Postdoctoral Fellow - Interface of Cell Biology & Immunology

University of California San Francisco (UCSF)

San Francisco, CA, United States

A NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available to investigate the molecular mechanism and functional role of ubiquitin-dependent and independent membrane trafficking in dendritic cells at the Shin laboratory of the University of California San Francisco. This investigation will include examining how the transmembrane ubiquitin ligase MARCH1 controls membrane trafficking of its substrates and contributes to dendritic cell function of controlling T cell immunity. Mouse models of autoimmune and allergic inflammatory diseases will be used for in vivo studies, and various cell biological and biochemical assays including confocal microscopy and proteomics will be used for mechanistic analyses. Individuals who are interested in understanding the molecular detail of dendritic cell biology and utilizing this understanding for the development of novel therapeutics are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, cell biology, or immunology with extensive experience in cell culture, protein chemistry, microscopy, molecular biology, flow cytometry, and/or animal models. Strong communication skills and at least one peer-reviewed publication are required.For additional information, please visit shinlab.ucsf.edu. Interested individuals should send curriculum vitae and names of three references to Jeoung-sook.shin@ucsf.edu
