Apply for Postdoctoral Fellowship in Immunology & Protein Biochemistry at Boston University. The Boston University Pulmonary Center, Bosmann Lab is recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow for projects on the molecular immunology of infections with a focus on protein biochemistry.
It is especially interested in candidates with prior experiences in protein structure analysis, monoclonal antibody production, protein-protein interactions, recombinant protein production and protein mutagenesis to expand the current spectrum of expertise in the multidisciplinary team.
The Bosmann Lab is looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow with outstanding career potential to promote experimental and translational research. Special areas of interest are the role and structure of novel genes involved in inflammation, pathogen recognition, host-pathogen interactions, macrophages, neutrophils, cytokines, and related signaling pathways. Pathogens of interest are S. pneumoniae, Legionella spp., E. coli, N. brasiliensis, SARS-CoV-2, Influenza and others. The projects will be tailored to meet the individual qualifications and interests of the Fellow. For example, the nature and extent of protein biochemistry, molecular biology techniques, immunology methods, bioinformatics or a focus on surgical mouse models can be discussed with the applicant.
The projects will involve a broad spectrum of immunology and biochemistry methods together with opportunities for transcriptomics (scRNA-Seq, TOTAL-Seq) and (phospho-)proteomics including the data analysis as supported by our Bioinformaticians. Another area of interest is genome editing by RNA-guided nucleases (CRISPR-Cas9) for genome-wide screens.
Candidates must have the following qualifications for this Postdoctoral Fellowship in Immunology at Boston University
