Postdoctoral Fellow in Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
University of California Los Angeles
The Valenzuela Laboratory in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UCLA is seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Fellow. Successful candidates will have obtained or will soon be eligible to obtain their PhD or MD/PhD in the field of immunology, organ transplantation or vascular biology, with less than 7 years of post-doctoral training.
Applicants are expected to have research experience working with human and murine leukocytes and/or vascular cells, with technical expertise in mammalian cell culture, murine models, flow cytometry, PCR, immunoblotting, cell isolation, ELISA, and transcriptome or epigenetic studies. Candidates should also demonstrate independence, critical thinking, leadership, and excellent written and oral communication skills, with peer reviewed publications in the field(s) of immunology, vascular biology and/or organ transplantation.
The fellow will be part of a multi-disciplinary team engaged in research projects that are centered around the diversity of endothelial cell inflammatory responses, and how vascular endothelial cells shape the adaptive immune response. Available project areas of study include heterogeneity in endothelial positional identity; mechanisms of durability and resolution of vascular inflammatory responses; the role of transcriptional repressors in shaping endothelial inflammatory gene expression; and the function of the endothelium as a semi-professional antigen presenting cell during organ transplant rejection.
