The Leung lab (www.globalguthealth.org) in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of Utah is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on translational immunology projects relating to mucosal infections. This position will include research on:
1) Human mucosal immune responses to cholera infection and vaccination.
2) Transcriptional regulation of mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cell activity.
3) Host transcriptomics of intestinal infections in humans
Projects will involve international travel to work in collaboration with scientists in cholera-endemic regions such as Vietnam, Haiti, and Bangladesh.
The successful candidate should have experience with immunologic and genomic approaches to evaluate immune responses in both in vivo and in vitro models. Expertise in bioinformatics would be beneficial, though not essential. Candidates must have a PhD and possess excellent verbal and written communication skills.
Interested applicants should send a personal statement, CV, and names of 3 references to: Daniel.Leung@utah.edu.
