Factors Controlling Survival and Migration of Normal and Malignant Plasma cells in vivo

 

 

 

We are looking for qualified candidates as postdoctoral fellows  and as research technicians in the new laboratory of Dr. David Fooksman at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, New York. The laboratory is focused on the physiology of plasma cells, which is critical for antibody production and long-lived immunity. Our approach is to combine intravital two-photon imaging with molecular and cellular immunology to visualize and manipulate these cells in vivo to better understand their regulation and function under normal and pathological conditions. Several cutting-edge projects are available based on candidate interest and skills. 

Postdoctoral candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree with a strong background in immunology and/or molecular biology and biochemistry. Skills in hands-on mouse work including surgery, cellular and molecular immunology, advanced fluorescence imaging, biochemistry, molecular biology, multiparameter flow cytometry, gene expression analysis, quantitative analysis would be useful. We are looking for scientists that are highly motivated, creative, earnest, who can work both independently as well as collaboratively, with good communication and interpersonal skills to complement the group. 

If you are interested, please send: i) a cover letter briefly summarizing your research experience, interests and goals, ii) your CV, and iii) a list of 3 references, to fooksmanlab@gmail.com. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an equal opportunity employer. We welcome applications from all interested and qualified scientists.
