Postdoc in Leukocyte Trafficking in Mucosal Injury

Application deadline closed.

Job Description

Opportunities for creative and motivated postdocs to participate in cutting-edge exciting research projects are available to investigate mechanisms regulating leukocyte trafficking, mucosal injury and wound repair as well as epithelial barrier function in inflammatory intestinal diseases. Our research employs state-of-the-art immunology, molecular/cell biology, imaging, and multi-omics (proteomics, single-cell sequencing including spatial transcriptomics) approaches. Experimental approaches also utilize a variety of genetically modified mice, stem cell derived organoids, and human tissues.

Highly motivated and organized candidates who have recently obtained a doctoral degree (Ph.D. or equivalent) with excellent scientific writing and strong verbal communication skills are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will become part of a well-funded, highly productive, and collaborative team of multi-national investigators in a modern and well-equipped laboratory space. Within the group, there is a strong commitment to mentorship and an excellent record of success for both academic and industrial-career track-oriented individuals. Successful candidates will be expected to design and execute experiments, publish results in high quality peer-reviewed journals and participate in preparation and submission of research grant applications under the guidance of two principal investigators with extensive expertise in mucosal immunology and epithelial biology.

Interested individuals should send resume and contact information of preferred references to Drs. Asma Nusrat and Charles Parkos, University of Michigan, E-mail: anusrat@umich.edu, cparkos@med.umich.edu.

Preferred Research Skills

Preference will be given to individuals with proficiency in innate and/or adaptive immune cell and epithelial biology with expertise in flow cytometry, RNA seq, and mouse models of inflammation.
