Postdoctoral Position in Mucosal Immunology (USA)
Contacto: Emilio Flano
Información: Postdoctoral Position in Mucosal Immunology. A postdoctoral position is
available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Emilio Flano at the Center for Vaccines
and Immunity to study the role of early innate immune mediators on T lymphocyte
trafficking into the lung. Our laboratory is interested in understanding the mechanisms
of immune control of respiratory viral infections. The lung is the major portal by which
microorganisms enter the body and acute respiratory infections are the leading cause of
acute illness worldwide. We use primary airway epithelial cell cultures and mouse
models of infection to study how the epithelium of the lung initiates and regulates local
adaptive immune responses. Applicants must have a PhD with strong background in
immunology. Candidates should e-mail their application, including curriculum vitae and
the names and contact details of at least two references with whom they worked to:
