Gene Regulation in Immunology

‚ÄčOne of the important questions in immunology is how immune effector cells acquire the ability to express a set of genes whose products confer them with the specialized immune functions.  Our lab studies the signaling and transcriptional regulation of the expression of genes important in the normal and diseased immune system (Immunity, 2013, 39: 97-110; JI, 2015, 194: 4328-38; J Allergy Clin Immunol, 2018; 10.1016/j.jaci.2017.10.043).

We are seeking a Postdoctoral/Research Associate to study how master transcription factors regulate the set of genes during differentiation of progenitors/precursors into immune effector cells and how immune genes in the differentiated effector cells detect signal inputs triggered by extracellular immunological stimuli and convert them into transcriptional outputs.

The ideal candidate will display:

  • A recent Ph.D. degree in Immunology and/or Molecular Biology
  • Genetic and molecular techniques and analysis related to: Next Generation Sequencing, ChIP, molecular cloning, CRISPR, shRNA knockdown, Immune Precipitation, Western Blot, Flow Cytometry.
