Postdoctoral Research Associate
Queen Mary University of London Applications are invited for an MRC-funded Postdoctoral Research Associate post within the William Harvey Research Institute at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). The position is within the Centre for Microvascular Research, an internationally respected hub of vascular and inflammation research. The appointed researcher will work on a project aimed at investigating novel genes involved in immune cell extravasation from blood vessels to sites of inflammation. The successful candidate will be part of a new collaborative team of researchers based at University of Bristol (led by Dr Helen Weavers and Professor Paul Martin) and QMUL (led by Professor Sussan Nourshargh). The Bristol team will utilise genetic screening opportunities in Drosophila, and a new pupal vein model (Thuma et al, J. Cell Biol, 217, 3045; 2018), to identify and characterise novel players in this process. In parallel, at QMUL we will aim to undertake complementary analysis of identified novel genes using murine models of inflammation, including live imaging methods (e.g. Girbl et al., Immunity, 49, 1062; 2018). Extended collaboratively to human studies using in vitro models and Population Health approaches, we will link the findings of the project to relevant human physiological and pathological scenarios.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
University of Virginia The Arandjelovic lab in the Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology & Center for Immunity, Inflammation & Regenerative Medicine at the University of Virginia is seeking a post-doctoral Research Associate to join the team studying cell clearance/phagocytosis in inflammation, with focus on arthritis models. Apoptotic cells are frequently observed at sites of ongoing inflammation, and inefficient clearance of apoptotic cells can lead to secondary necrosis and the release of their cellular contents, which can further fuel the inflammatory process. However, the nature of dying cells, the cellular identity of phagocytes and the molecular events that contribute to clearance of apoptotic cells have been understudied in many inflammatory diseases, including arthritis. In other words, “who” are the cleaning crew and which “tools” are they using? In the Arandjelovic lab, we focus on addressing the following questions: 1. Who are the phagocytes in the healthy and inflamed joints? 2. What are they “eating” (infiltrating leukocytes, tissue resident cells)? 3. Does modulation of cell clearance pathways impact disease parameters? These studies will identify new modulators of inflammatory and autoimmune disease and uncover novel pathways that can be targeted for therapeutic benefit. To apply please visit UVA job board https://uva.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/UVAJobs, and search for "R0017700". Complete the application and see below for documents to attach. Please note that multiple documents can be uploaded in the CV/Resume box. Required Application Materials: CV, Cover Letter, and Contact information for 3 references.
Postdoc in neutrophil recruitment during inflammatory diseases using advanced microscopy
UConn Health Our laboratory is looking for motivated postdoctoral fellows to study integrin activation and leukocyte trafficking in inflammatory diseases using advanced microscopy, such as super-resolution microscopy, high-resolution live-cell imaging, and intravital microscopy. We work on primary human leukocytes, leukocyte-like cell lines, and gene-edited mice to answer questions regarding integrin activation and leukocyte trafficking. Multiple advanced microscopy, from single-molecular level super-resolution microscopy to physiological-relevant intravital microscopy, will be used. The PI is a faculty member of the Department of Immunology at UConn Health (https://health.uconn.edu/immunology/). This is an exciting research environment to cultivate new research ideas and opportunities. The PI has received an R01 award from NIH and a startup fund to support our research. The candidate will receive excellent guidance on scientific research as well as career development (grants, awards, conferences, etc.). Qualified applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Cell Biology, Immunology, Biomedical Engineering, Cardiology, or in a related field, and have a strong record of publications. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in gene-editing in cells or mice, live-cell imaging, super-resolution imaging, or intravital imaging. People with inflammatory disease models in mice are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send their CV, representative publications, and names of three references to Dr. Zhichao Fan (firstname.lastname@example.org). UConn Health is an affirmative action employer, in addition to an EEO and M/F/V/PWD/PV employer.
Harvard Medical School Fully funded postdoctoral position to study neutrophil heterogeneity related to immune-mediated diseases in human and mouse, in lab of Peter Nigrovic, Chief, Division of Immunology, Boston Children‘s Hospital.
Senior Director, Research
Insmed The candidate will oversee the development of the brensocatib program within Research. Brensocatib is a DPP1 inhibitor currently in Phase 3 clinical trials in non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis and in Phase 2 trials in cystic fibrosis and an investigator-sponsored trial in treating COVID-19. The candidate will be specifically responsible for the investigation of the biological mechanisms of action specific to brensocatib as well as in vivo studies to understand translation to clinical indications. The ideal candidate would have a deep understanding of DPP1 inhibition, and the downstream effects on neutrophils, mast cells, cytotoxic T cells and NETosis with respect to disease modification. While brensocatib is the first and most important product, these studies may lead to the development of a portfolio of immunomodulators and this person will oversee their development.
This is a supervisory position and the new hire will directly supervise two Associate Director level people who in turn supervise two laboratory-based employees. We may also hire additional scientist level positions reporting to the existing Associate Director level people.
