Open postdoctoral position, faculty mentor Ulrike Klueh


An NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow position is immediately available for an early career scientist in the Klueh laboratory located at the Integrative Biosciences Center (IBio) within Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.

The laboratory’s focus is to identify the root causes underlying suboptimal insulin infusion pump sets’ performance. In addition, investigations will be conducted into their associated skin pathologies including device insertion site injury, device material composition, drug delivery preservatives and adhesives. As the focus is on a drug delivery system, the candidate must have excellent training and recent research experience in protein analysis and molecular/cellular biology or a closely related discipline.

The research focus spans several disciplines from commercial insulin evaluation, biomaterial characterization to pathology and immunology, there are also opportunities to develop independent projects aligning with the broad goals of the Klueh laboratory, a multi-disciplinary team who also frequently collaborate with industry and clinical partners. Candidates will have the opportunity to be involved in pre-clinical porcine studies to evaluate insulin infusion site failures or other diabetes management devices, (e.g. continuous glucose monitors), if desired. Recent graduates and postdoctoral fellows in the Klueh laboratory have successfully acquired desirable positions in industry and academia.

Required qualifications

  • A recent Ph.D. or MD/Ph.D. degree in pharmaceutical sciences, pharmacology, molecular biology and/or immunology.
  • Two years or less of postdoctoral experience.

Required application materials

Send a cover letter with a brief description of research experiences and interest in the Klueh laboratory research, CV, and contact information for three references as a single PDF file to Dr. Ulrike Klueh at
