NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Department of Physiology, the Center for Vascular and Inflammatory Diseases, at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
The successful candidate will investigate the role of specific subsets of macrophages in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis, as well as autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis. The major goal of these studies is to molecularly define how integrin receptors on inflammatory and resident macrophages differentially regulate intracellular signaling events and thereby confer macrophages with either pro- or anti-inflammatory activities in the setting of health and diseases. The post-doc fellow will need to perform experiments involving vascular/macrophage biology, immune regulation, and murine models of human diseases. Prior experience in at least some of these methodologies, such as molecular biology, immunology, and transcriptomics/bioinformatics is preferred.
