The laboratory of Marcus Clark (https://voices.uchicago.edu/clarklab/) at the University of Chicago is seeking highly motivated candidates committed to developing an academic career in immunology and molecular biology. The laboratory uses state-of-the-art molecular and bioinformatic approaches to identify fundamental mechanisms governing B cell fate decisions. Such questions have important implications for understanding and treating a wide range of human diseases including autoimmunity, infection and cancer.
Currently, we are searching for postdoctoral fellows to work in two project areas. The first focuses on how epigenetic mechanisms regulate chromatin structure in the context of B cell development. The second project is focused on understanding the genetic and epigenetic regulatory mechanisms of germinal center responses. Both project areas are well-established and supported by a highly interactive group of scientists and extensive core resources.
Job Qualifications: We are seeking recent PhD graduates in immunology and/or molecular biology. We will also consider graduates of bioinformatic or genetic programs interested in complementing their computational skills with bench experimentation. It is expected that successful candidates will have a significant record of research accomplishment.
Application Instructions: Please send a CV, statement of research interests and contact information for three references to email@example.com.
