Postdoctoral Fellow - immunology, developmental biology
immunology, developmental biology, molecular biology
The Thymus Biology Section in the Experimental Immunology Branch, CCR, NCI, NIH, focuses on the mechanisms of how the thymic microenvironments contribute to the development of functionally potent and self-tolerant T cells. We are particularly interested in studying how the diversity in thymic epithelial cells develops, how thymic epithelial cell subpopulations contribute to functional-tuning and self-tolerance in T cells, and how the thymic microenvironments sequentially guide the position of developing T cells to optimize their development and selection. Unveiling the thymic machinery in these processes will aid future therapies.
We are looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic scientist with a recent Ph.D. or M.D. Must have experience in immunology, developmental biology, and molecular biology.
Our recent contributions include: Murata et al. Nat Immunol. 2018; Sakata et al. J Immunol. 2018; Kozai et al. J Exp Med. 2017; Ohigashi et al. JCI Insight. 2017; Uddin et al.
