Post-Doctoral Research Fellow - Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine

Location:
Center for Lung Biology/South Lake Union campus, Seattle, WA
Open Date:
Nov 29, 2018
Description:

A post-doctoral position is available in Dr. Manicone’s laboratory in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. The incumbent will conduct research in the Division's Center for Lung Biology. This position is ideal for highly motivated candidates who are interesting in exploring macrophage biology in the context of lung injury models.

Potential projects include exploring macrophage signaling pathways regulating reparative macrophage polarization as a therapeutic in lung injury; exploring macrophage regulation of endothelial and epithelial injury responses. Projects may involve using murine models of lung disease (sterile or non-sterile acute lung injury, acute and chronic cigarette-smoke exposure), and molecular biology techniques to test novel pharmaceutical targets and generate and study mutant protein constructs in vitro.

Faculty at the University of Washington engage in teaching, research and service. This is a 12-month full-time position with the title of Senior Fellow or Senior Fellow Trainee.

Salary is based on the NIH scale and determined by the number of full years of relevant postdoctoral experience.

Anticipated start date would be June 2019.


Qualifications:

Successful candidates will have a recent PhD in immunology, cell biology, or related field. Prior research experience with murine models of disease, and molecular biology techniques including cloning are desirable.


Application Instructions:

Interested and qualified candidates should submit a CV and cover letter that includes a description of their training, research background, and career goals and contact information for 3 references addressed to Anne Manicone, MD. The CV and cover letter should be submitted via Interfolio.
