Postdoctoral Training Opportunity – Pancreatitis Research at the Sosa-Pineda Lab

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the Sosa-Pineda Laboratory at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. This position will investigate the role of the lymphatic vasculature in pancreatitis. The study will use mouse models of acute and chronic pancreatitis, 3D imaging, and state-of-the-art techniques. 

Pancreatitis is the leading cause of gastrointestinal disease-related hospital admissions and carries substantial socioeconomic burden. Acinar cell injury and destruction are initial events in pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis is characterized by transient local inflammation and tissue damage resolution. This process entails noticeable changes in the lymphatic vasculature.

Highly motivated candidates who recently obtained a PhD or MD degree and have a strong background in disease mouse models and vascular biology are encouraged to apply. Interested individuals should send their curriculum vitae, a brief description of their research interests, and the names of three references to Dr. Beatriz Sosa-Pineda, PhD at
