The Serezani Laboratory is looking to have an outstanding postdoc to study the mechanisms involved in exaggerated inflammatory response that occurs during sepsis. Exaggerated inflammation leads to organ injury and morbidities associated with sepsis. Furthermore, we study how people and mice with diabetes handle systemic infections. This project is funded by the NIH and we will be studying how phosphatases and microRNAs intersect to decrease signaling programs involved in both bacterial recognition and effector mechanisms involved in cell death. The candidate should have a basic knowledge of immunology, biochemistry and cell biology. Technical experience in basic methods such as qPCR, immunoblotting, FACS analysis, confocal imaging will be greatly appreciate it. Experience with animal models is mandatory. Salary will be based on NIH guidelines based on previous experiences.
To apply, email C. Henrique Serezani a cover letter, CV and 2-3 reference letters.
