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 NIH-funded study 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 and T lymphocytes infiltrating cardiac allografts and elucidate their role in the rejection process. Studies will use a wide range of methods and cutting-edge platforms, including a newly developed serological profiling assay, human cell culture, B and T cell cloning, bulk and 10X single-cell RNA-sequencing, 10X single-cell RNAseq, high dimensional flow cytometry and multiplex immunohistochemistry.
We seek 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 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 centre affiliated with many departments and other Columbia University Medical Center centres. The CCTI was established to promote the horizontal translation of applied immunology between different disciplines and to advance immunology from the bench to the clinic.
Salary commensurate with experience: $62,000 – $70,000
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: email@example.com
