The Shen Lab at Duke University, Department of Biomedical Engineering, has an opening for a Postdoctoral Associate. The candidate will work on two projects to understand the fundamental mechanism of gastrointestinal epithelial functions. First, the candidate will use organoid and animal models to study how different nutrients can crosstalk and influence each other’s absorption, which may lead to long-term health implications. Second, the candidate will study how human and murine microbiota impact the intestinal epithelium differently, which may account for their impact on inflammatory bowel diseases.
