Job Details

Job Description

Postdoctoral Fellow in Cellular and Molecular Immunology,

Full Time Position


This NIH funded laboratory investigates the molecular and cellular determinants of alloantigen specific tolerance using murine models of cardiac and pancreatic islet transplantation.  Specific investigations involve the determination of mechanisms responsible for remodeling of secondary lymphoid organ structure, and how those mechanisms drive T cell migration, differentiation, and fate determination.  The molecular focus of the investigations is directed to chemokines, chemokine receptors, cytokines, sphingosine receptors, lymphotoxin, and stromal fibers.  Specific cellular elements include regulatory suppressive T cells, effector T cells, vascular and lymphatic endothelial cells, stromal cells, and dendritic cell subsets.  Techniques include heavy reliance on in vivo animal models, migration and trafficking assays, real time imaging and advanced microscopy, multicolor flow and sorting, and a variety of molecular techniques for proteins and nucleic acids.




Qualifications

Successful candidates will have at a minimum a recent PhD in immunology or a highly related biomedical field, demonstration of success in publication and presentation, and familiarity or expertise in many of the techniques utilized by the lab.

Organization

Welcome to the Baltimore campus of the University of Maryland, founded in 1807 along a ridge in what was then called Baltimore Town. Today, this 61-acre research and technology complex encompasses 65 buildings in West Baltimore near the Inner Harbor.

The University is Maryland's only public academic health, human services, and law center. Seven professional and graduate schools train the majority of the state's physicians, nurses, dentists, lawyers, social workers, and pharmacists.

Under the leadership of President Jay A. Perman, MD, the University is a leading partner in the redevelopment of the west side of Baltimore. The University of Maryland BioPark, which opened in October 2005, promotes collaborative research opportunities and bioscience innovation.

Sponsored research totaled $567.1 million in Fiscal Year 2010. With 6,349 students and 6,717 faculty members and staff, the University is an economic engine that returns more than $15 in economic activity for every $1 of state general funds appropriation. The University community gives more than 2 million hours a year in service to the public.

Mission


The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is the State¹s public health, law and human services university devoted to excellence in professional and graduate education, research, patient care, and public service. As a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff and students, and using state-of-the-art technological support, we educate leaders in health care delivery, biomedical science, global health, social work and the law. We emphasize interdisciplinary education and research in an atmosphere that explicitly values civility, diversity, collaboration, teamwork and accountability. By conducting internationally recognized research to cure disease and to improve the health, social functioning and just treatment of the people we serve, we foster economic development in the City, State, and nation. We are committed to ensuring that the knowledge we generate provides maximum benefit to society and directly enhances our various communities.
