The Irani Lab at the University of Iowa seeks motivated post-doctoral candidates with a desire to succeed and contribute to high impact projects. The Lab has broad interests and expertise in vascular biology, metabolism, molecular signaling, aging, and the microbiome. Some of the current projects in the lab are: determining how microbiome-regulated microRNAs govern vascular/cardiac/metabolic function, examining the microbiome-microRNA-vascular autophagy axis, exploring how the gut-brain axis governs non-shivering thermogenesis through microRNA-regulated peripheral serotonin, exploring how vascular Sirtuin1 regulates metabolism by modulating the secretome of the endothelium, and much more. The Lab environment is highly collaborative, supportive of the career advancement of deserving trainees, and has a strong track record of training post-doctoral fellows to becoming successful faculty. Post-doctoral fellows in the lab receive the necessary mentorship, are given full ownership and credit for their work, and are afforded the freedom to pursue novel, high risk/high impact projects that can lay the foundation for their future independent careers. They are permitted and assisted in submitting mentored, and eventually, independent, grant applications.
