Research Associate in Neuroscience

Company: University of Virginia
Location: Charlottesville
Posted on: June 6, 2021

Job Description:

The Department of Neuroscience, at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work in the lab of Dr. Tajie Harris. The successful candidate will perform research in the field of innate immunity to CNS infection. The laboratory aims to elucidate the mechanisms by which the innate immune response is activated by infection. The laboratory utilizes multiphoton microscopy, confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and other techniques to understand how immune cells function in immune-privileged tissues. The successful candidate will join the center for Brain Immunology and Glia (BIG) at the University of Virginia, a dynamic research environment with state-of-the-art microscopy and flow cytometry facilities.

Qualified candidates must have an MD or a PhD in Immunology, Microbiology, Neuroscience, or a related field in hand by the start date and must have at least one publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Extensive experience with flow cytometry (8 color or more), confocal microscopy, and a basic knowledge of cellular immunology techniques is preferred but not required. The ability to work independently and with a diverse group of scientists is essential.

This is a restricted position; continuation is dependent on funding and satisfactory performance.

Priority review of applications will begin on September 21, 2020, but the position will remain open until filled.
