Postdoctoral FellowshipsPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2018-Jan-10
The positions are funded for 3+ years and will be filled at the postdoctoral fellow or research associate level, depending on qualifications. The research projects will expand our novel approaches to induce immune tolerance to a therapeutic protein drug, coagulation factor VIII. Techniques will include tissue culture, flow cytometry, ELISPOT/Fluorospot assays, TCR repertoire profiling (including single-cell methods), RNASeq and transcriptomics analysis, molecular biology and protein chemistry. Our goal is to understand the mechanisms governing making and breaking of peripheral tolerance to protein therapeutics, and to translate research results to improve clinical outcomes for patients.
USU is in Bethesda, MD, directly across the street from the NIH, and is thus part of an extraordinarily vibrant local biomedical research community. Our research projects take advantage of recently established Core facilities for Nextgen sequencing and Bioinformatics analysis. USU has a strongly collaborative environment, with weekly Immunology data club and journal club meetings, as well as regular research seminars featuring local and invited speakers.
