Postdoc Position Available at the University of Michigan in Immunology

Modified: December 5, 2014

Institution: University of Michigan
Location: Ann Arbor, MI
PI: Nicholas Lukacs, Ph.D.

This laboratory focuses on research examining the mechanisms of allergen and viral-induced pulmonary disease (RSV) that centers on development and regulation of Th2 and Th17 immune environments related to chronic disease. A significant portion of our research has focused upon dendritic cell biology and the subsequent activation of T cell subsets. Projects involve both in vivo and in vitro modeling of immune and stromal cell function, autophagy-induced activation, as well as epigenetic regulation of immune responses. The laboratory environment has been established to allow scientific development and professional growth leading to an independent career. This post-doc position will allow the trainee an opportunity to develop independent research projects in a career-oriented environment.

Competitive candidates will have a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. with expertise in molecular and cellular Immunology and a proven publication record with strong oral and written communication skills.

To apply: Qualified applicants should submit their CV and contact information for 3 references by email to: Nick Lukacs, Ph.D., Professor of Pathology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI;  nlukacs@umich.edu
