A Research Assistant Professor position is available at the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of North Dakota, School of Medicine and Health Sciences, to study the immune mechanisms required for the maintenance of immune homeostasis at the mucosal surfaces of the intestinal tract. Using a wide range of established animal models, we are trying to understand how immune responses to mucosal pathogens and during Intestinal inflammation are regulated. Our lab is interested in using state-of-the-art immunology, microbiology, single-cell analysis, molecular biology, and genomic approaches to understand the mechanisms by which immunity/inflammation is regulated at the mucosal surface of the intestine. A multidisciplinary strategy is being used in this study, which includes flow cytometry, next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics, microbiomics and in-vivo functional studies involving animal models of infection/intestinal inflammation.Duties & Responsibilities
