A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Andrew Lane at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.
We use a combination of cutting-edge interdisciplinary approaches in immunology, molecular genetics, and immunohistochemistry to investigate the interaction between the immune system and epithelial cells in health and in chronic inflammatory disease. We are particularly interested in basic mechanisms underlying chronic rhinosinusitis with polyps, including subcellular pathways impacting progenitor cell physiology, innate immune defense, and epithelial repair. At this time, we are specifically focusing on how these pathways impactSARS-CoV-2 infection,in collaboration with virologist team members.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a PhD or MD/PhD degree in immunology, stem cell biology, molecular biology, cell biology, or related fields to join our group in a collaborative environment promoting creative scientific research and career development. The successful candidate will have a strong work ethic, excellent organizational and communication skills, and critical thinking abilities. Salary is commensurate with experience.
Interested individuals should submit a letter of interest; current curriculum vitae; and the names, addresses, and phone numbers of three references to:
