Postdoctoral position in basic and translational mucosal immunology. Study the mucosal immune system in humans and mice as part of a highly interactive multi-disciplinary team focused on the development of intestinal effector and regulatory cells both during postnatal ontogeny, and during intestinal immune and inflammatory responses. The fellow will profile intestinal lymphocytes by flow and mass cytometry and scRNAseq; perform in vitro and in vivo assays of lymphocyte function and homing in models of disease; and assist in generation, bioinformatic analyses and mining of single cell transcriptomic surveys of human and mouse intestinal immune inductive organs. A particular emphasis will be on understanding lymphocyte responses and genetic programming in inflammatory bowel diseases and cancer.
