Post-Doctoral Fellow - Nutritional Osteoimmunology
Job Summary: Postdoctoral Fellow position is available for a highly motivated individual interested in studying how bioactive food components affect the gut-bone axis through their immune-modulating properties. Ongoing studies are focused on exploring the role of dietary bioactives on T cell populations within the gut mucosal immune system and their contribution to the regulation of bone metabolism. These projects utilize animal models and cell culture systems, and require basic cellular and molecular laboratory techniques that include protein assays, gene expression analyses and genetic modification strategies using CRISPR-Cas technology. Additionally, immunohistochemistry, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) and imaging techniques (e.g., x-ray micro-computed tomography, dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry and scanning electron microscopy) will be used.
