A postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Elaine F. Reed, in the Department of Pathology, University of California, Los Angeles ( ; ). The long-term goal of the research is to develop a detailed molecular map of the cross-talk between the innate and adaptive immune response in primary and latent CMV infection in the renal transplant recipient in order to define the effects of CMV infection on the development of transplant rejection and, more broadly, injury. The postdoctoral researcher will use immunophenotyping and systems-based statistical and computational immunology to define altered host:CMV interactions.
Thecandidatewillbenefitfroma highlycollaborativeanddiverse team of investigators at UCLA including experts in renal transplantation, infectious disease, immune profiling, biostatistics, and computational immunology at the University ofCalifornia Los Angeles.
The candidate should be a Ph.D. candidate or recent Ph.D. graduate or M.D./Ph.D. with a strong background in immunology, microbiology,cell, and/ormolecularbiology.
