A postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Laura Nagy in the Department of Inflammation and Immunity to study the role of the innate immune system, including toll-like receptor signal transduction and complement activation, in the progression of alcohol-associated (ALD) and non-alcohol associated liver diseases (NAFL/NASH). The research will focus on the effects of chronic ethanol or high fat diets on key signal transduction pathways in hepatocytes and hepatic macrophages with a goal towards understanding the mechanism of development of chronic inflammatory responses and hepatocyte injury in liver. Projects related to miRNA regulation of cytokine expression, mechanisms of cell death and pathways of gut-liver or adipose-liver interactions are available.
Experience in at least one of the following areas is desired: cell biology, signal transduction, molecular biology, intestinal physiology, bioinformatics or macrophage biology. Experience in experimental design and data analysis in both cultured cells and animal models is preferred. Strong written and oral communication skills are required.
Candidates should have a recent PhD in cell biology, immunology, biochemistry, or a related discipline and experience in signal transduction and cell biology.
Interested applicants please submit a CV and names and contact information for three references to Dr. Laura Nagy via email to nagyL3@ccf.org
