Postdoctoral Research Fellow: Autoimmunity & Microbial Pathobionts
A postdoctoral position is available for an ambitious and productive applicant to investigate the biology and metabolomics of microbial commensals that may contribute to autoimmune pathogenesis. Working in a collaborative and cross-displinary team, this position will function under the supervision of Dr. Gregg Silverman, with interactions with other physicians and scientists at NYU School of Medicine. We apply advanced genomics techniques, murine models and studies of human biospecimens to identify molecular mechanisms responsible for human inflammatory and autoimmune disease. Join our team to enjoy a multidisciplinary basic and translational research approach, and an outstanding academic environment that fosters excellence, personal growth, and career development. There will be many opportunities to advance our understanding of the drivers of disease, and to contribute to testing for early diagnosis and potentially to more effective and safer treatments.
The successful candidate will have a PhD degree in microbiology, microbial genetics, immunology or a related discipline, and a strong scientific background apparent from a robust publication record. Previous experience in wet lab and studies of microbial genomics are highly desirable. Practical experience in coding and computational analyses of large data bases is preferred.
