Postdoctoral Position in Immunobiology of Infectious Disease

A postdoctoral position is available immediately at the Department of Pulmonary Immunology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, to work with Dr. Buka Samten. This research is aimed at understanding the immune responses of T cells against Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection at host-pathogen interaction. Our work has been published in the Journal of Immunology, 2009, 182:3668-3677; 2012, 189:3092-3103, the Journal of Biological Chemistry, 2011, 286:24508-24518; 2013, 288:25500-25511, and Scientific Reports 2017, 7:40984. This project will utilize cellular and molecular biological techniques to examine the effect of secreted proteins of Mycobacterium tuberculosis on immune cells using human and mouse experimental systems. The successful candidate will join a group of investigators who study different aspects of the immune responses to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection as well as viral infections, including the role of T cells, NK cells, and Tregs. Applicants must have a strong background in cellular or molecular immunology. Please send CV to Dr. Buka Samten, Pulmonary Immunology, UT Health Science Center at Tyler, 11937 U.S. Highway 271, Tyler, Texas 75708-3154, or
