A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available at the Cleveland Clinic in the Neuroinflammation group to study immune regulation during central nervous system autoimmunity in mice in a unique model of chronic progressive disease. Recent findings show that the astrocyte response to interferon gamma is essential to limiting immune mediated destruction. These studies examine astrocyte dependent regulation of autoreactive T cell function using a variety of KO mice, adoptive transfers and bone marrow chimeric mice. Mechanisms will be identified using gene profiling and verified with in vitro approaches using cultures of primary astrocytes. Individuals with either a strong background in cellular immunology or neuroscience, including in vitro culture systems, are encouraged to apply. The candidate must have received a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. degree.
The Lerner Research Institute, located on the Cleveland Clinic campus is an excellent integrated research community consisting of eleven departments and eleven centers. The Neuro-Inflammation Center bridges both Immunology and Neuroscience, encompassing faculty with diverse interests in developmental neuroscience, neuroinflammation, neurodegenerative disease as well as molecular and cellular immunology. The Cleveland Clinic is an equal opportunity employer.
To apply, please send your curriculum vitae and names and contact information for three references to:
