Duties and Responsibilities
Duties and Responsibilities:
This is a post-doctoral fellowship position. The candidate will conduct research focused on the neuroendocrine regulation of innate immune responses in the context of skin wound infection or urinary tract infection, funded by two separate NIH grants. The candidate will use in vitro culture systems to identify innate immune signaling pathways enhanced or impaired by distinct neuroendocrine target molecules. The candidate will also conduct in vivo host-pathogen interactions in novel transgenic mice lacking specific neuroendocrine target molecules in the skin or bladder.
This work requires a strong background in molecular biology and/or biochemistry, and requires experience with mammalian cell culture and mouse models of injury and/or infection. In addition to the qualifications above, experience with handling bacterial cultures, shRNA/CRISPR, or HPLC protein purification is also preferred.
Minimum Education and/or Work Experience:
•PhD or MD/PhD degree
•Strong background understanding host-pathogen interactions
