Two post-doctoral positions are currently available in our laboratory, dedicated to investigating immuno-regulatory pathways that exert control over innate and adaptive immune responses implicated in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases, asthma, and lung inflammation. This role is centered around elucidating the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved, utilizing cutting-edge molecular technologies such as cellular metabolomics and genomics in conjunction with traditional cell and molecular biology approaches. For further insights, please see our recent publications, as listed below:

Cell Rep. 2019; 29:4509-4524,  Nat Commun. 2021 May 5;12(1):2526,  Nat Commun. 2022 Aug 31;13(1):5118.,  J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2022 May;149(5):1628-1642, Nat Commun. 2022 Mar 17;13(1):1440,  J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2023 Feb;151(2):526-538,  Nat Commun. 2023 Sep 26;14(1):5989,  Cell Rep. 2023 Aug 29;42(8):112990.

We are actively seeking highly motivated and collaborative individuals who can engage in independent reasoning and are enthusiastic about acquiring new technologies. Ideal candidates should possess excellent writing and communication skills and be proficient in techniques such as multi-color flow cytometry, cell isolation, tissue culture, ELISA, RT-PCR, animal handling, and preferably, the measurement of airway hyperreactivity. Please note that this position is exclusively available to recent graduates with a PhD or those who anticipate graduating from a PhD program in the near future. Additionally, applicants should have authored at least one or two immune-related articles, with a preference for those related to immunology and inflammation.

Our laboratory is situated within the newly constructed Norris Research Tower at the Keck School of Medicine, providing full-time access to outstanding facilities within the department and the University. Our lab is equipped with state-of-the-art research facilities and equipment, including few flow cytometry analyzers, FACS and magnetic sorters, and confocal microscopy.
