Job Description
The Ahern Group ( ****), in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute, seeks a postdoctoral researcher to study the interplay between the intestinal immune system and gut microbiota in the development of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
The gut microbiota has long been appreciated to be a major driver of the development and pathogenesis of IBD. Despite this, the specific members of the gut microbiota that are responsible for disease initiation and progression, and the molecular details of immune-microbiota interactions that promote IBD, have remained enigmatic. We have developed a strategy to systematically identify effector microbes that reside within complex microbial communities that are capable of modulating phenotypes of interest. We will leverage this approach, allied to cutting-edge microbiological and immunological techniques in gnotobiotic mouse models of IBD, to identify and characterize the microbes that contribute to the development and pathogenesis of IBD, and the mechanisms underlying these interactions. This position is ideally suited to candidates who are interested in working at the interface of immunology and microbiology in the context of inflammatory disease.
The candidate will have completed, or be close to completing, a Ph.D. degree (or M.D. with at least 3 years research experience), and have experience in cellular immunology and rodent models of inflammation OR intestinal microbiology, including genetic modification of intestinal microbes.
The candidate will join a dynamic research department ( ****), whose areas of interest encompass a breadth of topics related to the cellular and molecular pathways that mediate disease. The Department is also home to a number of groups whose work focuses on the contributions of the microbiota to host health and pathology, as well as numerous state-of-the-art core facilities that facilitate these studies. Our group, and the Department as a whole, seeks to provide a stimulating and collaborative research environment, committed to the training and development of its trainees and enabling their growth as independent researchers. A competitive benefits and salary package is available.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter (2 pages maximum) outlining their research interests, as well as a CV and the contact information for 3 references to Dr. Philip Ahern at ****
Cleveland Clinic is pleased to be an equal employment/affirmative action employer: Women/Minorities/Veterans/Individuals with Disabilities. Smoke/drug free environment.
