Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Vascular Biology and Cellular Immunology - (200000XU)
NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow positions are immediately available to investigate the role of different subsets of macrophages and microglia in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular, autoimmune and neurological diseases, including atherosclerosis, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's Disease. The major goal of these studies is to molecularly define how integrin receptors on inflammatory and resident macrophages/microglia differentially regulate intracellular signaling events and thereby confer them with either pro- or anti-inflammatory activities in the setting of health and diseases. The post-doc fellow will need to perform experiments involving molecular biology, immune regulation, and murine models of human diseases.
Prior experience in at least some of these methodologies, such as molecular biology, immunology, transcriptomics/bioinformatics or imaging is preferred.
