Are you looking to make a significant difference by contributing to the advancement of microRNAs as potential drug targets? If you are curious on what it takes to apply your skills to make medicines, let this be the bridge that gets you there!

We are seeking an ambitious post-doctoral scientist with strong research and communication skills to contribute to high visible research projects. Your work will contribute to the development of microRNAs as possible drug targets in modulating macrophage plasticity in autoimmunity. In this role, you will:

  • Determine if modulation of miR expression is sufficient to overcome persistent inflammation to repolarize macrophages to resolve inflammation and deliver efficacy in vivo models

  • Work with bioinformaticians, in vivo pharmacologists, immunologists and genetic medicines

  • Screen and validate biology of pathophysiologically relevant miRs

  • Identify areas of biology/technology gaps in miR/antagomiR modulation in macrophages and champion creative solutions to address those needs. Maintain external awareness and learning to benefit the organization.

About Eli Lilly’s Postdoctoral Scientist Program

When it comes to research and development, our goal is to discover and deliver innovative medicines that make life better for people around the world. It’s challenging, expensive and often filled with failure. But even when we fail, we advance medical science and understanding by learning more about diseases, biology and chemistry – ultimately bringing new solutions one step closer to reality.

Over the course of our history, we have shed light on some of the toughest health care problems known to man – diabetes, heart disease, infectious diseases, neuroscience disorders, cancer and more. We could not pursue this without our research and development team.

Postdoctoral scientists help us continue this pursuit. During your experience you will get:

  • Top industry research experience

  • Mentoring by some of Lilly’s top scientists

  • Laboratory and classroom training and education to further your development

  • Collaboration and networking across dozens of postdoctoral scientists and other researchers
