A postdoctoral fellowship is available immediately at the Institute of Human Virology, University of Maryland School of Medicine to study the impact of polysialic acid modification of a select group of cell surface proteins on the function of immune cells during bacterial and viral pneumonia. The ideal candidate will be experienced in immunology and glycobiology and specifically, in isolating populations of cells from human blood and manipulating them in vitro, in flow cytometry and cell migration techniques, and in isolation and characterization of glycoproteins. Additionally, the candidate will have experience with murine models of inflammation/infection. This position is ideal for a motivated individual who embraces conceptual and technical innovation and who can excel in a highly interactive scientific environment in a relatively new direction of glycobiology.
- A Ph.D. and/or M.D. with strong experience in molecular and cellular biology, immunology and glycobiology
- Experience with murine models of inflammation/infection
- Demonstrated independence and motivation
- Record of first author publications
Candidates should submit a single PDF document by email that contains a current CV, a cover letter expressing research interests and goals and motivation for this position, and the names and contact information of three references.
