Post-Doctoral Position in B Cell Immunology and Immune Modeling in

A postdoctoral position is available starting September 1, 2008 in B
cell immunobiology, plasma cell development and immune modeling.  The
work will involve experimental investigation and  computational modeling
of human B cell based immune responses to transplantation antigens.  The
ideal candidate will have a PhD or MD/PhD in immunology or
bioengineering.  The candidate will have a keen interest in the study
and computational modeling of B cell immune responses and methods of
suppressing their responses to transplant antigens.  Experimental work
will focus on determining the kinetics of human B cell responses to
antigen dependant and independent activation stimuli, and the signaling
that alters developmental pathways.  This experimental data will be
integrated into computational models of immune responses for transplant
immunology.  Experience with flow cytometry is necessary, and previous
work with computer models is a plus.  There will be opportunities for
interaction with the Rochester Center for Biodefense Immune Modeling, a
multidisciplinary research group that includes basic and translational
immunologists, mathematicians, clinical scientists, and biomedical
informatics researchers. 

Interested applications should e-mail a CV, a cover letter outlining
their past and present research interests, and names and contact
