Postdoctoral Positions in Infant T cell Immunology
The Feeney Laboratory at UCSF is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral research fellows to investigate the immune response to infectious pathogens in the fetus and infant, including malaria and CMV. The successful candidate(s) will have a range of opportunities to contribute to NIH-funded human immunology research based on established international collaborations, leveraging large, established sample banks of human specimens (PBMC, cord blood, placental tissue, and plasma). Envisioned projects will make use functional assays as well as newer high-parameter approaches such as mass/spectral cytometry, scRNAseq, TCRseq, and computational biology. Many opportunities for training in bioinformatic analysis techniques.
The mission of the Division of Experimental Medicine is to understand the human immune system so that lifesaving therapies and vaccines can be developed to protect against chronic infectious diseases of global importance, and to establish a training environment that fosters patient-oriented research in the U.S. and abroad.
Candidates should possess a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and have a strong background in immunology or infectious disease research. Experience with flow cytometry, RNAseq, and/or bioinformatics is desirable. Excellent communication, writing, and collaboration skills are essential. Our laboratory greatly values diversity and candidates from historically disadvantaged groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and 3 references to Dr. Maggie Feeney, Professor, Division of Experimental Medicine, UCSF (Margaret.firstname.lastname@example.org).
