Department of Microbiology and Immunology
Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine
A postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Liselotte E. Jensen at Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. The highly motivated successful applicant will study the role of innate immune mechanisms during viral and bacterial infections of the skin and central nervous system. Experimental models will include in vitro assays, tissue culture and knockout/transgenic mice. The study aims to identify novel regulatory mechanisms of signal transduction, and will, for example, explore the functions of the IL-36 cytokines and long non-coding RNAs.
- A Ph.D. in Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular, and/or Cell Biology.
- Peer-reviewed publications in the field(s) of Immunology, Microbiology, and/or Signal Transduction.
- Experience with molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, signal transduction, cell culture methods, and/or mouse models of disease.
- Excellent written and oral communication skills in English.
- Must be willing and able to handle mice.
Additional experience with in vivo infection models, and in situ hybridization is highly desirable.
The position will remain open until a suitable candidate is identified.
