Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellow in the Brückner lab at The University of California San Francisco, Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research.
The laboratory investigates inter-organ communication in innate immunity and hematopoiesis, focusing on the regulation of hematopoiesis by sensory inputs and signals from the nervous system, and molecular mechanisms of organismal immunity to bacterial infection (Makhijani et al. Nature Communications 2017; Sanchez Bosch et al. Developmental Cell 2019). The NIH funded project on organismal immunity will investigate a signaling relay between blood cells and the respiratory epithelia.
The ideal candidate is a talented and productive scientist with a background in developmental biology and genetics. Underrepresented minority candidates are in particular encouraged to apply. Prior work with Drosophila genetics, neurobiology or hematopoiesis/macrophage biology is desirable. General skills in molecular and cell biology, and good communication skills are expected. Candidates must hold a recent PhD, MD or MD/PhD degree, or anticipate such degree in the near future. We are looking for candidates who are motivated, hardworking, and have prior publications.
UCSF and the Broad Center offer a vibrant scientific environment and state of the art facilities. The Brückner lab provides infrastructure, a collegial environment, training and opportunities to work in teams.
