The Maehr Laboratory is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow to investigate the molecular basis of immune syndromes and immune cell development.


The applicant will be taking on experimental and/or computational projects in a collaborative cross-disciplinary group. Envisioned projects integrate pluripotent stem cell differentiation approaches with applied developmental immunology approaches and functional genomics, to decipher the molecular underpinnings of human immune syndromes such as autoimmunity and immunodeficiency. In addition, the collaborative project will apply disease models, single-cell omics, and computational analysis strategies based on data-integration and machine learning.

The dynamic and collaborative Maehr lab is embedded in the cutting edge research environment of the Program in Molecular Medicine and Diabetes Center Of Excellence at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
