Posted Date:

Position Description

Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions in immunology/ innate memory/ immunotherapy research areas are immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Bibhuti Mishra at University of Texas Health Sciences Center San Antonio. The project combines immunology and genomics tools with in vitro and animal model work to address questions related to the understanding of innate memory and trained immunity in disparate disease conditions such as Pneumonia, Sjogren syndrome, and Neurocysticercosis. The successful candidates will have expertise for taking a leading role in the progress of ongoing projects.

Highly motivated candidate will join projects funded by multiple NIH R01 grants focusing on macrophage and neutrophil responses to profile transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic changes guiding innate memory response, myelopoiesis and granulopoiesis in animal models and patient samples, with a long-term goal of precision medicine drug discovery and patient care.

These positions offer highly competitive salary, outstanding scientific resources, and unique opportunities to interact with other immunologists at UT Health San Antonio, and other high-profile institutions such as the MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston. 

Position Requirements

The candidate should possess exceptionally strong academic credentials and an interest in multidisciplinary collaborative research. Required expertise includes sophisticated microscopy techniques, molecular biology and immunology techniques including but not limited to immunofluorescence, transfection, gene silencing, RNA sequencing, flow cytometry and cell culture.
