Postdoctoral Research Position: Host-Pathogen Interactions / Inflammation / Immunity

Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine

 

Research Description:

A postdoctoral research position is available for a highly-motivated candidate to investigate IL-36 function and signal transduction in the context of wound healing, innate and adaptive immunity, auto-inflammatory diseases and cancer. Experimental models will include in vitro assays, tissue culture and knockout/transgenic mice. The study aims to: 1) identify novel cellular pathways and microbial immune evasion strategies, and 2) determine how these processes maintain homeostasis and cause human diseases when dysregulated.

US citizens and green card holders may qualify for a T32 National Research Service Award at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Requirements:

  • A recent Ph.D. in Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular, and/or Cell Biology.
  • Peer-reviewed publications in the field(s) of Immunology, Microbiology, and/or Signal Transduction.
  • Experience with molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, signal transduction, cell culture methods, and/or mouse models of disease. 
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English.
  • Must be willing and able to handle mice and infectious materials.

The position will remain open until a suitable candidate is identified.
