The Long lab at Stanford University is seeking candidates for a fully funded postdoctoral research fellowship in molecular metabolism. We are jointly affiliated with the Stanford ChEM-H Institute and the Stanford School of Medicine Department of Pathology. We are a highly multidisciplinary group that studies tissue crosstalk and endocrine signaling pathways. We combine metabolomic and proteomic technologies with classical biochemical and genetic approaches in cell and animal models. Our molecular and mechanistic efforts are complemented by an extensive array of clinical collaborations at Stanford and elsewhere. Our goal is to uncover the fundamental signaling pathways that control mammalian energy metabolism. In the long term, we hope to translate these discoveries into therapeutic opportunities that matter for metabolic and other age-associated chronic diseases. Examples of our recent work include PMID 33199915, 33219098, 32402239, 27374330, 24906147. More about the lab can be found at, or on Twitter @longlabstanford. 
Doing great science requires a great team. That's why, as part of our mission, we recruit passionate individuals from diverse scientific backgrounds and empower them to realize their full potential both here at Stanford and beyond. We are committed to diversity and inclusion. If you have an enthusiasm for discovery and enjoy working in a dynamic environment, the Long Lab may be an ideal setting for you. Postdoctoral fellows will receive a renewable, annual contract with the expectation of a total of 2-5 years of training.

Required Qualifications: 
  • Doctoral degree
  • A background in biological or chemical sciences (defined broadly)
  • A strong publication record
  • An interest in using cutting-edge technologies to solve major outstanding questions related to mammalian energy metabolism
Required Application Materials: 

(1) a 1-page cover letter describing research experience, research interest, short- and long-term goals, and preferred start date;
(2) a CV with complete list of publications and manuscripts submitted; and
(3) contact information for three references.
