Postdoctoral Position in T regulatory cells, Autoimmunity, and Microbiome

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is currently available immediately to study the influence of the environment on the cellular and molecular mechanisms governing the differentiation and function of CD4 T lymphocytes and their role in immunity and tolerance.

The applicant must have recently completed a PhD or equivalent in Immunology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics, or a related field.  The ideal candidate will have expertise in flow cytometry, cell culture, molecular biology, mouse handling, cytokine signaling and epigenetic mechanisms of gene regulation as well as an interest in protein-protein interactions and the mechanisms underlying TGF-b and AhR-mediated regulation of T cell tolerance and autoimmunity. Expertise in bioinformatics is a plus.

The successful candidate will be joining a young, dynamic environment within the Center for Cellular and Molecular Immunology at the University of Missouri in Columbia.

Interested applicants should e-mail a cover letter, CV, summary of previous research experience, and three letters of references.
