Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Immunology
The Kenter laboratory is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to analyze molecular and epigenetic mechanisms regulating humoral immunity (see Montefiori et al, Cell Rep 14:896). Current NIH funded projects focus on the interface of chromatin conformation, gene expression and the functional implications of these events on immunoglobulin repertoire development and humoral immunity. Preference will be given to applicants with strong experience in at least one of the following areas: lymphocyte biology, chromatin structure, computational biology and bioinformatics of gene expression. Candidates must have strong genetic and molecular/cell biology skills, preferably with some experience in con-focal imaging and/or FACS sorting. Excellent communication skills are essential.
Duties and Qualifications:
Highly motivated candidates holding a recent PhD or MD/PhD degree in immunology, molecular biology and/or biochemistry are encouraged to apply. Candidates with strong records of scientific accomplishment and excellent communication skills are preferred. Highly competitive salary and benefits are available and will be commensurate with experience and NIH scale. A CV, research summary and the names of two/three references via email to: Dr. A. Kenter, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Illinois College of Medicine, Chicago; firstname.lastname@example.org .
University of Illinois College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
