A post-doctoral position is 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 mouse models.

Candidates must hold a recent doctoral degree or equivalent. Previous experience in mucosal immunity, autoimmunity and/or inflammation is preferred. Minorities and women are especially encouraged to apply in order to address significant gender and racial/ethnic gaps in the nation’s biomedical research workforce.
