One of the important questions in immunology is how immune effector cells acquire the ability to express a set of genes that enable them to carry out specialized immune functions. Our lab studies transcriptional and epigenetic 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. Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. degree in molecular immunology or molecular biology.  Experience with, such as molecular cloning, Next Generation Sequencing, CRISPR, shRNA knockdown, ChIP, western blot, is highly desired.  Please send curriculum vitae and three references to:
