Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham

A postdoctoral position in the UAB Division of Hematology/Oncology is immediately available to study lymphocyte development and members of a novel family of Fc receptor-like (FCRL) molecules. FCRLs possess tyrosine-based regulatory potential and are expressed by distinct populations of B cells and cytotoxic lymphocytes. Current work in the laboratory focuses on exploring their biological roles in human and mouse models as well as their importance in malignancies and autoimmune disorders.
