Post-doctoral Scholar positions are currently available in the Nagler lab for an NIH-funded program exploring the role of the microbiome in regulating allergic responses to food. Earlier work used gnotobiotic models to demonstrate a causal role for the healthy infant microbiota in protection against food allergy (Feehley et al Nature Medicine, 2019, 25: 448-453). The current project will extend these findings to examine how intestinal bacteria regulate adaptive immunity to contribute to the maintenance of tolerance to dietary antigen. We are particularly interested in candidates with training in cellular immunology. This position would be a great opportunity for a graduate trainee who has studied basic mechanisms in cellular immune regulation and is interested in post-doctoral training with a translational focus. More information about our work and laboratory is available at https://news.uchicago.edu/profile/cathryn-r-nagler and
Interested candidates with a recent Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in immunology are encouraged to apply. Candidates with first-authored publications and experience in animal handling and flow cytometry are preferred.
