Postdoctoral fellow - University of Alberta

Province: Edmonton, Alberta
Position: Postdoctoral fellow
Deadline: May 2, 2022

Job Description / Duties

A full-time post-doctoral fellowship position is available in the Tsai lab (https://www.ualberta.ca/medicine/about/people/details.html?n=sue-tsai ) at the University of Alberta.

We are interested in exploring the underlying mechanisms linking immune dysregulation to diseases such as autoimmune type 1 diabetes and obesity-related insulin resistance, and cancer. We apply cutting-edge tools, such as multi-dimension flow cytometry, and RNA-seq, and metabolic profiling to study primary lymphocytes derived from animal models of autoimmune diseases and diet-induced obesity.

The projects to be undertaken are supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and will explore the impact of insulin resistance on B and T lymphocytes in host responses to viral pathogens (e.g., influenza A viruses) and in regulation of antitumor immune surveillance. Another project will investigate the underlying metabolic alterations in pathogenic vs regulatory CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in autoimmune diabetes.

Qualifications / Required Skills

Candidates with a doctoral degree within 1 year and have experience in lymphocyte biology, molecular/cellular immunology, immunometabolism, in vivo mouse models, flow cytometry, and/or transcriptomics are encouraged to apply.
