Postdoc in Applied Developmental Immunology and Stem Cell Biology

Posted by , on 7 June 2021

Location: UMass Medical School

Closing Date: 1 June 2022

The Maehr Laboratory is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow to investigate the molecular basis of immune cell development.

The applicant will be taking on pluripotent stem cell differentiation approaches with applied developmental immunology approaches and functional genomics, to decipher the molecular underpinnings of human immune cell development and function. In addition, the collaborative project will apply disease models, single-cell omics, and collaborate with computational biologists on data-integration and machine learning approaches.

The dynamic and collaborative Maehr lab is embedded in the cutting edge research environment of the Program in Molecular Medicine and Diabetes Center Of Excellence at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
