Postdoctoral Fellow - Allergy and Immunology Translational Research

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

About the position

The Food Allergy Research Section in the Laboratory of Allergic Diseases, NIAID investigates the genetic and immunologic pathways that lead to the development of food allergy and other allergic conditions. Research projects may involve basic and translational studies using both murine models and patient samples. Current projects are using a multi-omics approach to investigate the role of the microbiome, skin barrier defects, and other early life factors on the development of the neonatal immune system and predisposition for allergic disease. Additional projects aim to understand how specific genetic defects promote the development of allergic diseases.
