Postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Jakubzick Lab, located in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, Hanover, New Hampshire. The overall focus of the Jakubzick research group is the role of mononuclear phagocytes in health and disease. Currently, there are three main projects requiring extensive investigation: 1) the role of interstitial macrophages and the nervous system, 2) the role of natural antibody-producing B cells in cancer and autoimmunity, and 3) the role of monocyte-derived dendritic cells in regulating conventional dendritic cells. The lab invites highly motivated, independent research scientists who want advanced training in myeloid cell biology to apply. Our lab and the department are fully equipped with all the tools and research technologies to complete any defined project. Please visit www.geiselmed.dartmouth.edu/jakubzick for more information on our lab and research group.
The successful postdoctoral fellow must:
- Hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent), preferably in immunology or cellular biology.
- Have strong work ethic, ambition, and the ability to drive a project, and must work well independently, as a member of our research team, and with mentorship and supervision by the PI.
- Have extensive experience working with animal models and experimental methodologies relating to cellular immunology and molecular biology.
- Have experience with scRNAseq technology and have a basic working knowledge of R, DESeq2, and Seurat.
Salary will be commensurate with experience based on NIH guidelines.
Qualified applicants are asked to send a cover letter detailing research interests, CV, and the name and contact information for three references to the PI:
