We are seeking an individual for a postdoctoral fellowship studying the molecular mechanisms of lung diseases. Ideal candidates will have doctoral level training and experience in immunology, cellular and molecular biology, developmental biology, or a related field.  Dr. Lawrence (Lance) Prince, the Principal Investigator, is a physician-scientist and chief of Neonatal and Developmental Medicine at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. 
The Prince laboratory seeks to understand the molecular and cellular basis of pediatric lung diseases using transgenic mouse models, modern transcriptional profiling, single cell technologies, live cell and tissue imaging, and bioinformatic analyses.  This postdoctoral research opportunity will be focused on the developing lung immune system and host-pathogen interactions.  There will be opportunities to collaborate with a variety of scientists, biostatisticians, and clinicians at Stanford University as well as other institutions. 

Required Qualifications: 
  • Candidates must have a PhD or MD/PhD with expertise in immunology, cellular, molecular, or developmental biology, and past experience using animal models of disease.
  • Priority will be given to candidates with prior training in pulmonary biology, immunity and inflammation, or expertise in computational biology including single cell transcriptomics.
  • The ideal candidate will demonstrate scientific imagination, intellectual creativity, experimental rigor, and a history of working well in teams.
