NIH-funded Postdoctoral Fellow
Postdoctoral Position in T regulatory cells, Autoimmunity, and Microbiome
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is currently available immediately to study cellular and molecular mechanisms governing the differentiation and function of CD4 T lymphocytes and their role in immunity and tolerance—with a particular focus on autoimmunity.
The applicant must have recently completed a PhD or equivalent in Immunology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics, or a related field. The ideal candidate will be highly motivated and have expertise in flow cytometry, cell culture, molecular biology, and mouse handling. Cytokine signaling, epigenetic mechanisms of gene regulation, protein-protein interactions, and sequencing would be highly beneficial. The research goal is to identify mechanisms underlying transforming gowth factor-b (TGF-b) and aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR)-mediated regulation of T cell tolerance and autoimmunity. Expertise in bioinformatics is a plus.
The successful candidate will be joining a young, dynamic environment within the Center for Cellular and Molecular Immunology at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
Interested applicants should e-mail a cover letter, CV, summary of previous research experience, and three letters of references.
