PIBS Graduate Student Lab Rotations

The Samuelson laboratory is open for doctoral student research rotations. Dr. Samuelson is a member of two Ph.D. granting programs: Molecular & Integrative Physiology and Cellular & Molecular Biology. Rotation topics are designed to fit the interest of the student within the current research topics under study in the laboratory. Students interested in admission to the Program in Biomedical Sciences for Ph.D. training should consult the PIBS web site.

Postdoctoral Training

Postdoctoral positions are available to investigate molecular development and physiology of the gastrointestinal tract. Projects are currently focused on mechanisms of development and homeostasis of the stomach and intestine. In addition we are interested in pathophysiologic mechanisms leading to epithelial cell transformation or remodeling, including carcinogenesis. Current emphasis is on regulation of stem and/or progenitor cells by the Notch signaling pathway to control cell maintenance, proliferation and differentiation. Studies utilize a number of modern experimental tools and take advantage of genetically engineered mouse models, organ culture and cell lines.

To apply, please send a CV, names of 3 references, and a short summary of research accomplishments and career goals.
