We welcome applications for a postdoctoral fellow position at University of Colorado Boulder to study the molecular mechanisms of metabolism, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. The postdoctoral fellow will join a highly collaborative and supportive group to study: 1) how the glucose transporter GLUT4 is regulated by insulin signaling, and 2) how extracellular vesicles (such as exosomes) modulate GLUT4 function in adipocytes. Our group uses a broad range of approaches such as CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing, CRISPR genetic screens, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), high-resolution imaging, and transgenic animals. The postdoctoral fellow will receive comprehensive medical, dental and retirement benefits. The university sponsors H1 or J1 visa for international scholars. University of Colorado Boulder is one of the top comprehensive research universities in the United States (with four Nobel Laureates on current faculty), and ranks top 12 in federal funding. Located at the footsteps of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is ranked as one of the best places to live in U.S., offering outstanding outdoor activities such as skiing, biking, and mountain hiking.
Requirements: A Ph.D. degree (or expected) in biological sciences or related disciplines is required. Basic skills in molecular and cell biology are preferred. Priority will be given to applicants with one or more first-author publications.
