about improving the lives of people living with a complex chronic disease like type 1 diabetes. This role will involve collaboration as part of a larger Helmsley T1D team which aims to improve the lives of people living with T1D in the U.S. through the following strategic areas:
- Develop Better Drugs and Devices
- Bring Diabetes Care Beyond the Clinic
- Improve Health Care Systems
- Address Health Disparities
