A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Milena Bogunovic, M.D., Ph.D. in the Department of Pathology at UMass Medical School (Worcester, MA).
Our research is focused on mucosal immunology and neuroimmune interactions in the gastrointestinal tract and the role of mononuclear phagocytes (dendritic cells and macrophages) in inflammatory bowel disease and infection. The research techniques used in the lab include multicolor flow cytometry and cell sorting, confocal and two-photon microscopy combined with transcriptomics to reconstruct the dynamics and anatomy of immune interactions in the intestinal tissue of mice and humans.
Requirements: 1) doctoral degree (M.D., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.); 2) 0-1 years of postdoctoral experience; 3) strong expertise in multicolor flow cytometry; and/or 4) strong expertise in tissue imaging and two photon microscopy; 5) experience working with mice; 6) records of productive research including publications in major peer reviewed journals.
