Immunity and AgingPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Jan-23
We are recruiting goal-oriented, creative, collaborative and highly motivated postdocs to use single cell omics, transcriptome and epigenome to study T cell differentiation and age-related alterations of T cell function. We perform both bulk and single-cell genomic, epigenetic, transcriptomic, and proteomic assays to study the role of T cell differentiation and age-related changes. We use the advanced single-cell technologies to dissect the role of T cell differentiation and aging. Specifically, we study the 1) epigenetic regulation of transcriptomes during CD8 T cell differentiation and aging; 2) antigen-specific CD8 T and B cell receptor repertoires against virus and their roles in T cell response and aging; and 3) role of telomere/telomerase in T cell function and aging. Our scope ranges from fundamental molecular mechanisms to clinical applications. We use human samples and mouse models for research with goals for advancing immunology as well as clinical applications.Qualifications:
We encourage applicants with relevant experiences in immunology, microbiology, genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, and bioengineering to join our team. Successful applicant is expected to have a PhD or MD/PhD with substantial research experience. Prior experiences with molecular biology, immunology, and human and mouse work are preferred.
