The laboratory seeks a postdoctoral fellow to participate in our research program on regulatory T cells’ role in promoting acute lung injury resolution. We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral fellow to join our lab. This is an NIH-funded postdoctoral position. The successful candidate will gain experience in several immunologic, transcriptomic, and proteomic analyses. These projects will also provide the necessary training and expertise to translate into future research projects for ambitious and motivated scientists with aspirations for their independent research careers.
In addition to research, the postdoctoral fellow will be actively involved with writing scientific papers and presenting talks at scientific meetings. The expectation will be that this person develops expertise in host defense and immune responses in the lungs. The postdoctoral fellow will have the potential to be supported by a T32 Training Grant and join a cohort of trainees who meet regularly to share their research findings and learn about new immunology and acute lung injury topics.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in Immunology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, or a related field. Ideal candidates will have a solid understanding of basic immunology and practical experience with mouse models of disease.
Experience with flow cytometry, functional genomics experiments such as ChIP-Seq, RNA-seq, or ATAC-seq desired. Candidates should also have strong communication and analytical skills.
