Investigator: Clara Abraham, MD
Mucosal Immunity and Intestinal Inflammation
Yale University, New Haven, CT
Postdoctoral positions are available for research on mucosal immunity, intestinal immune homeostasis/intestinal inflammation, and innate immunity.
The laboratory focuses on understanding mechanisms regulating innate immune responses, host pathogen interactions, and immunological pathways regulating mucosal immunity and inflammatory bowel disease. The current position will involve examination of molecular and biochemical mechanisms regulating innate cells and pattern recognition pathways, and in vivo intestinal and intestinal-pertinent immune responses, along with potential cross-talk of intestinal immunity with additional immunological sites. Studies incorporate approaches in both primary human immune cells and mouse model systems.
Education and experience: Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree with a strong background in cellular and molecular immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and mouse models of inflammation. Experience in examination of intestinal tissues, multiparameter flow cytometry, and genetic modification of model organisms is desired.
To Apply: Please send curriculum vitae, three names of reference and a one page summary of research background and interests to Clara Abraham, M.D. (Clara.Abraham@yale.edu)
