A postdoctoral position in innate immunity and microbiome is available immediately (Cambridge, MA, USA)
We are currently seeking highly motivated candidates for a postdoctoral position to study the interaction between the commensal microbiota and the intestinal innate immune system. The project will focus on mechanistic investigations into how the mucosal immune system detects the presence of commensal bacteria and differentiates them from pathogens. The candidate will leverage cutting-edge cell biology, immunology, and microbiology techniques, in combination with start-of-the-art genetic and chemical high-throughput screening platforms to dissect the fundamental mechanisms of intestinal innate immune recognition and signaling.
