Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
The Department of Pediatrics at the Uniformed Services University, F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to study age-dependent development of respiratory mucosal immune responses against viral infections.
Work in our lab focuses on applying innovative flow cytometric and transcriptomic technologies in murine models and human systems to define functional and genetic markers of immune protection against respiratory pathogens with a focus on respiratory syncytial virus and influenza. Development of vaccines and drug therapies for young infants is often hampered by limited knowledge of the immune check points that induce protective immunity. The ultimate goal is to define unique immune regulation during early infancy that affects immune priming and can be targeted for intelligent design of mucosal vaccines and drug development. We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to explore the evolution of age-dependent interactions between mucosal immunity and pathogens. The successful candidate will have expertise in T cell and dendritic cell biology and host-microbe interactions. Experience in immunology, virology, molecular biology, transcriptomics, and data analysis is preferred. The successful applicant will also have excellent communication and collaborative abilities, a PhD or MD/PhD, and demonstrated effective writing skills.
