Postdoctoral position in Mucosal Immunology and Autoimmunity

Medical University of South Carolina.

Mentor: Dr. Chenthamarakshan Vasu

Position available to study the role of gut mucosa-microbiota interaction in autoimmunity. Project involves studies using human samples and rodent models to understand the impacts of innate immune-receptor and dietary-factor interactions with gut microbiota on immune regulation, inflammation and autoimmune onset, and therapeutic manipulation of these interactions. Studies will involve use of conventional and high-throughput proteomics and metabolomics using samples from human subjects, and development and use of genetically modified and germ-free murine models. Candidates must hold a recent doctoral degree or equivalent and be a current U.S. resident. Previous experience in mucosal immunity, autoimmunity and/or inflammation is preferred.

MUSC is located in the beautiful historic district of Charleston bounded by the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful beaches to the east, and national forests and wildlife refuges to the north and south. MUSC is the state’s top-ranked medical center.
