Postdoctoral Fellow, Metabolic Disease Discovery Biology
Postdoctoral Fellow, Metabolic Disease Discovery Biology

Job Code: SJ05-021


We are currently seeking a highly motivated and independent postdoctoral fellow interested in studying novel molecular mechanisms of metabolic disease.  The project will include using GNF technologies to identify novel secreted proteins/peptides from innovative mouse models of obesity and insulin resistance.   Major aspects of this postdoctoral project will include the generation and analyses of ‘omics’ data including peptidomics, RNAseq, and microarray data.  Additional aspects will be considered depending on the interests and expertise of the successful candidate.

This postdoctoral researcher will collaborate with leading pharmaceutical discovery scientists pursuing multi-disciplinary research projects.  Together, they apply their expertise to discovering new medicines that will help patients lead healthier lives. 

This is an exciting opportunity to perform academic-oriented research in an industrial setting.  The individual will have the opportunity to participate as a team member within a scientific group and interact with scientists from other areas in GNF/Novartis as well as external collaborators.  The work carried out by this individual is expected to lead to high quality publications in peer reviewed journals.   The project will require active collaboration with an academic investigator from the Salk Institute throughout the course of the fellowship.

•Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D degree with a strong background in applying ‘omics’ profiling to in vivo models of disease (demonstrated by strong publication history in peer-reviewed journals).
•Significant experience generating and analyzing ‘omics’ data (e.g. peptidomics, microarray and RNA-seq data)
•The ideal candidate will have both in vivo and in vitro skills
•Excellent written and oral communication skills

Interested candidates please send a copy of your CV including publication record, and three references to the email address listed below.
