Descripció:

Dr. Angus Thomson’s research group at the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute and the Department of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work in the field of transplantation immunology. Our laboratory focuses on cellular and molecular immunology, and uses contemporary molecular and cell biological techniques to evaluate the roles of dendritic cells and T lymphocytes in regulation of alloimmune responses in organ transplantation. These studies include translational studies of tolerance induction in clinically-relevant transplant models and initial testing of regulatory immune cell therapy in patients. The successful applicant will work closely with other investigators skilled in T cell and dendritic cell biology. Requirements: Applicants are required to have an MD or a PhD degree in immunology, molecular biology, or a related field, obtained within the past five years. Experience and skills with cellular immunology and molecular biology techniques are required. Experimental skills working with small or large animal models would be an advantage. The successful applicant is expected to be a team player, but also to work independently, and to have strong oral and written communication skills. The position is supported by NIH funding. The salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s research experience and skills. The University of Pittsburgh is an equal opportunity employer in accordance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
