Post Doctoral Position - Examine The role of B Cells, The Microbiome & Mucosal Immunity
A postdoctoral position is available in the Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology Division of the Department of Medicine at the University of Rochester. We are particularly interested in a postdoctoral candidate with research experience in flow cytometry and molecular biology. The research project will focus on the role of B cells, the microbiome, and mucosal immunity with the long term goal of developing strategies to prevent allergic and autoimmune disease. This project will compare samples from Old Order Mennonites, a group with very low rates of allergic disease, and Rochesterians. The project will involve studies of peripheral blood plasmablasts and stem cells as a function of gut microbome. This position is available immediately.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual who wants to influence his/her own development and is flexible, proactive, creative, detail-oriented, and has top teamwork competency but can also work highly independent.
A strong candidate will have
MD or PhD in Immunology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology or related disciplines
prior experience in flow cytometry and molecular biology
proven ability to present and publish research data
excellent inter-personal and communication skills / ability to build good working relations
proficiency in spoken and written English.
