An excellent postdoctoral research opportunity is immediately available in the laboratory of Woong-Ki Kim at the Tulane National Primate Research Center to explore macrophage biology and to develop macrophage-targeted therapy for the treatment of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND), Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, and diabetes. We are seeking a highly motivated Research Scholar who wants to pursue an academic career in neuroimmunology and macrophage biology. The laboratory uses non-human primate (NHP) models to connect mouse investigations and human observations of many chronic inflammatory diseases.


The postdoctoral fellow positions will manage NIH-funded studies that are exploring the role of macrophages in HAND and brain aging. Open research opportunities also include the investigation of the therapeutic potential of macrophage-targeted approaches in the translational NHP models of diabetes and obesity. All these projects are supported by high collaborative, multidisciplinary teams of scientists and extensive core services.
