The Multidisciplinary Postdoctoral Training Program in Basic Diabetes Research provides an opportunity for postdoctoral fellows with a PhD to pursue training in diverse aspects of diabetes research.

Training grant preceptors fall into major interest groups across a spectrum of type 1 and 2 diabetes research - islet biology, autoimmune diabetes, adipocryte biology, neuronal regulation of metabolism, mechanisms of insulin resistance, metabolic control in liver and muscle, and diabetes complications – each area containing investigators pursuing basic research with potential translational applicability.

Laboratory training is supplemented by a core curriculum in molecular pathogenesis of diabetes, a series of educational seminars/classes and workshops on grant writing, career skills, and research methodologies.

Eligible candidates may have access to travel funds to interview with the mentor/lab, and visit the University and Ann Arbor. Please inquire before making plans.

Trainees must have a PhD or equivalent degrees and a desire for a career in diabetes research, no more than three years of postdoctoral training, and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Applicants will provide a research proposal, biosketch, and letter from mentor.

The program is committed to developing and maintaining diversity in the ethnic, cultural, and gender backgrounds of their trainees.
