Title: Immunology Postdoctoral Position
Location: Boston, MA
Employer: Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School
Summary: Postdoctoral position available immediately to study the inflammatory host responses, focusing on the role of microbiota in regulating the innate immunity to pathogens with specific emphasis on ocular immunity. The postdoctoral candidate should have a good background in immunology or microbiology and interest in applying system biology approaches to study complex diseases such as microbiota driven innate immune regulation. With access to the state-of-the-art genomic and proteomic technologies, the fellow will identify and characterize novel pathways that regulate host inflammatory responses and determine their functional importance. The emphasis for this postdoctoral project will be to generate high-quality publications as well as impact on therapeutic approaches to infectious diseases.
