Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Immunology-Cytokine Signaling Mechanisms
A postdoctoral position is available in the Molecular Immunology Section, Laboratory of Immunology, National Eye Institute (NEI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), in Bethesda, MD. A major focus of research is in the use of genetically modified mouse and rat strains to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate the development of central nervous system (CNS) inflammatory diseases, such as Uveitis, Multiple Sclerosis, and Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Particular interest is on cytokine signaling pathways and epigenetic mechanisms that regulate lymphocyte development and cell-fate decisions. The overall goal is to develop cytokine-based therapy for treatment of autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases. The successful candidate should be a highly motivated and creative Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. scientist with reasonable publication record. Strong background in cellular immunology, molecular biology, and experience in animal models of human diseases is preferred. Research interest of the lab can be gleaned from the section website at irp.nih.gov/pi/charles-egwuagu.
