NIH-supported Postdoctoral Fellow Positions in Leukocyte Biology and Immunology at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine (UConn Health)
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. Prevalence 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.
NIH funded Postdoctoral position in host-pathogen interactions
University at Buffalo, SUNY A postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately to study molecular interactions between Treponema species and the human host. Spirochetes are a diverse group of bacteria responsible for many important health conditions including periodontal disease, syphilis, Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases. The Visser lab studies how spirochete outer membrane proteins and outer membrane vesicles from various Treponema species modulate inflammation and cellular response during disease as well as the connection with systemic conditions such as atherosclerosis and neurological impairment. Much of the work in the Visser lab focuses on how these virulence factors and their active epitopes modulate neutrophil response. Ongoing projects include understanding the role of differential neutrophil cytokine response, extracellular matrix remodeling, aortic and brain endothelial responses due to oral Treponema infection. The Visser lab uses a multi-disciplinary approach comprising microbiological, molecular biology, cell biology, immunological and microscopy techniques along with animal models.
This fellowship position is NIH supported and the Department of Oral Biology is also the recipient of an NIDCR Institutional T32 Training Grant (“Advanced Training in Oral Biology”) providing multi-year support for postdoctoral trainees (USA citizens and Permanent Residents).
The Buffalo-Niagara region is a metropolitan area with a diverse community, affordable living and many activities. University at Buffalo is a premier public research university among the top 40 public universities in the nation. The Department of Oral Biology was established in 1963 and has a rich history of research training, grant funding and support for trainees. See the Department of Oral Biology website for more information (http://dental.buffalo.edu/departments/oral-biology/research/research-areas.html) Interested applicants (US citizens or residents) please contact email@example.com
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Brigham and Women’s Hospital; Harvard Medical School Postdoctoral position is available immediately to study how microbiome regulates innate immunity to pathogens. The candidate should have background in Immunology or microbiology and have interest in applying system biology approaches such as proteomics or transcriptomics analysis. Candidates with computer science background are also welcomed. The candidate should have earned their graduate degree in 2016 or after. Evidence for productivity such as research papers are required. The position is for 1 year with possible extension upon favorable performance.
Post-doctoral Research Associate
University of Pittsburgh This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated and hard-working post doctoral researcher to jointly work in the labs of Dr. Melanie J. Scott and Dr. Matthew Neal at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Surgery. We are looking for an individual who is team-oriented and has excellent interpersonal and problem solving skills to work on NIH funded studies investigating mechanisms of innate immunity in models of trauma, sepsis and acute lung injury associated with sickle cell disease. The primary focus of the work is to investigate mechanisms of activation of inflammasomes (with an emphasis in platelets), mechanisms of liver and lung damage, hypoxia/reoxia injury, and thrombosis and coagulation.
Candidates should possess a PhD or MD/PhD in molecular biology, cell biology, immunology or related field and have a demonstrated record of success including peer reviewed publications. Candidates should have experience in small animal research, in vitro cell culture, and extensive knowledge of molecular biology, cell biology and biochemistry techniques. To apply please submit a CV with contact information, a concert letter stating how or program complements your research interests, experience and future plans. please also provide contact details for 3 referees.
Post-doctoral fellow opening
Massachusetts General Hospital Multiple Postdoctoral fellowship positions are available to join the Mucosal Immunology &
Biology Research Center within the Pediatrics Department at Massachusetts General Hospital / Harvard Medical School. We seek highly motivated energetic individuals that exhibit excellent communication skills as well as both the ability to work independently and as part of a collaborative group. Our multidisciplinary team explores interactions of respiratory pathogens with the airway mucosa of humans and mice and how these interactions elicit innate immune cell recruitment and impact infectious and inflammatory processes. We welcome
applicants holding a Ph.D. in any one of a variety of biomedical disciplines including cell
biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, bacterial genetics, and/or immunology. The
Mucosal Immunology & Biology Research Center is a dynamic research environment with over a dozen Principle Investigators that provides significant career development opportunities for postdoctoral fellows. Interested candidates please send a cover letter and C.V. by email to
(RSNOW2@MGH.HARVARD.EDU). Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School are equal opportunity employers and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected
