Postdoctoral Position Available: Autoimmunity and Immunologic Mechanisms
Research opportunities are available in cellular and molecular immunology; genetic organization and variation of immune response genes; structure and function of immunoglobulins; transgenic models of immune function; host responses to infectious agents; transplantation immunology; and neuroimmunology.
The primary emphasis of the program is the unraveling of pathogenetic mechanisms operative in diseases of immune etiology. Mentors involved in both their own research programs and in the care of patients with autoimmune and immune-mediate inflammatory diseases provide an opportunity for translational work between basic and applied immunology. Opportunities in human biology and disease are available in autoimmune and immune-mediated inflammatory diseases, immunodeficiencies, malignant diseases, host-defense defense including vaccine development, and transplantation immunology. Outstanding investigator-based and core-based facilities are available. Resources include state-of-the-art high-speed flow cytometry, high resolution imaging (confocal, FRET, standard and cryo-electron microscopy), nucleic acid and protein sequencing, hybridoma/phage display antibody production, and transgenic/ES cell mouse facilities.
