Quantitative Live Microscopy of Primary Immune Cells

Position description: A postdoctoral fellowship is available immediately at the National Institute on Aging, NIH, for investigating systems and dynamics basis of immune cell fate decision. We developed novel reporter mouse strains, quantitative live cell imaging methods, and chromatin assays to examine how individual immune cells respond to various stimuli with lineage and ligand specificity. The successful applicant will work in the laboratory of Dr. Myong-Hee Sung located at the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus ( We are seeking highly motivated recent Ph.D. scientists who are interested in applying systems cell biology approaches to immunology, inflammation, and aging. Relevant publications from the lab include Sung MH et al. PLoS One 2009 (PMID: 19787057); Sung MH et al. Sci Signal 2014 (PMID: 24425788); Sung MH and McNally JG, Wiley Interdiscip Rev Syst Biol Med 2011 (PMID: 20730797); Martin EW and Sung MH, Cells 2018 (PMID: 30205475); Oh KS et al. Immunity 2017 (PMID: 28801231). An ideal candidate will have a strong interest in utilizing quantitative approaches, some experience with microscopy, and an understanding of immunology. To apply: interested individuals must send a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to:
