Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
An exciting Post-doctoral Research Fellowship opportunity to work and train in a basic science/translational immunology laboratory focused on innate immunity/macrophages and their roles in cancer and lung diseases including asthma and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We are looking to understand the molecular mechanisms of macrophage responses in cancer and lung inflammation and design new ways to alter macrophage function. A molecular and cellular biology/biochemistry approach in primary human (patient) samples and mouse models will be used for studies of signal transduction, immunology, and inflammation. We are well funded and have exciting new projects in cellular immunotherapy and nanobiology beginning!
The candidate must be a recent (within the last 2 years) Ph.D. in Basic Science/Immunology.
A strong background in immunology and multicolor (8-color +) FACS expertise is a requirement. Previous bench laboratory experience in immunology with strong in vitro skills (mammalian cell culture, si/shRNA, ChIP, epigenetics, signaling, nanoparticles, etc.); at least two peer-reviewed publications, must be highly motivated, productive and energetic.
Up to three years fellowship offered (salary: DoD and NIH stipend); renewal dependent on annual success.
U.S. citizens/Green Card holders preferred.
