Postdoctoral Fellow (Croft)

Postdoctoral Position In Allergic Disease Inflammation Research

Position summary:

Postdoctoral positions are available immediately to join a multi-disciplinary team in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Croft that is focused on control of allergic disease by TNF family proteins. The research projects are to understand how several proteins related to TNF are important for allergen-driven inflammation in animal models of atopic dermatitis, asthma, or eosinophilic esophagitis. Emphasis will be on in vivo regulation of structural cell activity in the mouse, and include studies of human epithelial cells, fibroblasts, or smooth muscle cells.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. or M.D. in Immunology, and experience working with in vivo animal models of immune disease and culture of human immune-relevant cells. A background in cytokine analysis, DNA/RNA studies, flow cytometry, and histochemistry assays for in vivo tissue inflammation in animal models is essential.
