This postdoctoral fellow will investigate the role of novel genes in the regulation of innate lymphoid cells (ILC) and other immune cells. This person will evaluate the expression of these genes in the immune cells in response to stimulation and in diseased tissues. He/She will also develop assays to assess the function of these genes using recombinant proteins or RNAi knockdown technology. The signaling mechanism regulated by these genes will be investigated.
In addition, the potential role of these genes in the disease will be evaluated using human diseased samples and mouse models. This person will have opportunities to collaborate with both internal and external groups. Experience and track record of publication in Immunology especially in the ILC or innate immunity area is a strong plus. Ability to design, perform and analyze experiments as described above. Strong ability to write and publish paper in a timely fashion. Ability to collaborate with other people. Good communication skills.
Education & Experience:
PhD. in Immunology, Molecular/Cell Biology, Biochemistry, or other related Biology area.
Experience in designing and performing immunology studies such as isolation of immune cells and familiarity with FACS technology is preferred. A proven publication record is desirable.
Technical Skills Requirements:
Skilled in Immunology, Cellular/Molecular Biology and Biochemistry techniques
Knowledge in immunology, signaling transduction, and a proven publication record is desirable.
Experience in in vitro immunology and in vivo models desirable.
