Postdoctoral fellowship in Applied Developmental Immunology

Posted by , on 22 June 2018

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

The Maehr lab ( is looking for a team member in the area of developmental immunology and human pluripotent stem cell-based disease models.

Envisioned projects will utilize pluripotent stem cell differentiation approaches, together with assays of thymus and T cell development, to decipher the molecular underpinnings of human immune syndromes such as thymus dysfunction-based autoimmunity and immunodeficiency. In addition to stem cell differentiation and immunological assays, the team will apply technologies such as functional genomins (e.g. CRIPSR) and single cell RNA-sequencing as well as computational approaches.

Candidates should possess a Ph.D. and have a strong background in immunology and/or developmental biology. Experience with immunological assays, stem cell differentiation, bioengineering and/or next generation sequencing assays is desirable. Excellent communication, writing, and collaboration skills are essential.

Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and 3 references to Dr. René Maehr, Associate Professor of Molecular Medicine, UMass Medical School (
