Postdoctoral Fellow: (Translational Autoinflammatory Disease Research)

Division of Intramural Research (DIR)
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
The Translational Autoinflammatory Disease Section in LCIM is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work on translational research projects linking suggestive disease-causing mutations to pathways that cause autoinflammatory diseases in children and to identify inflammatory pathways that can be targeted therapeutically. We attempt to understand the role of these mutations on the immune dysregulation in hematopoietic cells and on disease-specific organ dysfunction and damage.
The successful applicant will be expected to perform mechanistic studies, analyze the resulting data, prepare and submit manuscripts, and present at scientific conferences. The applicant is required to have a strong background in molecular biology and/or immunology. Excellent writing skills, a strong publication record, and the ability to work independently are required. Computer skills and the ability to analyze high-throughput sequencing data are a plus.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter explaining their research background, accomplishments, and goals; a curriculum vitae; and the names and contact details of three references to Dr. Raphaela Goldbach-Mansky (email@example.com).
