New post-doctoral opportunities at Weill Cornell Medicine
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. David Artis, PhD, in the Department of Medicine, Jill Roberts Institute, at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City (http://robertsinstitute.weill.cornell.edu).
The goals of the Artis lab are to understand the regulatory mechanisms that control immune cell homeostasis at the body’s barrier surfaces. Employing diverse murine models of microbial colonization, pathogen infection and chronic inflammation, research in the Artis lab is examining how mammalian host genetics and signals derived from commensal microbial communities influence innate and adaptive immune responses in the skin, lung and intestine.
The Artis lab has also forged a number of clinical collaborations and began to develop translational research approaches that will allow analysis of findings in murine model systems to be tested in patient populations. Employing tissue samples from clinically-defined patient populations, recent studies are examining the cellular sources of proinflammatory cytokines in the context of allergic diseases, inflammatory bowel disease or skin inflammation. These approaches offer the potential to significantly advance our understanding of the pathogenesis of multiple chronic inflammatory diseases.
There are multiple project possibilities within these general concepts. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. or M.D.Ph.D degree in immunology or microbiology and possess outstanding command of knowledge in immunology. Proficiency in standard molecular biology, cell biology and immunologic techniques, accompanied with a track record of publication in these areas, are required.
Weill Cornell Medicine is committed to being an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer and recognizes the power of a diverse community. We encourage applications from protected veterans, individuals with disabilities and those with varied experiences, perspectives and backgrounds to consider Cornell as their employer of choice.
Interested individuals should contact Dr. Artis ([email protected]) for more details.
