Postdoctoral Fellow – Neuro-Immunology
This could be your everyday
Let’s do this. Let’s change the world. During this program, you will be provided with an enriching environment to inspire innovation that will contribute to the development of human diseases.
The lab of Menno van Lookeren Campagne in the Oncology and Inflammation Research Department at Amgen is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow in the field of neuro-immunology to study how cross-talk between the enteric nervous system and immune cell populations controls intestinal immunity.
The initial focus of the postdoctoral fellow is to explore what neuronal pathways in the gut control intestinal immunity. Using single cell RNA-sequencing, proteomics, genetic engineering and organoid systems, you will have the opportunity to identify novel regulatory neuro-immune circuits and to dissect their impact on tissue homeostasis and disease. This position is ideal for those seeking to understand the fundamentals of therapeutic discovery and translational biology while honing their skills as an independent investigator focused on basic science.
The postdoctoral fellow will be encouraged and expected to develop an independent line of research based on initial studies and to present at scientific conferences and publish in leading journals. The successful candidate will operate in the context of a highly collaborative environment, with ample opportunities to interact with other postdoctoral fellows, scientists, and drug discovery teams and access to state-of-the art technologies and resources including single-cell omics, human genetics and in vitro and in vivo models to study neuro-immune interactions.
The postdoctoral position is for 3 years with the option to extend for an additional year.
