The Trung Pham laboratory at Stanford University ( is seeking highly motivated scientists for postdoctoral fellowships related to immunology of infectious diseases and host-microbe interactions. Our research program employs murine infection models and brings together immunology, tissue biology, microbiology, and genetics to uncover fundamental mechanisms of tissue immunity and immunophysiology during persistent bacterial infection. Our goals are to understand: 1) the innate and adaptive immune cellular mechanisms that contain pathogens during persistent infection; 2) how tissue physiological functions, such as tissue repair and nutrient regulation, are maintained during persistent infection; 3) how intracellular bacteria survive innate and adaptive antimicrobial mechanisms in infected tissues. We seek to recruit individuals who are passionate about advancing mechanistic understanding of infection biology and to provide a supportive environment for fellows to conceptualize, develop, and lead independent research initiatives.
Located in the heart the Stanford University School of Medicine, our lab is part of a diverse, cutting-edge, and collaborative research community in immunology, microbial pathogenesis, and infectious diseases. Fellows will have access to an exceptional suite of career development opportunities, both within the School of Medicine and Stanford University.

Required Qualifications: 

 Have a Ph.D. degree in a related field such as immunology, microbiology, and cellular and molecular biology (NOTE: applicants need not have completed their doctoral training prior to applying)
 The ideal candidates will have experience working with mouse models
 The successful candidates will be highly motivated, independent, and enthusiastic, who communicate well and enjoy working in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment

Required Application Materials:
