Current Career Opportunities in the Ingelsson Lab

Postdoctoral Position in Functional Genomics of Insulin Resistance

The Ingelsson laboratory focuses on understanding of the genetic architecture underlying insulin resistance, obesity, and related conditions. We are currently doing functional follow-up studies to validate causal candidates of insulin resistance, to characterize molecular mechanisms, and for discovery of new therapeutic targets. We employ a range of methodologies including CRISPR-based pooled gene perturbations, single-cell RNA sequencing, in vitro studies of adipocytes, skeletal myocytes and hepatocytes, and murine models of metabolic disease.

We are seeking excellent and motivated postdoctoral fellows to join our team. The ideal candidate has a strong background in molecular and/or cell biology, and experience with in vitro or in vivo studies of cardiometabolic diseases.

The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and the Stanford University School of Medicine provide superlative training opportunities at the post-doctoral level in a highly stimulating and interactive environment. We work in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment with a long tradition of world-leading insulin resistance-related research. Our projects routinely involve several labs (such as the Quertermous and Knowles labs) within the division and at the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute and Stanford Diabetes Research Center.
