Position Description:
The Laboratory for Myasthenia Gravis (MG) Research is dedicated to "a world without MG." To achieve that goal the Laboratory has a broad-based research program dedicated to understanding the pathogenesis of MG with a focus on development of new therapeutics. Our therapy development program spans pre-clinical programs, clinical trials, and biomarker discovery. We are interested in the assessment anti-apoptotic factors in the maintenance of autoimmunity and optimization of complement therapeutics in disease therapy. The lab utilizes broad-based discovery approaches (metabolomics, miRNA profiles) and focused hypothesis driven methods using ELISA, flow cytometry and qPCR, and behavioral assessments of animals.

PhD in immunology and additional post-doctoral training in autoimmune disorders is preferred.
The Post-Doctoral Scientist will be involved in studies of human tissues and cells as well as animal models.
