A post-doctoral position is open in Dr. Emmanuel Zorn_’s laboratory within the Columbia Center for Translational Immunology (http://www.cumc.columbia.edu/ccti/) to study mechanisms of heart transplant rejection in humans. This project will be conducted in collaboration with members of the New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center Cardiac Transplant Program.
The research will particularly investigate the function of B cells infiltrating cardiac allografts and elucidate their role in the rejection process. Studies will use a wide range of methods including primary human cell culture, B cell cloning, bulk and single cell RNAseq as well as high dimensional flow cytometry.
We are seeking a creative, independent and driven individual with documented research experience related to this position. Motivated candidates should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D with training in immunology (B cell immunology preferred) and a proven track record of productivity (first authorship in peer-reviewed journal in English is expected).
Columbia University Medical Center is located in uptown Manhattan and provides a world-class scientific environment for biomedical training. The CCTI is a multidisciplinary research center affiliated with many departments and other centers within Columbia University Medical Center. The CCTI was established to promote horizontal translation of applied immunology between different disciplines and to advance immunology from the bench to the clinic.
Salary commensurate with experience.
Applicants should send a full CV, a cover letter highlighting research interests and goals, and the name and contact information of 3 references to Dr. Emmanuel Zorn:
