Postdoctoral scholar 

A postdoctoral scholar position to study human neuroinflammation is available at the laboratory of Prof. Elizabeth Mellins at Stanford University School of Medicine. The candidate should have experience with genomic techniques such as ATAC-seq and RNA-seq. The candidate will have the opportunity to learn multidisciplinary approaches to study potential interactions between the immune and neurological systems.

The project is focused on understanding the contribution of immune dysregulation to the etiology of pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric (PANS) patients. PANS is a sudden, overnight development of severe psychiatric symptoms such as obsessive, compulsive disorder (OCD) or anxiety, that often, but not always, is associated with a documented Group A streptococcal infection.

We are seeking an independent, self-motivated and enthusiastic candidate with a recent PhD in a relevant field (immunology, molecular biology or related). In addition to familiarity with genomic techniques, experience in sterile tissue culture techniques and flow cytometry are preferred. Basic statistical knowledge is highly desirable.

To apply, please send a CV and a brief statement on why you would be a good candidate for this position to Claudia Macaubas at macaubas@stanford.edu. Three (3) letters of reference will be requested from selected candidates after a Skype interview.
