Individual will work in the new state-of-the-art Microbial Sciences Building at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the flagship campus. Projects address host immune mechanisms directed against inhaled pathogenic fungi. Two NIH funded postdoctoral positions/projects are available to study innate and adaptive immunity to fungi. The research focuses on lung epithelial cell and myeloid cell interactions that promote T cell immunity. Background and skills in cellular and molecular immunology are highly desirable. The sucessful candidate is expected to function independently and with a skilled team, together with the principal investigator, Bruce Klein.
Experience in immunological techniques, cell culture, molecular biology and work with mice would be useful, but not required. Positions available immediately. UW-Madison offers a vibrant scientific campus and community and the city is consistently ranked among the best places to live.
