Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Immunology-Cytokine Signaling & CNS Autoimmune Diseases

A Postdoctoral Fellowship position is available in the Molecular Immunology Section, LI, NEI, NIH. The research interest of the Section is on molecular & cellular mechanisms that regulate the development of CNS autoimmune diseases. Focus is on the immunobiology of IL-35 and IL-27; (ii) Role of IL-35-producing regulatory B cells (i35-Breg) and IL-27-producing Bregs (i27-Breg) as regulators of immunity in a mouse model of Uveitis or Multiple Sclerosis; (iii) Transcriptome and epigenetic analyses of i35-Breg and i27-Breg cells.

The candidate must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and with less than 4 years of postdoctoral experience. The candidate should also have expertise in multi-dimensional flow cytometry, especially in the analysis of primary human and mouse immune cells. Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply. U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply.
