Postdoctoral Fellow: Immunology and Cutting Edged In Vivo Imaging

Posted 12/7/2012
 

Job Description

The Columbia Center for Translational Immunology at Columbia University currently has a position available for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the laboratory of Dr. Joji Fujisaki, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics. We are seeking greatly motivated, creative individuals with a strong interest in highly innovative and fundamental immunological research that is at the interface of immunology, stem cell biology and cancer biology, and will broadly impact basic and clinical medicine. We are presently focusing our efforts on a novel question about the immune privilege of the hematopoietic stem cell niche that shields stem cells and malignant cells from the immune attack (Fujisaki etc. Nature. 474, 216-219, 2011) using cutting edge in vivo multiphoton/confocal microscopy that enables real-time visualization of dynamic kinetics of individual immune cells and stem cells in live mice. The successful postdoctoral research candidate will be expected to learn to use this equipment.

Job Qualifications

Qualified candidates must possess a MD, PhD or MD-PhD in immunology or hematology with a strong interest in in vivo imaging. Candidates should have experience in general immunological in vitro and in vivo assays. Experience in in vivo imaging may be preferred but not required.

Application Instructions

To apply please send a single PDF file containing a cover letter and CV along with a summary of previous research experience, accomplishments, and experimental proficiency. Applications should be accompanied by 3 letters of reference to be sent directly to Dr. Joji Fujisaki via e-mail at:
