The Laboratory of Dr. Suneil Koliwad, which is part of the UCSF Diabetes Center and the Division of Endocrinology at UCSF, is searching for a postdoctoral scholar to study the role of microglia and other specific myeloid cell populations in regulating hypothalamic function, energy metabolism, glucose homeostasis, and adaptation to advancing age. The successful candidate will be engaged in research focused on a variety of topics, including immuno-phenotyping, transcriptomics, in vivo studies, and cell-cell crosstalk, using cutting-edge tools.  The Koliwad lab has been productive in advancing knowledge regarding the role of microglia in metabolic control, and the incoming postdoctoral scholar would be deeply involved in building on these efforts.

This location offers tremendous resources, both technical and conceptual, and opportunities for mentorship, skill-building, and gaining expertise.
