University of Pennsylvania
A post-doctoral position is available immediately at The University of Pennsylvania in the field of T cell autoimmunity.
We are recruiting one highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study how acquisition of cytotoxic function by CD4+ T cells promotes autoimmunity in rheumatoid arthritis and type I diabetes. We use a combination of mass cytometry, peptide-MHC tetramers, and single cell TCR sequencing to study T cell specificity and repertoire composition at the single cell level. Mechanistic insights will be generated by interrogating patient derived specimens and by using animal models of disease. The ideal candidate will have expertise in molecular cloning, tissue culture, protein chemistry, and flow cytometry.
To apply, please send your curriculum vitae and a cover letter with a statement of research and technical experience by e-mail to Dr. Laura Su at email@example.com
