Postdoctoral Positions in Mucosal, Adaptive and Innate Immunity in the context of mycobacterial infection
Research in the Shiloh lab covers several aspects of immunity including mycobacterial evasion of innate immunity, host detection of intracellular pathogens and mechanisms of mucosal invasion by Mtb. We have multiple fully-funded postdoctoral research positions (NIH and Foundation grant supported) available to study the interface between Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the airway nervous system, and respiratory biology (cough), airway microfold cell biology (innate and adaptive immunity) and modulation of autophagy to treat Mtb infection.
