Transcriptional Regulation of CD4 T Helper and Innate Lymphoid Cell Subsets

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

Position Description:

Postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Molecular and Cellular Immunoregulation Section (MCIS), Laboratory of Immune System Biology, NIAID, starting from October 2020. The MCIS aims to address heterogeneity and plasticity of CD4 T helper (Th) and innate lymphoid cell (ILC) subsets regulated by transcription factor complexes. We utilize multi-color “reporter”, conditional knockout, fate-mapping and CRISPR/Cas9 murine models as well as RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq and single cell technologies to study Th and ILC subsets in autoimmune, allergic and infectious settings. Please visit our website for details.


We are seeking highly motivated and collaborative individuals with a strong publication record, who are capable of independent reasoning and excited about learning new technologies. The candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree but less than 5 years postdoc experience. Preference will be given to candidates who have knowledge in immunology, in vivo animal models, single cell analysis or genome-wide analyses of gene expression, epigenetic modifications and transcription factor binding using RNAseq and ChIPseq technologies. Previous experience in molecular and cellular biology is essential. The candidates should have excellent writing and communication skills. Underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

To Apply:

If you are interested, please send a short statement of your research goals, curriculum vitae, bibliography, and names and contact information of three references to Dr. Jeff Zhu until the positions are filled.


This post will be available until February 13, 2021 or until filled.
