The Madala Lab is seeking a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral fellow to study allergic asthma using advanced biochemical methods, and pre-clinical asthma models. The research themes of the lab are to understand novel mechanisms and druggable molecules involved in allergic asthma and fibrosis using a combination of biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, flow cytometry, genomics, preclinical mouse models, and human tissue samples. The laboratory has identified several growth factors, cytokines, and transcription factors involved in allergic asthma and fibrotic lung diseases.
Successful candidates will hold a Ph.D. and /or MD with 0-3 years postdoctoral experience. The candidate should be motivated and enthusiastic, with a keen problem-solving ability and rigorous research. Experience in immune cell activation assays, multi-color flow cytometry, cell culture techniques, and handling of animals is strongly desired. Candidates with a strong background in immunology and/or biochemistry are encouraged to apply. The qualified candidate will have experience in a wide range of molecular and cellular biology techniques, including characterization of protein-protein interactions as well as experience in cellular experiments (tissue culture, IP western, and siRNA) using primary cells.
