The lab of Professor Sergio D. Catz at the Department of Molecular Medicine, Scripps Research in La Jolla, California is seeking a dynamic, independent, and creative postdoctoral researcher to join his team. Under this NIH-funded postdoctoral research position you will work on the development of novel cell biology and immunology research to integrate high-resolution and cellular functional approaches together with high-throughput screening approaches to study molecular mechanisms regulating lysosomal disease, innate immunity, inflammation and infection. We are looking for highly motivated scientists to contribute to our research projects designed to study the crosstalk between vesicular trafficking, cellular function, and protein homeostasis in the context of inflammation, infection, and cardiovascular disease. The successful candidate will use a combination of molecular, cellular, genetic, and drug-discovery approaches and will be trained in state-of-the-art super-resolution microscopy techniques. Investigators will use genetically modified mouse models of disease and human immune cells that can be exploited for development of novel therapies.

Requirements: A Ph.D. in cellular biology/immunology/molecular biology or related fields is required. Technical proficiency in microscopy as well as in flow cytometry is preferred but not required. Strong organizational and effective communication skills are desired.

Organization: The research will take place in the Department of Molecular Medicine at The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California, which provides an outstanding research environment. Scripps Research is ranked the most influential institution in the world for its impact on scientific innovation. We expand basic knowledge in the biosciences and use these fundamental advances to create transformational new biomedical interventions that improve wellbeing. Our educational and training programs mold talented and committed students and postdocs into the next generation of cutting-edge scientists.  

Scripps is an equal opportunity employer. Qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or protected veteran status.

Application: Interested candidates should submit a CV along with the names and contact information of three references to: scatz@scripps.edu
