Postdoctoral Fellows - Transcriptional regulation of CD4 T helper and innate lymphoid cell subsets


Postdoctoral fellow positions are available, beginning Oct. 1, 2020, in the Molecular and Cellular Immunoregulation Section (MCIS) of the Laboratory of Immune System Biology (LISB) within the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The MCIS aims to address heterogeneity and plasticity of CD4 T helper (Th) and innate lymphoid cell (ILC) subsets regulated by transcription factor complexes. We utilize multicolor “reporter”, conditional knockout, fate-mapping, and CRISPR/Cas9 murine models as well as RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and single cell technologies to study Th and ILC subsets in autoimmune, allergic and infectious settings. To find out more about LISB, visit the laboratory’s website.


We are seeking highly motivated and collaborative individuals with a strong publication record who are capable of independent reasoning and excited about learning new technologies. The candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree, with less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience. Preference will be given to candidates who have knowledge in immunology, in vivo animal models, single cell analysis or genome-wide analyses of gene expression, epigenetic modifications and transcription factor binding using RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq technologies. Previous experience in molecular and cellular biology is essential. The candidates should also have excellent writing and communication skills. Underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.


To Apply

For interested applicants, please send a short statement of your research goals, curriculum vitae, and bibliography as well as the names and contact information of three references to Dr. Jeff Zhu, jfZhu@niaid.nih.gov. Positions will remain open until filled.
