Post-doctoral Research Position

Position Summary

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position on environmental influences on immune stem and progenitor cells is available in the Department of Environmental Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry. The lab focuses on discerning how environmental factors shape the development and function of the immune system. Research in this postdoctoral position will examine how a transcriptional regulator called the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) controls hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) proliferation, quiescence, and the generation of lineage committed progeny. Dedicated individuals with an inquiring mind and a background in immunology, stem cell biology, or biochemical toxicology are encouraged to apply. Experience with cellular and molecular biology, mouse genetics, imaging analyses, and/or epigenetics is preferred.

Required Qualifications

  • Successful candidates will have a PhD and strong track record of biomedical research accomplishments and promise, and a demonstrated ability to publish and present data
  • Excellent communication skills and fluency in written and spoken English
  • PhD (or PhD combined with MD or DVM)

Special Skills Desired

  • Prior hands-on experience in flow cytometry or imaging analyses, use of experimental animal models, and/or analyzing genome-wide datasets
  • Understanding of hematopoiesis and/or studying how micro-environmental cues influence stem and progenitor cells
  • Prior experience using JMP, R, or other statistical software

How To Apply

Send (1) a one page cover letter that briefly describes your research experience and your motivation to apply; (2) your current CV; and (3) names and contact information for three professional references to paige_lawrence@urmc.rochester.edu
