Postdoctoral Fellowship in Transplant Immunology
A postdoctoral fellowship position is available to train in the field of solid organ transplant immunology. The successful candidate will work with an exciting team of scientists at the Northwestern University Comprehensive Transplant Center.
The main focus of the laboratory is to develop immune monitoring assays for monitoring subjects enrolled in ongoing clinical trails of transplantation tolerance at our center which is one of the largest transplant centers in the country. The candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. M. Javeed Ansari to do studies specifically related to Th17 immunity and to elucidate the mechanisms of allograft rejection and tolerance. Strong background in immunology is required. Professional development of the trainees is facilitated.
The center has a number of renowned investigators doing transplantation immunobilogy research including Drs. Joshua Miller and Stephen D. Miller who will serve as co-mentors. There is ample opportunity for interaction and collaboration with other scientists within the center and the Microbiology-Immunology Department at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
