Bernd Schnabl, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology, School of Medicine, University of California San Diego (UCSD), is currently searching for a motivated postdoc interested in microbiomics and liver disease. We are specifically interested in the role of the enteric microbiome in alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. We use in vitro technologies to study various liver cell types, and in vivo mouse models. A very important part of our laboratory is a translational aspect to identify targets for therapy and to generate interventions that are able to prevent or treat liver disease in humans. Several projects are available dependent on expertise and interest of the candidate. UCSD is a highly collaborative place that provides excellent individual career development opportunities and access to cutting edge technologies.
