Immune Cell Migration, Intravital Imaging, Innate Immunity and Inflammation

Henry M. Jackson Foundation, Bethesda, Maryland

Position description:
A Postdoctoral Fellow position has opened in the Rotty lab in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BIO) at Uniformed Services University (USU) in Bethesda, MD.

We are seeking a motivated and creative postdoctoral scientist interested in carrying out a project focused on elucidating the molecular drivers of immune cell migration, and characterizing their relevance in in vivo settings using intravital multiphoton microscopy. Our lab utilizes a well-rounded toolbox of cutting-edge cell biological, biochemical, molecular biology and genetic techniques to address critical, physiologically-relevant questions relating to immune cell migration toward tissue damage, infection or chronic inflammation.

Applicants with a PhD in Cell Biology/Biochemistry/Molecular Biology or a related field will be considered. Experience with molecular cloning, immunoprecipitation, western blot, mammalian cell culture, microscopy and image analysis, and utilization of mouse as a model system is highly preferred. Candidates are particularly encouraged to apply if they possess significant microscopy experience, particularly intravital and/or multiphoton microscopy.

To Apply:
Please submit a CV with bibliography, contact information for 3 references, and a brief statement of current research interests to Dr. Jeremy Rotty at
