A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Magdalena M. Gorska at National Jewish Health, Denver, Colorado. Dr. Gorska’s laboratory is focused on non-genetic transmission of predisposition to allergy and asthma between generations. The basic goals of the laboratory are to elucidate the cellular/molecular nature of the parental information, the transmission routes (gametes? intrauterine environment/placenta? breast milk?), and the cellular/molecular receivers of the parental information in offspring. In regard to “receiver” identification, the laboratory initial focus is on cells of the immune system. The translational goals are to identify early life footprints/biomarkers of predisposition to allergic diseases and provide targets for development of disease prevention regimens. To accomplish the goals, the laboratory uses mouse models, human cell systems and a variety of immunological, signaling and epigenetic approaches.
National Jewish Health is a leading respiratory hospital in the nation. National Jewish Health has ranked as the number one or number two hospital in pulmonology on the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals list ever since pulmonology was included in the rankings. National Jewish Health is also a premier academic center with a renowned scientific expertise in pulmonary diseases, allergy, basic and clinical immunology. National Jewish is responsible for many seminal scientific advances including discovery of IgE and characterization of TCR and its interaction with MHC molecules.
An ideal applicant should have a doctoral degree (PhD or MD), background in immunology, experience in mouse models and good knowledge of standard research practices and methods. The candidate should be highly motivated, enthusiastic about science, learn quickly, think creatively and independently and work efficiently.
Applicants should e-mail CV and a list of three references to Dr. Magdalena M. Gorska (firstname.lastname@example.org).
