NIH Funded Postdoctoral Position in Lawrence Lab

Position summary

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. B. Paige Lawrence in the Department of Environmental Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry. We study how environmental factors shape the development and function of the immune system.

Dedicated individuals with an inquiring mind and a background in immunology, stem cell biology, pharmacology, or toxicology are encouraged to apply. Experience with cellular and molecular biology, stem cell biology, mouse genetics, imaging analyses, and/or epigenetics is preferred.
