Immunology and Obesity Associated ComplicationsPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-Feb-28
A fulltime position for a post-doctoral researcher is available in the laboratory of Willa Hsueh, MD, located at The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Hsueh is the director of Ohio State Wexner Medical Center's Diabetes and Metabolism Research Center (DMRC). The DMRC has a group of outstanding scientists in diabetes research available for collaborative research.
The Hsueh lab has strong translational efforts and focuses on immunometabolism as it relates to adipose tissue changes with high fat and western diets and effects on inflammatory driven complications such as atherosclerosis, fatty liver disease, and cardiac and renal function. The goal is to develop unique methodology to prevent pro-inflammatory immune cell changes.
Research to include adaptive immunity in the development and progression of obesity-induced adipose inflammation in human and mouse models, such as how adipocytes act as antigen presenting cells to interact with T cells. Animal and cell model systems as well as human tissue samples are used in research projects. Techniques such as real time PCR, multicolor flow cytometry and sorting, tissue histology and imaging, cell isolation and cell culture are routinely employed in the lab. Prior experience in immunology, Tcell biology, flow cytometry, tissue imaging and/or in molecular biology and bioinformatics will be extremely beneficial. Knowledge of antigen identification and isolation is a plus. The successful candidate must be able to independently design and perform research projects; perform animal experiments; write and maintain protocols; analyze data and create presentations; and write manuscripts and grant applications.Qualifications:
A doctoral degree in biological sciences or other relevant field with demonstrated experience in flow cytometry techniques and cell culture is required. Experience in cellular and molecular biology research with a strong background in immunology desired. Good writing and oral communication skills in English are required, as well as the ability to work both independently and collaboratively.To Apply:
