Job Description:

With your help, we can change the future of healthcare!Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is an organization known nationally for excellence in Inflammatory Bowel Disease treatment, research, and education. Our Inflammatory Bowel Disease Institute (IBDI) is searching for a highly motivated Research Postdoctoral Scientist. We invite you to consider this exciting opportunity and provide us with an opportunity to learn more about you and your skills!The Devkota Lab studies human health and disease through the trillions of bacteria that live in our gut. These bacteria not only make up more than half the cellular composition of the human body, they also generate a vast array of byproducts that serve as currencies for the exchange of information between our body and the outside world.Of all the external factors that can influence the trading between bacteria and human cells, the amino acids, sugars, fatty acids, and fibers that make up our diet are the most ubiquitous and potent. The emergent patterns of microbial growth and productivity reveal both novel, and long-evolved relationships between host and microbe that can be leveraged for health.Our goal is to define the mechanistic underpinnings of diet's extraordinary impact on the gut microbiome and translate these findings into prospective human studies in patients suffering from inflammatory and metabolic diseases in order to add a powerful dimension to the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), diabetes, and cancer.We are additionally studying the potential host-microbe underpinnings of currently untreatable and unpredictable phenomena in IBD such as ileal fibrosis, peri-anal fistulae, extra-intestinal complications/manifestations that severely affect quality of life in these patients.
