This position is in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Rheumatology.  This position is for the Medical School Campus.

Essential Functions

There is an opening for a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate in the laboratory of Dr. Deborah Lenschow. Our lab has identified novel regulatory mechanism of the interferon induced protein, ISG15, and its ability to regulate RIPK3 mediated cell death and inflammation during viral infection and ischemia reperfusion injury.  The postdoctoral research associate will study the mechanisms by which ISG15 regulates RIPK3 mediated activities, including the induction of proinflammatory cytokines, apoptosis and necroptosis using models of SARS-CoV2, Chikungunya virus, and ischemia-reperfusion models.  These studies will include the use of state-of-the-art techniques including, but not limited to gene knockdown/editing systems, animal disease models, flow cytometry, proteomics and RNA-seq.

The PI will help the postdoctoral research associate develop their career by providing a highly interactive and exciting research environment and by encouraging the preparation of research papers, application of postdoctoral fellowships, and participation at national meetings.

Required Qualifications

  • Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree.
  • Previous experience in flow cytometry, RNA-seq, and/or mouse disease models (preference: models of viral infection and pathogenesis) and a willingness to work with BSL3 pathogens
