Postdoctoral position molecular and cellular biology at USA

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Damian Kovalovsky in the Experimental Immunology Branch (EIB), National Cancer Institute (NCI), NIH. Research in the laboratory involves a combination of molecular and cellular techniques as well as the analysis of genetically modified mice, with the focus on understanding the transcriptional control of lymphocyte differentiation and immune regulation.
The position involves the use of lentiviral shRNA screens to indentify novel genes that are essential for the regulatory phenotype of lymphocytes, as well as the use of retroviral and lentiviral vectors to manipulate gene expression and to evaluate the immune function of specific genes.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in molecular and cellular biology as well as knowledge of T-cell biology and good communication skills.
The EIB and the intramural NIH program provide a highly interactive and unique opportunity for scientific interaction and growth.
To apply: Interested candidates with a Ph.D and/or M.D should submit: (1) a brief cover letter summarizing their research interests and goals; (2) a CV; (3) and the contact information of 3 referents to: kovalovskyd@mail.nih.gov.
