We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated postdoctoral fellow to study the mammalian innate immune responses upon fungal infections. Combining in vivo and in vitro techniques, the candidate will understand how pathogenic fungi, such as Candida albicans, alter and modify the host innate immune inflammatory functions.
The applicant should hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree. The candidate must have a solid background in analysis of host immune function and a strong interest in microbial pathogenesis and/or host-pathogen interactions. Experience with cellular and molecular biology as well in vivo murine models are highly desirable. Candidates must have prior publications, have excellent scientific and organizational skills, be able to work in collaboration, and have good English language skills for presentations and writing scientific papers.
