Postdoctoral positions in organoid modeling of mucosal immunity and pathogen infection including SARS-CoV-2.
Postdoctoral positions are available in the Calvin Kuo laboratory at Stanford to apply next-generation organoid models that retain both epithelial cells and tissue-resident immune cells (Cell, 2018, PMID: 30550791) to study pathogen infections including SARS-CoV-2 (Nature, 2020, PMID: 33238290).  The successful candidate will use such immune-epithelial hybrid organoid models to perform infection with bacterial and/or viral pathogens and analyze adaptive and innate immune responses.  The successful candidate will perform BSL3 experimentation with SARS-CoV-2 as well as BSL2 studies with other pathogens and receive appropriate training.  

Required Qualifications: 
  • Doctoral degree
  • Command of written and spoken English
  • A strong publication record is essential
  • Specific experience in one or more of the following areas would be highly desirable: immunology, virology, infectious disease research including SARS-CoV-2, BSL3 workflows, physiology of lung or intestine, single-cell RNA-seq, FACS, and general bioinformatics/coding
Required Application Materials:
