Postdoctoral Fellow: Transcriptional regulation of CD4 T helper and innate lymphoid cell subsets
Laboratory of Immune System Biology
Division of Intramural Research
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
A postdoctoral fellow position is immediately available in the Molecular and Cellular Immunoregulation Section (MCIS), Laboratory of Immune System Biology, NIAID. The MCIS aims to address heterogeneity and plasticity of CD4 T helper (Th) and innate lymphoid cell (ILC) subsets regulated by transcription factor complexes. We utilize multi-color “reporter,” conditional knockout, fate-mapping, and CRISPR/Cas9 murine models as well as RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and single cell technologies to study Th and ILC subsets in autoimmune, allergic, and infectious settings.
We are seeking a highly motivated and collaborative individual with a strong publication record, who is capable of independent reasoning and excited about learning new technologies. The candidate must have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree but less than five years postdoc experience. Preference will be given to candidates who have knowledge in immunology, in vivo animal models, single cell analysis or genome-wide analyses of gene expression, epigenetic modifications, and transcription factor binding using RNAseq and ChIPseq technologies. Previous experience in molecular and cellular biology is essential. The candidate should have excellent writing and communication skills. Underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
If you are interested, please send a short statement of your research goals, curriculum vitae, bibliography, and names and contact information of three references to Dr. Jeff Zhu jfZhu@niaid.nih.gov by June 10, 2018 or until the position is filled.
