Post-Doctoral Associate Positions Available (85937)

Gainesville, FL
*Open Date:*
Oct 29, 2021
Up to three full time post-doctoral research positions will be available in February 2022 for qualified candidates interested in the study of "*host pathogen interactions in the context of influenza and respiratory bacterial infections*".
*One position* will focus on "Epithelial Host Response to Influenza Infection". The candidate will use in vitro epithelial culture models to investigate the role of cellular pathways implicated in influenza virus mediated epithelial injury and barrier disruption. This position requires a robust training in epithelial cell culture, qPCR, western blot, transfection, and microscopy.
*The second position* will investigate "The role of inflammatory monocytes and M1/M2 macrophages in lung inflammation, pathology, and repair in influenza severe disease". The candidate will use mouse infection models, cutting edge immunology, and scRNASeq techniques to study the dynamics of above cell types in the regulation of pathologic vs. protective inflammation during influenza pathogenesis". This position requires robust training in mouse infection models, flow cytometry, and cell-based assays.
*The third position* will focus on "The role of CD8 T cells and IL-17/IL-22 pathways in the pathogenesis of infleunza and bacterial co-infection disease". The candidate will perform immune response analysis in influenza-bacterial coinfection models and test the targeted pathways implicated in airway tissue injury and bacterial invasion. This position requires robust training in mouse infection models, flow cytometry, molecular biology, and cell-based assays.
These positions are funded by "National Institute of Health".
The collaborative nature of these projects will enable qualified candidates to explore "the basic science of host-pathogen interaction and immunology." The candidates will work in an excellent environment with ample opportunities for cutting-edge training in infection biology and career development.

Applicants must possess a Ph.D., or similar degree in Biochemistry, Microbiology, Immunology or Biotechnology, and have significant basic research experience in fields such as (but not limited to) Immunology, cell biology, molecular biology, or microbiology.

*Application Instructions:*
Please submit the following required items: Curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and the names and contact information of 3 individuals familiar with your research.
This position is open until filled. Application review will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
The final candidate will be required to provide official transcript to the hiring department upon hire. A transcript will not be considered "official" if a designation of "Issued to Student" is visible.
